The Costa Blanca Tourist Board promotes Alicante at the Moscow Tourism Fairs

Representatives of the Costa Blanca Tourist Board have taken part at the Intourmarket and MITT Trade Fairs in Moscow in order to promote the Alicante province as a tourist destination. These fairs are considered two of the most important in the sector, and this year they coincide with the celebration of the Dual Year of Culture Spain-Russia, an event that shows the good relations that exist between both countries.

According to data from the National Institute of Statistics, during the past year more than one million Russians visited Spain, representing a 2.2% increase compared to 2015. In addition, from January to June 2016 Spain was the most popular destination for Russian tourists. Nowadays the Alicante-Elche airport offers direct flights with Moscow and St. Petersburg. One hundred thousand Russians spend their vacations every year on the Costa Blanca.

Vice President and Deputy of Tourism, Eduardo Dolón, stressed the need to continue to promote the province so as to strengthen the Costa Blanca brand in Russia to favour the arrival of tourists.

The MITT Fair is an important event that annually brings together about 28,000 professionals and more than 1,600 exhibitors. The Intourmarket features the tourist destinations preferred by the Russians, including Spain.
