Hundreds of visitors of the Romanian stand at the Berlin Tourism Fair showed interest in the tourist offers of our countries, in the first day when the event was opened to the public, reads a release of the Ministry of Tourism issued on Sunday.
“Receiving all the attention were the 40 exhibitors, tour operators, airlines and local authorities who gave information to interested tourists and presented tourist offers especially prepared for the German visitors of the Berlin Tourism Fair. The Ministry of Tourism made available the ITB stand covering a 239 sq m surface for tour operators and economic operators interested in promoting in Germany the offers for our country. If the artists were the ones who attracted the Germans to Romania’s stand, the most important role at the ITB Berlin was played by tour operators, airlines and local authorities that presented the tourist offer of Romania,” reads the document.
According to the institutions, the visitors came in a large number to Romania’s stand also thanks to the presence of the artists.
“All the artists who attracted the Berlinese with dances, songs and samples of the typical craftsmanship of our country came to support the promotion of Romania without asking for any money, besides the joy to help improving the image of our country. In the first day devoted to the public, the “Romanasul” ensemble from Cluj attracted tens of thousands to each of the artistic moments presented at the stand of the Ministry of Tourism. Romania also benefited from the presence of “The Humans” music band, our country’s representative to the Eurovision, who performed a concert at ITB Berlin,” mentions the source.
The Ministry of Tourism specified that the German public had a chance to play chess with an world champion thanks to the presence of Miruna Lehaci, the 13-year old Romania who is a junior champion.
“At Romania’s stand, the Germans can participate in the last day of the fair in the most veritable moments of celebration, thanks to the Junii Sibiului ensemble, which will perform popular dances and traditions from all the historical regions of Romania. Craftsman Sebastian Paic will also have an workshop for painting eggs,” reads the abovementioned release.
