MITT is Russia’s largest travel exhibition with over 1,800 participating companies from 198 destinations. In 2013, the event recorded an attendance of 37,000 visitors. This year’s booth by Armenia reflected the rich cultural, historical and Christian heritage via travel guides and direct contact with these various companies.
