Tour Operators Highly Optimistic about Bulgaria's Tourism in 2011

Large tour operators expect a substantial growth of bookings for vacations in Bulgaria by European tourists.

Representatives of TUI, ITS, and Neckermann have met with Bulgaria's Minister of Economy, Energy, and Tourism Traicho Traikov in Berlin, Germany, at the ITB Berlin travel expo, the Economy Ministry announced.

TUI predicts that there will be four times more Russian tourists in Bulgaria in 2011 than there were in 2010, while ITS expects a 28%-30% increase in the number of Germans coming to Bulgaria for summer vacations. Neckermann has announced that it expects about 180 000 bookings for Bulgaria in 2011, up from 150 000 in 2010.

The tour operators have told Traikov that Bulgaria needs more targeted promotional campaigns carried out in cooperation between the business and the government. They believe that the money from the tourism tax currently collected by the Bulgarian municipalities can be used in that direction.

Traikov himself has urged an all-out debate on Bulgaria's tourism advertising among all interested parties.

Over 40 companies and organizations from Bulgaria are taking part in the 45th edition of the ITB Berlin expo;
the Bulgarian stand in Berlin is 429 square meters, and the country emphasizes cultural tourism.

Its ok governments and others making wild predictions like this but the reality is completely different, from reading this article it seems they are only interested in the Germans and the Russians surely there is a lot of others too who are interested in Bulgaria but the cost of getting there is the big problem, I also agree that they need to do more in the media worldwide to show others what's available in Bulgaria and I'm sorry to say that the older generation need a reality check ? most tourists are not only interested in culture as stated above what about the younger generation most of which go on holiday every year and spend a small fortune! are they interested in culture? not many I would say!! They need to get out of the dark ages and look to the future not the past which yes can be inspiring but holidays are not all about culture!!

How fitting is this topic being published just two day's after I launched my competition, so let's have a closer look at it's content
