International Fair of Regional Tourism in Brno Exhibition Centre,
This weekend in Brno Exhibition Centre, so called Veletrhy Brno an International Fair of Regional Tourism will be organized. It is the 23rd time such an event is happening. I really think it will be a really nice opportunity to get to know the Czech Republic and the Czechs better. According to the official BVV website we can expect presentations of the tourism industry in the Czech Republic, promotions of different Czech regions together with regional food tasting, offers regarding spending your free time, presentations about cultural and historical places of interests as well as presentations about gripping natural areas and attractions. Travel agencies will also offer a variety of tourism destinations. I’m really looking forward to learning about cycle-tourism and some tips on spending free time actively on nature.
Along with the Fair of Regional Tourism, the BVV Centre will held the GO Camera Festival as well. This is a festival about documentary movies, photography and books/guidebooks connected with tourism.
By the way, I checked out figures from last year fair and I need to admit that the numbers are surprising, there were around 28 thousand guests, who took part in regional tourism fair, while 879 tourist companies from all over Europe were presenting their offers.
In order to participate in the fair all you need to do is to register, print the confirmation and bring it with you on spot. With the registration you get 30 kc discount. The entrance fee is then 130 kc on Friday and Saturday and 80 kc on Sunday. Keep in mind that Thursday is for tourist companies’ owners only. Here you can find the event’s schedule. Besides that, stalls will be spotted around the place.
I will definitely take some photos and share my impressions from the event later on.
