"We participate in many tourist exhibitions in Eastern Europe and we are confident that UITT is not second to them. Everything was of international standard. I cannot say anything bad. We really liked the organisation of the exhibition, everything was planned well, the attitude of managers and the atmosphere of the event were positive. We are pleased with the number of participants and business meetings at our stand. During all exhibition we had no time even to have a lunch; we were buzzing with activity! All the meetings that we planned took place - this is very encouraging. The results will be evaluated later. We believe that this year we have chosen a particularly successful stand location."
 
Adilberto Riverois, Tourism Advisor and Representative of the Ministry of Tourism of Cuba in Eastern Europe
"Recently, we have become regular exhibitor of tourist exhibitions UITT and UITM in Ukraine. At these exhibitions we got the results we expected, and therefore we participate constantly. We notice an increase in the interest of Ukrainian tourists traveling to Cuba and consider the exhibition a good opportunity to present our tourist product to the specialists of the market. This year, at UITT, target audience has significantly increased. We held many business meetings at the stand and noticed that the other participants – neighboring companies - were also all the time in negotiations. I think it speaks volumes, concerning the quality of visitors. In general, we were satisfied with results, in the autumn we will participate in UITM."
 
Tatia Khaindrava, Chief Coordinator of Brand Development Deprtment of the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia
"Every year we participate at UITT and see that our partners are also permanently taking part in it. This time we have increased our stand to 102 m2 and 18 participants, among them are agents of travel agencies, representatives of hotels, public sector and municipalities. The first day of the exhibition was especially productive, there were many visitors and business meetings. On the second day, apparently because of the business programme, there was not much activity, but, in general, we were very pleased with the exhibition. We held all the planned meetings, managed to establish new business contacts and talked with the press."

"We have been participating in this exhibition for two years already. This year we liked everything: organisation of the exhibition, business audience, the number of participating companies and the business programme. Our stand had a lot of visitors: travel agents, operators, airlines, media and advertisers from many countries. We had talks with all of them and these talks were rather productive. Meetings were holding all three days. After such successful exhibition, we plan to participate in the exhibition not only next year, but every year."

"I think that exhibition was successful for us. On the first and second days the number of visitors was great. In general, the impression is positive, but this year the interest of exhibitors to our stand was slightly less. The goals that we outlined were achieved. Therefore, we were satisfied with the results."

We will estimate results and think about participation in the next year."

"We were very pleased with the exhibition. There were a lot of visitors, especially on the first two days. We met a lot of agents interested in our products and latest developments: new concepts of different family and youth holidays and the opening of franchising offices – all of this was interested to target audience, and this made us very happy. The conference rooms, where we were holding seminars, were full of people. At our stand we held a large number of business meetings. Our partners from different countries came to the exhibition. All three days of the event were very active for us. There were also noticeable improvements on the part of security and the pass entry systems of the exhibition. I want to note, that this year we were the general partner of UITT exhibition."
 
Alexander, Manager, Navigator Ukraine tour operator, Kharkiv
"We have been visiting UITT for a very long time. This year we decided to take part in it. In general, we are very pleased with the organisation and the target audience. Although the percentage of non-core visitors is also present, but despite this, we received many positive and useful contacts. We had conversations with market experts, colleagues, found new partners and interesting routes for themselves. After the exhibition we will work with materials getting from other participants and visitors. I'm sure, that for us they will be very useful. Definitely, exhibition brought the desired result. We accomplished our task. We plan to participate in the exhibition in the future."
 
Lahutenko Svetlana, Department of Economic Development of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration.
"With such a big, beautiful stand we participated in the exhibition for the first time. We took preparation for the exhibition very seriously. Thanks to UITT we were able to present our tourist destinations and opportunities to the target audience. After two days we were completely satisfied with the results. We also liked location of the stand and exhibition organisation. Our stand caused great interest among visitors. We had meetings with agents and participants from the other regions of Ukraine, shared experiences, received many contacts and expanded business ties. Now we have already a definite result. At the end of the exhibition we hope to multiply it."
 
Nikolay Shapoval, Chief Specialist, Department of Tourism and Resorts of the Kherson Regional State Administration
"From the exhibition we received a lot of new pleasant impressions. The exhibition seemed to us very unusual and vibrant. There were a lot of visitors this year. All the exhibitors were perfectly prepared with stand designs and presentation of their own destinations. Everyone was pleased with the new features and products. This year national exhibitors paid special attention to the development of regional gastronomic tourism. It was interesting to observe at the stands not only printed materials, but also gastronomic souvenirs from all over Ukraine. At the exhibition we had detailed discussions with well-known colleagues, with whom we have meeting mostly at the exhibitions. I am glad that the business audience was interested in the complex proposals from our region and we had something to show them. As Kherson region can host tourists all year round, we have booked a stand at the autumn exhibition UITM."
 
Tatiana Pidpalko, Head of the Economic Department, Krivoy Rog City Council
"This is our second time exhibiting at UITT. This year we decided to increase our stand to 18 m2 and we were very satisfied. The number of exhibitors and visitors increased significantly. I am glad that the majority visitors were a targeted business audience, which is why we came. Already we have a result from the business meetings. We had talks with tour operators, travel agencies and other partners, who we met at the last exhibition. In addition, we got new, useful contacts. I think, it is necessary to participate in the exhibition, especially when you are just a beginner. How will you be recognised without exhibitions, if the main percentage of target audience is has been found right here. The exhibition gave us the opportunity to present our own destinations and gain experience, as well as share it with colleagues. After the first participation in UITT, our partners began to come to our events from different regions of Ukraine. We communicate, share experiences and continue cooperation."
