On April 25-26 in Yekaterinburg, the Yeltsin Center is hosting the VII International Tourism Forum "Big Ural - 2019", which is attended by 28 regions of the Russian Federation and 8 participating countries. The topic of the forum is "Cooperation as a factor in the mutually beneficial development of tourism in the regions of Russia."
The Forum is also a business platform that determines the directions of development of business tourism, including the activities of representatives of Russian regions and other countries of the world. Uzbekistan has become the current partner of the forum, a delegation from Azerbaijan is active, teams from Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Tajikistan are participating. Such a representation confirms that at present the Sverdlovsk region is a developing region in terms of the tourism industry, which is also confirmed by the facts. At the end of last year, the Sverdlovsk Region took seventh place in the national rating of Russian regions, and the second in the rating of event tourism. For the development and promotion of tourism, she was awarded the Golden Apple prize, becoming the fourth winner of this prestigious prize in Russia after Suzdal, Moscow and Kazan. "Big Ural" is aimed at further positioning the image of the region and Russia.
The Forum was opened by Alexey Orlov, First Deputy Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region. In his address to the participants and guests of the forum, he noted that further development presupposes the interregional development of tourism. The Sverdlovsk Region has signed 12 agreements with the regions of the Russian Federation, designed for the long term. Alexey Orlov named projects that united cities and regions, in particular, the "100th anniversary of the death of the royal family" celebrated last year, which united Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tyumen, Tobolsk, Yekaterinburg, Alapaevsk, Verkhoturye. As a result, a network of regional tourism products under the Imperial Route brand was developed. The successful 2018 FIFA World Cup contributed to the development of the "Legacy of the Past Championship" routes. The Sverdlovsk Region has a wealth of experience in receiving numerous guests and holding large-scale international events.
Anna Lenskaya, the representative of the plenipotentiary of the president in the Urals Federal District, also focused on the development of regional and inbound tourism in the country and the district, noting that this direction is a significant component of state policy.
- The Urals District has serious tourism potential. Among the areas that are already developing in the regions are cultural, educational, event-driven, ethnographic, pilgrimage, industrial, ecological and medical tourism. Interesting practices of including cultural heritage objects in tourist routes are used on the territory of the Okrug. As an example, we can cite the tourist program "Gem ring of the Urals" and the Chelyabinsk historical and cultural reserve "Arkaim". There are interesting examples of event tourism: "Summer in the Tobolsk Kremlin", "Khanty-Mansiysk - the New Year's capital of Russia", the Sverdlovsk regional theater competition and the "Bravo" festival. Ethnographic tourism is a visiting card of the Yamal-Nenets and Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrugs. Pilgrimage tourism is represented by the spiritual center "Verkhoturye", famous for its churches and monasteries, as well as the annual festival in Yekaterinburg "Tsar's Days". Recently, industrial tourism has received recognition, which is not accidental for the industrially developed Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk and Tyumen regions.
The Ural has left the status of a closed region and has become one of those with the best tourism practices. The Big Ural Forum is not only a unifying platform, but also an educational one, where a large number of seminars and master classes are held for managers of travel agencies and instructors-guides; where the problems of the development of children's tourism and the work of tour operators with museums are discussed. At different venues there are presentations of tourist routes and weekend tourist products. Uzbekistan as a partner of the exhibition presents opportunities for recreation in Uzbekistan.
Agreements are signed within the framework of the forum. One of the most significant events was the signing of a protocol between representatives of the authorities of eight constituent entities of the Russian Federation of the "Great Ural Way" project for the development of ecological tourism in the Ural Mountains. The protocol was signed in absentia and in person by representatives of the Komi Republic, Sverdlovsk, Orenburg and Chelyabinsk regions, Perm Territory, Khanty-Mansi and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Districts, Bashkortostan.
An agreement for interaction and promotion of educational tourism in the Sverdlovsk region was signed by the rector of the Ural State Pedagogical University, she is also the chairman of the Sverdlovsk regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society Svetlana Minyurova and the director of the Tourism Development Center of the Sverdlovsk region Elmira Tukanova.
