Italy, represented by the Italian National Agency for Tourism (ENIT) will also exhibit at MITT. ENIT has exhibited at MITT for several editions of the event. This year, the destination will return with an increase in exhibiting space to communicate the highlights the country has to offer to Russian tourists, and will bring together Italy’s regional tourism agencies, resorts, hotels and transportation companies.

Italy is renowned for its enchanting vineyards, fashion, breathtaking architecture and mouthwatering food. The country is commonly quoted as a top destination to visit.

ENIT and the Associazione Italiana Confindustria Alberghi will showcase their travel offerings in pavilion 2.3. More than 1,800 travel companies from 192 destinations participate at MITT annually.
