Business Travel in Russia
January 16, 2007 13:20

The notion of business travel is quite new even in the frames of international scale. It obtained the status of an independent and beneficial branch of tourism in Europe in the 70`s-80`s, while in the Russian market this sector of business started to develop only in the beginning of the 90`s. The circle of Russian tour operators specializing particularly on business travel is compact. Almost all companies of this kind are oriented at organization of business trips abroad. Moscow, St. Petersburg, Archangelsk, Samara, Tolyatty, Sochi, Yekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Novosibirsk, Vladivostok are the cities where the number of hotels, equipped with everything needed for business and congress travel, is constantly increasing. Old hotels are being modernized taking into account the demands of businessmen. At the same time the situation with business travel is often far from being called successful in some of the Russian regions.

Many large-scale international exhibitions, concerning various branches of economy and industry, and scientific conferences and fairs are regularly held in Russia attracting a mass of specialists from abroad. At the same time there are branches and representative offices of hundreds foreign trade organizations, airlines, banks, communication means` companies functioning in Russia and causing new influxes of employees and partners from other cities. If it is needed, tourist firms provide their businessmen clients with not only standard services, such as transportation, a place to stay, and food, but also some specific services gathering information about the potential partners, translating documents into other language, organizing meetings, etc. Often businessmen come with the members of their family: in this case the tour company organizes individual programmes of leisure and excursions.

One of the peculiarities of tourism travel is that business leaves more finance in the country than average tourists. This is why Russia is trying to follow the example of many countries and receives this or that international forum in the country every year.

According to experts` forecasts, the volume of business trips in the world will increase 3 times by 2020 from the present 564 million dollars to 1.6 billion dollars. The yield of this sphere is expected to increase 5 times from 399 million dollars to 2 billion dollars. The share of Russia in the above mentioned numbers is hard to predict. Gaining trust of a conservative and distrustful business-class client is not an easy task. However, experts give quite an optimistic assessment to chances of Russia, taking into account its economical growth and increase of its investments` ratings.
