25 November 2015

Today, Deputy Minister of Tourism Irena Georgieva opened the second edition of the Go2Balkans Tourism Forum, which this year is held under the motto “The Balkans, Nature, History and Culture”.

“Go2Balkans” is held for the second consecutive year and is on the way to establish itself as a forum that enables participants to make direct business contacts with each other and deepen the established links”, said Deputy Minister Irena Georgieva during the official ceremony. According to her, it enables municipalities and regions to present their products and cultural and historical sites to tour operators. She stressed that we needed to offer authentic and meaningful experiences to tourists to make the most of the natural and cultural resources and to work for the deployment of joint tourist products and routes with the neighbouring Balkan countries. “This will position us better in the international tourism market and will allow us to attract more tourists from Europe and the world”, she pointed out.

This year’s “Go2Balkans” is held on 24 – 25 November, and more than ten countries, using over eighty stands, will exhibit their products. The format of the event is strictly professional, providing diverse opportunities for conducting direct business meetings in three separate zones: zone for presentations, zone for exhibitors and zone for presentations-conversations. The forum is aimed at promoting the cultural and historic heritage and the natural resources of the Balkan countries as a common, shared resource. All this serves as the basis for creating and offering new Balkan combination tours and travel packages.
