Why participate as an exhibitor at TOUREST?

TOUREST 2020 February 7-9 in Tallinn, ESTONIA

Registration to the most prominent international travel trade fair in the Baltic States starting from 19.08.2019.

TOUREST is the longest-running and most prominent international travel trade fair in the Baltic States. The Estonian Association of Travel Agents and Tour Operators (ETFL) has been organising the fair since 1991. Tourest 2020 will bring together more than 500 exhibitors from about 30 different countries and welcome around 30,000 visitors.

For travel trade professionals there is going to be a specialised programme called TourestPRO. On Friday, February 7, there will be a concise B2B workshop. Tourest also has a Hosted Buyer Programme, bringing here about 50 carefully selected tour operators from abroad to see what the Estonian exhibitors/service providers have got to offer and to establish business relationships.

TOUREST 2020 boasts nearly 8,000 m2 of exhibition area full of interesting and exciting things and events.

The MAIN HALL accommodates tour operators, travel agencies, transportation companies and tourism support services, providers. There is a special Global Village area set up for different international destinations.

The Travellers' Club area is for those interested in travel stories, tips and hints from different parts of the world. The area is supported by Tallinn Airport and there is going to start a new and exciting journey on every hour, led by pathological globe-trotters.

The Travel ABC area is a place for discussing wider important issues regarding tourism and travelling.

The VISIT ESTONIA hall, set up in cooperation with Enterprise Estonia's Visit Estonia team, lines up the colourful tourism attractions of all the Estonian counties.

The TASTE ESTONIA! hall is the place to put your feet up and treat yourself to authentic Estonian cuisine. The Estonian Culinary Route gives you a tour of various Estonian culinary regions. Among others, we are proud to present the best culinary region of 2019–2020, the Vana-Võromaa Uma Mekk (umamekk.ee). The cosy atmosphere is further enhanced with the help of the Estonian Open Air Museum's Kolu Inn. Kids and their parents are entertained by mascots from various exhibitors. The same hall also hosts a fair stage with a motley programme and fun games.

We will also pick our visitors' favourite stands. The favourites of 2019 were Tanzania in the Main Hall, Aqva Spa in the Visit Estonia hall, and the entire Culinary Route in the Taste Estonia! hall.
