Participate in the UITT 2004 to Reach the Ukrainian Market

This is an opportunity to get a jump on a new niche market to the U.S. in a region that is showing an increased interest and ability to travel to the United States.

According to the Office of Travel & Tourism Industries’ newest international travel forecast, the Eastern European market to the U.S. will grow steadily through 2007, surpassing 450,000 visitors. From 2003 until 2007, U.S. arrivals from Eastern Europe are forecasted to increase 29 percent, and the Ukrainian market is expected to share in this growth.

Year to date through November 2003, there was a 24 percent increase in Ukrainian visitors to the U.S. In addition, the U.S. Commercial Service in-country reports an increased interest from local travel companies in selling U.S. destinations.

Participate in UITT

UITT (Ukraine International Travel and Tourism) is the largest travel and tourism exposition in the Ukraine. In 2003, the event hosted over 550 exhibitors from 42 countries, 35,000 visitors (over 7,500 trade visitors); almost 85% of exhibitors and visitors were senior corporate executives. The show features national tourist boards, tour operators, airlines, cruise lines, hotels and travel agencies as well as key local industry players. UITT is an official exhibition of the World Tourism Organization (WTO).

The U.S. Commercial Service (CS) Kiev will manage the Product Literature Center for Visit USA at UITT, March 31-April 3, 2004. The CS Kiev Booth will exhibit catalogs and promotional information from U.S. firms and/or industry associations, and CS Kiev commercial specialists will distribute them to potential Ukrainian buyers. Following the show, a list of potential Ukrainian buyers and/or business partners will be provided to each participant.
