City of good thoughts

Participation in tourism events

Tartu is represented at a number of local and international events, of which the most important ones for tourism professionals are the annual travel fairs Tourest in Tallinn and Balttour in Riga. Previously, Tartu has been represented at major travel fairs in Finland, Germany, Poland, Russia and Lithuania, and, in cooperation with the Estonian Tourist Board and various partners, an effort is made to try and find the best options to continue carrying out marketing activities in the aforementioned target markets.

 

Lithuania is becoming an important target market where in cooperation with other South-Estonian tourism developers, an effort is made to try and increase our presence at the tourism and leisure fair Adventur. In Russia, Enterprise Estonia (Ettevõtluse Arendamise Sihtasutus, or EAS, in Estonian) organises seminars for tourism professionals, which take place in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities further away. In Finland, the presence at the St Martin's Day Fair in November has become important and, whenever possible, attending the travel fair MATKA together with other Estonian regions.

 

Traditionally, the Tartu Convention Bureau represents Tartu at the business travel fair Convene taking place in Lithuania, and in Estonia at the Meet Estonia FAM taking place under the leadership of the Estonian Convention Bureau, and organises the post-tour to Tartu within the Meet Estonia programme. In addition, an effort is made to try and find new events to attend that would help effectively introduce Tartu’s possibilities at different target markets.

 

The information concerning participation in the fairs is sent to collaborating partners a few months before the fairs take place. If you wish to receive more information and take part in fairs and other contact events, please turn to our marketing specialists.

    Press & FAM tours

    In cooperation with several parties and collaborating partners, we organise both press as well as FAM tours. As a local business, you can contribute to the organisation of these trips more frequently and at a better quality by receiving visitors at your own expense. If you are a representative of the press or a travel agency and you wish to get acquainted with Tartu and Tartu County, please send us a short self-introduction, including why and what you are interested in, and, whenever possible, we can arrange a suitable press or FAM tour.

  • Projects & campaigns

    Projects & campaigns

    The Tartu County Tourism Foundation represents the city and county of Tartu in the Livonian Culinary Route project as one of the leaders in creating the Via Hanseatica culinary route. In addition, an application for the Via Hanseatica+ project, aimed at extending the existing tourism route in the direction of Western Estonia and Pskov, was submitted to the EST-RUS programme and we are currently waiting for the decision. In addition to major collaborative projects, funding from the Leader programme has been received for Tartu County’s cross-promotion and -signposting project, the aim of which is to increase the cooperation between local tourist attractions.

     

    In the past, the Tartu County Tourism Foundation has carried out a large number of diverse projects, in the course of which public tourism services have been developed, tourist attractions have been created and restored, various marketing activities have been implemented, and much more. The most notable among the recently finished projects, in which the Tartu County Tourism Foundation participated as a collaborative partner, are Living on the Edge and Riverways as the umbrella projects of South Estonia’s Leader group.

     

    The most important among the campaigns are various marketing campaigns in adjacent markets as well as the annual summer campaign of the city of Tartu.
