The exhibition is well attended by Kazakhstan travel agencies and operators who are looking to source new destinations for the market.

“In the last edition of KITF, 85% of exhibitors signed contracts/made agreements onsite,” said Steinmetz. “KITF will present the world’s best resorts, upscale hotels, convenient air flights, conclusive workshops, profit-making decisions and special offers of leisure activities, and new solutions in the tourism industry. eTN is proud to support this important event.”
As well as being an important marketing tool for presenting new travel packages, KITF is also a place to learn about the latest developments. Through its specialized business program, KITF 2015 will present the latest industry news through informal seminars and training programs held at the event.
