- We represent the Caucasian Mineral Waters (CMS Region), the environmental and resort region of the Russian Federation under protection, which unites resorts in the Stavropol Territory, the South of Russia. In the list of resorts of the Russian Federation, the CMS federal resorts are classified as unique due to their high resort and recreational effectiveness of natural healing factors.
Medical and health tourism is the most widespread and popular form of medical tourism in the region. At many resorts involved wellness programmes (wellness, anti-stress, beauty), which are useful for absolutely healthy people too. In terms of its natural and therapeutic resources, the CMS region has no equivalent on the Eurasian continent.
At the AITF we will hold a presentation of the competitive advantages of rest and treatment in the resorts of the Stavropol Territory. We hope to find new business partners here, and as a result, increase the number of guests from Azerbaijan to our resorts. At the stand of the Stavropol Territory, we will be glad to see representatives of the tourist industry of Azerbaijan, large industrial enterprises, ministries of health, education and sports.
The exhibition is a good business platform for finding new partners; every year tens of thousands of guests come from Azerbaijan to visit us for rest and treatment, and their number is growing from year to year. Today, the investor of your country has built the sanatorium ‘Istochnik’ (‘Spring’) in the city of Yessentuki, which is one of the best complexes in the region.
