Tourism in Russia

About the Project

The research team brought together a consortium of EU and Russian academics to work on this project. The NETOUR (Network for Excellence in Tourism through Organizations and Universities in Russia) consortium also included non-academic partners. First, secondary data were collected on the Russian tourism sector, its structure, and its impacts. The study focused on three main sectors: (a) nature-based tourism, (b) cultural tourism, and (c) business tourism. In addition, a survey of EU meeting professionals was conducted to assess destination image for meeting planners. A survey of Russian tourism professionals was also conducted to contrast industry needs and young university graduates skills.
