On 24-26 September 2021, the TOUR SALON Trade Fair of Regions and Tourist Products was held on the premises of the Poznań International Fair, accompanied by the CARAVANS SALON Trade Fair of Caravanning Tourism and the Following the Trace of Dreams Travel Festival.
The exhibitors’ offers included interesting proposals, such as regional products, presented by towns, municipalities, districts, tourist organisations, or transport service providers. Exhibitors encouraged visitors to take up active recreation by demonstrating new ways of spending their free time, focusing on the promotion of Polish regions.
The booth of the International Waterway E70 (IWW E70) was very popular not only with experienced boaters, but also those amateurs who like to spend their free time on the water, surrounded by nature. This form of recreation seems to be a very good idea for close contact with nature, especially in times of pandemic restrictions. The guests received not only useful maps presenting the very picturesque and diverse Polish section of the IWW E70 covering the Oder, Warta, Noteć, Bydgoszcz Canal, Brda, Vistula, Nogat, Szkarpawa, Elbląg and Vistula Lagoon, but also other publications. Visitors’ attention was attracted by the “Guide for boaters”, which is a joint work of a team of authors consisting, among others, of representatives of all five voivodeships, namely Lubuskie, Wielkopolskie, Kujawsko-Pomorskie, Warmińsko-Mazurskie and Pomorskie, which are united by the agreement on cooperation in promoting and using this route mainly for the purposes of water tourism. Those who visited our booth could obtain information about the possibilities of navigating along particular stretches of the Polish section of the IWW E70 with the indication of places where you can refuel or safely leave your boat in a marina or a harbour, as well as the possibility of enjoying various attractions in the vicinity of the waterway.
Both the exhibition and the interesting programme of events were in line with the motto of this year’s edition of the fair: “Discover the taste of adventure.”
