Alexey Vengin, CEO Profi.Travel:
ОТМ appearance is an big deal for the whole travel market: the majority of its participants are thorough in attending the traditional offline fairs, increasingly money-losing and less effective. For many companies, OTM is a real chance to improve the effectiveness and sales growth of tours and destinations. Numerous famous experts, wide topic area and huge audience make OTM the main online fair of the tourist season.

This season the OTM fair got mobile for the first time. Owing to advanced developments made by Profi.Travel team, you can easily visit the main page, join the presentations and read the materials of the fair from any tablets and mobile phones. Which means that everyone can learn the tourism product anytime and anywhere: in a traffic jam and transport, at home, along the way, wherever! From now on, the online fair attendees don’t have to change their daily timetable: they can watch the webinar while treadmill training, waiting for the plane in the airport, being on vacation or at lunch. We say for sure that today this is the first educational platform in Russia which is available from all mobile devices without downloading any applications.
However, that is not the only novelty. Specifically for OTM, we prepared the technological and multifunctional e-learning platform and developed the brand new main page of the fair. Now the OTM main page reflects everything on the event at the moment — which presentation is on and what is planned shortly. Besides of that, new possibilities of platform allow to see the profiles of all fair attendees and know what they do. All you can see on the main page: who joins the presentation, who downloads catalogues and who is temporarily offline.
The important peculiarity of the new fair is the platform integration with social networks. Everyone can register at the event with one click, share the presentation or attendee diploma at any time. And most importantly, the fair is now available to watch in social media such as Vkontakte, Facebook and YouTube. New technological possibilities make the fair more user-friendly for attendees and exponents and attracts new participants.
Over 3,5 thousands of travel professionals attended the online fair this spring. Autumn OTM will gather together even more attendees: thousands of travel industry professionals valued the fair as the instrument to prepare for the upcoming season to the full, with minimum time and cash expenses.
