The International Tourism Fair (ITF) is one of the key business pillars of the Belgrade Fair and the entire Serbian tourism industry. Tourism has a significant impact on the economy and acts as a strong driver of economic growth and development, creating synergy among related sectors and contributing to the overall prosperity of the country. The Belgrade Tourism Fair, as the most visited tourism fair in the region and beyond, through a large number of business guests and B2B activities, constitutes a significant market of several tens of millions of potential tourists.

Due to exclusive fair prices, first-minute offers, and packages with numerous benefits, the Tourism Fair has been for years, a favorite annual landmark for visitors, providing a selection of arrangements and destinations, as well as an overview of everything the tourism sector has to offer. Promotions of popular and available arrangements, attracting visitors and travelers to new destinations, and stimulating economic activities during the fair days, subsequently reflect on the entire tourism year, which is usually marked by the ongoing Tourism Fair.

The partner country of the Tourism Fair 2024 is Greece, and this collaboration will contribute to further improvement of tourism between the two countries. In the pavilion of the National Tourism Organization of Greece, the most popular destinations for Serbian citizens traveling abroad for summer vacations, visitors can expect exhibitors from all over the country, from regional representatives and tourist organizations from the most popular Greek destinations to professional associations. Unique thematic experiences and products from Greece are expected, marked by a long history and gastronomy, offering opportunities for additional networking during the fair with related Serbian tourism representatives.

Traditionally, the fair will feature the most significant tourist agencies, associations, and organizations, hotels, tourist centers, transportation companies and international tour operators.

Serbia will show its tourism assets in Hall 4 of the Belgrade Fair through presentations by the National Tourism Organisation of Serbia (TOS), the Tourist Organization of Belgrade (TOB), the Tourist Organization of Vojvodina (TOV), as well as numerous local and regional tourist organizations from all parts of Serbia. In halls 1a and 1, the Guarantee Fund of AP Vojvodina and the Provincial Secretariat for Economy and Tourism will have a noticeable performance.

With carefully planned and creative presentations, all exhibitors at the Tourism Fair will strengthen their brands and effectively show their tourism offerings, which has turned to be a strong motivator for the decision of fair visitors who are passionate travelers and tourists, as well as business visitors and participants in B2B programs who purchase group arrangements.
