The 10th Tehran International Tourism Exhibition launches today at the Tehran Permanent Fairgrounds and will continue till February 9th. This expo themed, “See Iran Differently” is being attended by more than 60 companies from 21 countries along with 400 companies from Iran. The expo has around 35,700 square meters of space, including 10 halls and more than 17,000 sqm of outdoor space. Morteza Rahmani Movahed, tourism deputy at Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization says that this year’s event is expected to be quite different in quality and quantity from its past editions.
To quote Movahed, “We intend to add variety to this year’s event. For instance, in Hall 38, Iran’s attractions are divided into seven regional categories,” he said. Tourism ministers from several countries as well as delegations from Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iraq, Zimbabwe, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Switzerland will participate in the exhibition. We will focus on branding Iran’s tourism exhibition to further promote our country.” The UNWTO has marked this expo as an international event in its calendar. It is supposed to uplift Iran tourism to the international level. It is also expected to improve Iran’s image as a global destination. Hopes are high this year for this event.
