In Photos: Get Wanderlust at GO and REGIONTOUR 2020
Brno Exhibition Centre (BVV) is turning into a place of inspiration for those looking to go on holiday or spend a weekend away. GO and REGIONTOUR 2020 are taking place at BVV’s Pavilions P and F from January 16th to 19th. While the REGIONTOUR event focuses on the domestic tourism industry, the GO fair is more about outbound tourism.

Brno, Jan 16 (BD) – “The key themes of 2020 in Brno and the South Moravian Region will be two anniversaries. The first anniversary marks 150 years since Adolf Loos, one of the founders of modern architecture, was born in Brno. The second important milestone for architecture and tourism in the region is 90 years since the completion of the world-famous functionalist Villa Tugendhat,” said Mayor of Brno Markéta Vaňková (ODS).
The City of Brno’s stand will feature quizzes, prize competitions, music, and beer- and wine-tasting, as well as themed presentations and shows from the Brno Transport Company and VIDA! science center, and virtual reality demonstrations from Brno Zoo, among others. The Brno National Theater will also be presenting, offering a discounted price for their entire repertoire, including the Brno Janáček Festival 2020. This year, the South Moravian Region is celebrating 20 years since the restoration of regional governments, and will present itself unconventionally – “from a different angle” – attracting visitors both to lesser-known places and to lesser-known sides of the more established regional highlights.
REGIONTOUR, the largest tourism industry trade fair in Central Europe, will give visitors a general idea of the domestic tourism industry. The fair has attracted numerous exhibitors, including key organisations and decision-makers in tourism in the Czech Republic.
Alongside REGIONTOUR, the GO fair contributes an international element to the event, with the theme of outbound tourism and tourism services to popular international travel destinations. Exhibitors at the GO fair include local travel agencies as well as numerous foreign tourism companies.
The popular travel festivalGO CAMERA, another ongoing event at BVV, has been organized by CK LIVINGSTONE since 1998. Every year in January, GO CAMERA features more than 50 interesting guests. Many of the best known travelers, mountain climbers, publicists, photographers, and adventurers will share their most recent movies, photos and travel experiences. This year’s partner country of GO CAMERA is Thailand.
