IFTM Top Resa brings together a large number of exhibitors from over 160 countries worldwide. Some 34,000 tourism professionals and 1,000 media representatives are expected from across the globe. After participating in the fair NTO Montenegro and partners organised a study trip to Montenegro for the largest French tour operators.
Many had the opportunity to discover the culinary delights of Montenegro during the fair with tasting sessions of home-made delicacies.
The organisation said that the French want to take in as much as they can from their annual holiday. The main reasons for French tourists visiting Montenegro are to see the cultural sights, discover the natural heritage and local gastronomy, as well as sports and adventure tourism.
In 2018, Montenegro saw double-digit growth on the French market, and the trend continued this year. From the start of the year to the end of August, 9.3% more French tourists stayed in group accommodation (hotels and those of similar capacity), staying for 5.7% more nights.
In the first eight months of the year, 6.3% were French tourists and took the third place in terms of nights spent by foreign tourists. Five days was the average length of stay at their destination.
