In Hall 23a visitors will be able to discover a lot of things about Egypt. They will have information about the history of the country as well as its culture and details about tourism too. They will have one of the largest exhibition spaces at the show. The area will allow visitors to see what attractions the country has for visitors such as Red Sea, Nile Delta, oases, desert landscapes and Mediterranean Coast. There will also be a stall selling traditional Egyptian goods such as handicrafts. One of the country’s best known chefs will be cooking dishes at the restaurant as well. The show runs from 7th – 11th March.
The main discussion at the conference itself will be tourism in Arab countries and what is likely to happen in the future. There will be a selection of experts putting forward their viewpoints on the matter. The senior assistant minister for tourism, Hisham Zaazou, explained that Egypt is enthusiastic about being the partner country for the show and they are very committed to tourism. He went on to explain that the country is very reliant on tourism and in these times of political change they need to think of their future and how they can move forward.
