The calendar of event tourism of the Baikal regions

Representatives of the tourist industry of Siberia have created a single calendar of event tourism of the three Baikal regions - the Irkutsk region, Buryatia and Transbaikalia, informed the TASS the President of the Interregional Association of Event Tourism of Siberia (IAETS) Maxim Khvostishkov. According to Khvostishkov, about 14 million places for tourists are created at the moment in the three Baikal regions.

"The potential of events that are able to attract tourists to these territories is not completely unleashed at the moment, because to the disparate strategies and actions of the regions.

The event calendar allows to unite efforts in this part and to form a through flow of tourists through the Baikal region. For example, tourists, who will arrive in February to the Irkutsk "Zimniada" (a festival of winter sports on the ice of Lake Baikal - the note of TASS), can also be targeted at interesting events in Buryatia and Transbaikalia and personally or through tour operators plan to visit not one but several regions at once,” noted the head of the association.
