Russian agency RMAA Travel unveiled a unique book “Russian Tourism Market Report: Trends, Analysis & Statistics. How to impress Russian tourists and attract them to your country”.
Russia is consistently among the top 10 countries in terms of the expenses of its citizens abroad. Most Russian tourists prefer to rest in Turkey. For instance in 2017, this resort was visited by about 3.5 million Russians. Also while traveling, tourists from Russia willingly spend their money. All of this makes the Russian outbound tourism market extremely attractive for other countries.
The research by RMAA Travel covers all aspects of tourism market: from overall review to key players, from behavior of tourists to the marketing strategies of entering the Russian market.
“Our agency receives more and more requests from foreign customers on the organization of marketing research and advertising campaigns in order to attract Russian tourists. RMAA Travel team implemented several successful cases in this area. However, during data collection, we stumbled upon one problem: all the information was fragmented, and we had to spend a lot of time searching for data. As a result, we decided to collect all the accumulated materials into a single comprehensive research of the Russian tourism market. And today we are happy to share this study with our audience”, – said Vadim Tylik, CEO of RMAA Travel Agency.
The research covers the main issues concerned with the tourism market in Russia:
- How attractive is the Russian tourist market?
- Where do Russians prefer to rest?
- How much money do they spend on a trip?
- How do they plan travels?
- What players operate in the Russian market?
- Where is it worth and where is it not worth to advertise?
- What an advertising campaign should be to win the heart of a Russian tourist?
- How will be the Russian outbound tourism market developing?
This research will be especially useful for tourism ministries, foreign companies engaged in the travel industry, airlines, hotels and foreign advertising agencies which deal with promotion of tourism and travel-related services in Russia.

50th Annual TTRA International Conference
Melbourne, Australia, 25 – 27 June 2019
Join us in Melbourne, Australia, for TTRA International’s 50th conference. A cultural mecca, Melbourne also lays claim to the sporting and events capital of the country, providing a fitting and vibrant atmosphere to showcase travel and tourism research. Over the course of the conference, we will navigate the terrain of shifting sands – reflecting not only the great Australian deserts and coastline, but also the influence of the external global environment on international tourism trends.
Our keynote speakers are giants in their fields – one in tourism economics and social enterprise, while the other has an environmental/climate change background, an area that affects tourism deeply. They are world leaders, and we are thrilled that they are joining us for the TTRA conference in 2019. Both will be involved in special sessions as well as presenting their Keynote addresses:
Prof Tim Flannery, world-renowned Paleontologist and Climate Change scientist
Prof Pauline Sheldon, University of Hawaii and TTRA Lifetime Achievement Award Winner
Do not miss out on this opportunity to contribute to a global association and present your contemporary narratives at an international conference that has been bringing together researchers from agencies, destinations, the industry and academia since its inception.
While we have identified a range of key themes (details to follow) and two outstanding Keynote Speakers, we are happy to consider any additional proposals for special sessions or workshops, particularly from the DMO/Practitioners’ perspective.
