The Cyprus Tourism Organization is coordinating its presence at MTF with its marketing office in Dubai to promote Cyprus as a tourist destination for tourists from Asian markets such as India and China, and combined packages featuring Cyprus, Greece and Egypt.

A CTO spokesman said they recognized the importance of MTF in its marketing plans to reach a much broader range of tourists.

Despite regional tensions in the Middle East, trade pre-registration has exceeded expectations and are currently over 100% up on the same figure for the corresponding period last year.

A total of 27 countries are represented in this year’s exhibition, including 5 new countries: Brazil, Bulgaria, France, Kosovo and Uganda.

Greece will be this years’ Feature Country and will be hosting a Gala Dinner on the opening evening of the exhibition at the Four Seasons Nile Plaza hotel. They will also be exhibiting on stand of over 160sq.m. showcasing all that this unique destination has to offer.

The Hosted Buyer programme was new to the show last year and this year will double in size attracting key meetings and incentives buyers from around the world. The show will also see the Meridian Club lounge moving onto the show floor to be situated next to the hosted appointment session area, making it more convenient and accessible to our VIP buyers.
