BTL - Bolsa de Turismo de Lisboa exhibition attracts more than 60,000 visitors from all over Portugal every year.

BTL - Bolsa de Turismo de Lisboa exhibition attracts more than 60,000 visitors from all over Portugal every year. With a great support of APAVT - Associação Portuguesa das Agências de Viagens e Turismo Association of incoming touroperators of Ukraine was represented for the first time at this largest regional trade fair and presented the #VisitUkraineAfterTheVictory campaign. Slogan of the booth resonated with many visitors, who came up to our representative Olena Kazmina to express their support and confirm their intention to visit Ukraine as soon as it is safe to do so.


The visit of the President of Portugal, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa to the Ukrainian booth was significant, as it once again demonstrated the comprehensive support for Ukraine. And, in particular, the importance of tourism as an industry that will contribute to the country's recovery after the Victory, following the example of filling the budget and developing Portugal's infrastructure through tourism revenues. MEP Cláudia Monteiro de Aguiar stressed the need for Ukraine to be part of the common European space and how important our country is to Europe while visiting our booth at BTL exhibition.


We are very much grateful for this great opportunity to represent Ukraine at the BTL exhibition and the comprehensive long-term support of APAVT
