Around 30,000 people visit Balttour 2012

250 exhibitors and 600 participating organisations from 40 countries

Balttour 2012 enjoyed a busy weekend (and trade-only Friday morning) on February 10-12. Two full halls promoted international travel and tourism highlights from Latvia’s own varied regions. The Baltic region’s most eagerly awaited and highly attended travel industry event attracted more than 250 exhibitors and 600 participating organisations from 40 countries in Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East. Among the participants were national and regional tourism authorities, hotels, airline companies, travel agencies and tour operators. An estimated 30,000 visitors visited Balttour 2012 – one of the first travel fairs of the season in Europe.
The Latvian capital is the biggest city in the Baltics and benefits from direct flight connections to more than 100 destinations in Europe, Asia and Africa. Around 5.1 million passengers used Riga International Airport in 2011.
