International Fair of Regional Tourism

REGIONTOUR is the largest presentation of the tourism industry with emphasis on regions in Central Europe. REGIONTOUR is a key project to support domestic and incoming tourism in the Czech Republic. The Fair focuses on outbound tourism. In addition to domestic travel agencies, providers of tourism services in popular foreign destinations and foreign tourist centres take part in the event. International Fair of Regional Tourism RegionTour is held in conjunction with the International Travel Trade Fair Go at the Brno Exhibition Centre.

The pair of tourism fairs, GO and REGIONTOUR, is the widest domestic showcase of its kind, providing a huge portion of inspiration. During the event exhibiting companies present over 100 international destinations, being matched by the current tourist attractions show of the Czech and Moravian regions.

Whether a visitor wants to select a summer holiday in advance with a fair discount, use the current offer of ski tours, get travel information or just dream about new trips, they are in all cases in the right place. The event showcases outbound tourism from the classical holiday stays to guided tours to holidays for sports enthusiasts and adventurers.

Participants include key players and decision-makers in the tourism sector in the Czech Republic and its regions. Last edition of the event gained attention of 402 exhibitors and 28,030 visitors coming from 22 countries, mainly from neighboring Slovakia, Germany and Poland.

A supporting program is prepared in cooperation with trade fair sponsors, professional associations and the region, mapping the current situation in tourism and responding to current problems. Beside one of the most important events - Council Meeting of the Association of Regions of the Czech Republic, the accompanying program brings interesting lectures, discussions and presentations designed primarily for professional visitors during the first two days of the fairs.

The REGIONTOUR Fair inherently includes professional competitions. The most prestigious one is called the Tourism Grand Prix, jointly announced by the Brno Exhibition Centre and COT Media publishing. This competition affords exceptional visibility to high quality achievements in the tourism sector and highlights the news and attractive possibilities they offer. The competition includes the categories of best tourist product, the best single campaign, the best travel portal and the best travel agency,

Church tourism is a highlighted theme of GO and REGIONTOUR fairs. Pilgrimages and visits to sacred sites are a traditional and important part of world tourism, which, unlike other segments of tourism are not overly dependent on external influences. Czech and Moravian regions have a very good position to develop religious tourism and they started to be actively involved in this area. According to that, REGIONTOUR features a workshop dedicated to religious tourism.
