The annual fair is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Russian Federal Agency for Tourism, and the Moscow City Committee for Tourism and Hotel Industry.
The fair aims create the opportunities for national tourism organizations to promote, advertise destinations and for Russian and international tourism enterprises to exchange experience and cooperate.

At ITM 2015,  Viet Nam tourism is advertised on an area of 18m² (equivalent to two standard stands) where the campaign “Viet Nam- Timeless Charm”, activities of the “Connecting World Heritage” National Tourism Year 2015, and specific tourism options such as sea and island tourism are introduced to visitors.

In the strategy on Viet Nam tourism development to 2020 with a vision towards 2030, Russia has been identified as one of important source markets.

Last year, Russia was one of the top 10 visiting nations to Viet Nam with nearly 365,000 travellers, up 22.4% from to 2013.

The event is taking place from March  14-17.
