ITM_Mongolia_Expo_centerThe Mongolian Tourism Association in conjunction with the Tourism Department of Ulaanbaatar city held the International Travel Mart 2014 in March 22-23, 2014.

The exhibition hosted at Misheel Expo Center showed a significant improvement over the last few years in terms of activities, entertainment and stand design. This year more than 50 organizations were represented who were united by their provinces and their stands intended to display themes unique to their provinces. Thus, the Gobi area stand focused on dinosaur theme, while the stand of Arkhangai aimag mainly put focus on Hunnu period (300 B.C.) describing itself as “the cradle of Hunnu”. 16 aimags out of total 21 participated in this year's event. It should be noted that this year the participants from local provinces were more creative in their display stand designs.

During the event, Mongolian Tourism Association announced that it will launch a dedicated website for the International Travel Mart which will be finished by 2015. A series of seminars, discussions and trainings related to tourism industry were held during the event.

Besides various airlines, local tourism authorities, tourist camps and tour operators, some xartists were widely represented who performed many traditional music and songs in unorthodox way.
