Over 200 travel agencies and tour operators will be displaying in the autumn edition of the Romanian Tourism Fair (TTR), to be held at the Romexpo exhibition centre in Bucharest, November 16-19.
The internationalisation of the TTR is 15 percent, with 13 countries promoting attractive tourist areas and destinations, namely Austria, Bulgaria, Cuba, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Palestine, Poland, Romania, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and Ukraine.
The Romanian Tourism Fair provides attractive Christmas and New Year holiday offerings, city breaks and early booking for holidays and trips for the spring-summer of 2018. The tour operators offer thousands of packages during the four days of the fair, targeting cultural, rural and business tourism, health tourism, exotic destinations, cruises and adventure tourism.
TTR visitors will find affordable, budget-friendly travel packages, discounts, useful customisable gadgets and accessories that suit the type and purpose of travel, offerings and events to promote various Romanian destinations in the highlands and on the Black Sea coast.
Also displaying at TTR are cultural and tourist centres designed to promote the Romanian countryside rich in tourist attractions and revitalise local customs and crafts for Romanian and foreign holidaymakers alike. Many other tourist areas in Romania are promoted at the fair by county and local councils – Mures County, Hunedoara County, Piatra-Neamt County, Bacau County (Slanic Moldova, Targu Ocna, Moinesti), and the town of Techirghiol, which main attraction is the health care and recuperation facility.

TTR will offer both well-known destinations such as Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Austria, Italy, Spain, France, and the UK, as well as exotic ones: Mauritius, Maldives, the Caribbean, Malta, the Canary Islands, Madagascar, Reunion, Singapore and Seychelles.
Adventure tourism is also there at the fair, with offerings designed for groups of 6 to 10 people, to unknown or inaccessible tourist destinations.
