the country, visiting the main tourist sites.

The week-long convention is held in cooperation with El Al, regional tourism
associations, the Hotels Association and the Incoming Tour Operators
Association. Most of the participants have never visited Israel before, and
the objective is to expose them to Israel’s varied tourism options and its

package options.

in accordance with their interests and preferences. Professional workshops
are also on offer with local tour operators and hoteliers.
