Moreover, they introduce new trends and enable becoming acquainted with new accomplishments of the tourism sector“, said Dariusz Rogowski, Under Secretary of State at the Ministry of Sport and Tourism. The Vice-Minister stressed that events of this sort allow to comprehensively showcase numerous tourist assets. “Participation in fairs is an universal platform of activity enabling the presentation of high quality and the attributes of a given country, region, and particular tourist products”, added Rogowski.
