The Embassy of Uzbekistan in Seoul, together with Uzbekistan Airways JSC, as well as Amerks Travel, presented the tourism opportunities of Uzbekistan at the Korea World Travel Fair 2022 (KOTFA) international tourism exhibition.
The event was organized by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea, the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). The purpose of the exhibition is to stimulate cultural exchange with a focus on tourism by educating the local public about the rich culture of the countries participating in this event.
The event was attended by representatives of state organizations in the field of tourism, companies operating in the field of tourist travel, air travel and hotel business from more than 60 countries (including Asia, Europe, Africa, America, Oceania), as well as local tourist firms.
The national stand of Uzbekistan was presented by Uzbek handicrafts, national jewelry products, woodcarving, Uzbek national silk, as well as other examples of folk arts and crafts of Uzbekistan.
Visitors to the stand were shown videos reflecting the cultural heritage of Uzbekistan, the rich history and traditions of the Uzbek people, and Uzbek national cuisine, which demonstrate the famous tourist routes of Uzbekistan to the audience. The tourist products presented at the exhibition also covered ancient architectural monuments of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva.
Information on the large-scale work carried out in the country in recent years to develop new types of tourism in Uzbekistan, such as pilgrimage tourism, ecological tourism/ecotourism, educational, ethnographic, and gastronomic tourism in Uzbekistan was also introduced to the visitors of the stand. Business tourism in Uzbekistan as well as the variety of packages suiting youth and families were also introduced to the foreign audience.
Within the framework of the stand, the action was also launched on local social networks under the hashtag “# Uzbekistan”, “# visituzbekistan”, which gathered hundreds of subscribers during the exhibition who posted photos about Uzbekistan on their pages on the Internet.
According to the organizers and visitors of the international exhibition, participation in this event will contribute to the promotion of the tourism potential of Uzbekistan in South Korea and will increase the flow of foreign tourists to Uzbekistan.
