The New York Times Travel Show will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2013. This year’s show will take place Jan. 18-20 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (655 West 34th Street, New York).

The New York Times Travel Show is the largest annual travel show in North America, attended by thousands of representatives of the travel industry, national tourism agencies and communities from more than 100 countries, showcasing the latest travel trends and products.

In 2013, the Russian Federation will for the first time be represented in a single booth under the auspices of the Federal Agency for Tourism, the state organization responsible for promoting the Russian tourism product both on the domestic market and internationally.

The booth will present new travel destinations in the Russian Federation, contribute to the promotion of the Russian tourism in North America and facilitate a stronger collaboration with official U.S. organizations regulating the tourism market.

Participation in the event will enable Russia to present the most significant tourism projects currently underway, as well as the tourism and investment potential of Russian regions to international tourism professionals and the global travel community, including:

Krasnodar Krai and Sochi, which will host the 2014 Winter Olympics; Ulyanovsk Region, which will house the proposed International Soviet Union Museum; the Republic ofKarachayevo-Cherkessia with its all-season health resort Arkhyz and ancient Christian churches; as well as North Caucasus Resorts, the company aiming to unlock the travel and recreation potential of the Russian North Caucasus. The Russian booth will also feature presentations on the tourism potential of theTula, Belgorod and Samara Regions, and the Perm and Khabarovsk Territories.

The Russian Federation display at The New York Times Travel Show (Booth #1037), along with a broad business program and multiple presentations, will demonstrate the tourism potential of the country and its regions.

At 4 pm on the first day of the travel show, Jan. 18, a presentation of Russian tourism products will be held in Conference Hall #1E12. Media, tourism companies and anyone interested in learning more about Russia are kindly invited to attend the presentation.
