Vidzeme Tourism Association (VTA) presented CHARTS at the 21th International Travel Trade Fair “Balttour 2014” at Kipsala International Exhibition Centre. VTA introduced visitors and stakeholders with results and outputs of project and CHARTS Award contest for destinations in Europe.

The three-day event was filled with joy of discovering new routes in Latvia and worldwide and enticing prices. The best chefs, craftsmen, grown-up and kid dancers, singers and musicians made for a very special atmosphere.

Vidzeme called to draw strength from ancestral experiences and beautiful nature – the ancient places of worship as the common identity of the Baltic Sea coastline, routes to the places of worship in Vidzeme Upland, northern part of Vidzeme, Estonia and Sweden, and a website with information about more than 400 ancient natural sanctuaries. Intriguing offers were presented by one of the project partner - Vecpiebalga municipality and the county’s latest cycling guide that encouraged travelling in Vidzeme.

The fair was attended by 27,100 people, which is 15% more than last year, and five thousand of them were tourism professionals and invited guests. The whole exhibition presented 450 stands and 700 travel businesses from 38 countries.
