The VIII Pacific Pacific Travel Exhibition (PITE)
Today, May 16, in Vladivostok, in the FEFU sports complex on Russky Island, the 18th Pacific Tourism Exhibition (PITE) opened. More than 250 companies from 20 countries of the world came to Primorye in order to get acquainted with the tourist industry of the region. The opening ceremony of the exhibition was attended by the Vice-Governor of Primorsky Krai Vasily Usoltsev, Senator Tatyana Zabolotnaya, representative of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation Nikolay Korolev, Director of the Representative Office of the National Tourism Organization of Korea in Vladivostok Pak Hyun Bon and other officials.
According to Alexey Starichkov, director of the department for international cooperation and development of tourism in Primorsky Krai, today Primorye can adequately compete with other countries in the field of tourism.
“This is confirmed by statistics: in 2013, 1,5 million tourists traveled across Primorye, which is one and a half times more than last year. Among them are foreign tourists, residents of other regions of the country, as well as Primorye residents themselves who visit neighboring cities and regions, "Starichkov informed.
It is worth noting that the exhibition “PITE” from year to year is becoming bigger and brighter, the geography and the number of participants are growing, as well as the area and number of national expositions. A significant area at the exhibition is occupied by the exposition of the Primorsky Territory, at which the municipalities presented their development programs. At the exposition you can familiarize yourself with the proposals on ecological and ethnographic tourism, choose and plan a comfortable vacation at sea, in a sanatorium or a rest house, plan a trip to Primorye and learn many useful and interesting things about the history and culture of our region.
Foreign exhibition partners invite residents and guests of Primorye Territory to visit Guam (USA), Vietnam Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Maldives, Macao SAR (China), Northern Mariana Islands, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, the Philippines, and Japan.
Not surprisingly, one of the largest pavilions at the exhibition was deployed by South Korea - after all, in order to make a trip to the Country of morning freshness from January 2014, a visa is not required. Seven provinces of South Korea have deployed their expositions, telling about a variety of tourist opportunities in all corners of the country - from the megacities of Seoul and Busan to the ski resorts.
It is noteworthy that another Asian neighbor, Japan, also widely presented its tourism potential. At the stands of the thematic exposition you can get acquainted with the new tourist destination - Okinawa. Charter flights to this paradise island from Vladivostok and Khabarovsk begin to fly in June.
