Welcome to the biggest travel show in the Nordic countries, MATKA Nordic Travel Fair!
MATKA is the place to be for all travel enthusiasts in January. When compared to the other major travel events like ITB or WTM, due to its compact nature MATKA offers its visitors an excellent opportunity to see the whole event and all its exhibitors and destinations during their visit.
Get acquainted with Finland in a small scale and over 80 countries from around the world. This unique opportunity to see the entire travel industry under one roof is truly one of a kind. Each year the event presents approximately 1000 exhibitors and attracts more than 70,000 visitors.
Technically MATKA consists of three events. Workshop day on Wednesday 18 January invites travel trade professionals to one-to- one meetings with representatives from different areas and it includes two events. In case Finnish destinations are your thing make sure not to miss Meet Finland. Destinations from around the world are best found at Global Workshop.
On Thursday the second part of the event is opened inviting all travel trade professionals to Messukeskus Helsinki. Bloggers and reporters meet industry representatives at Destinations Breakfast, after which the day continues on exhibition stands and with different types of programme.
The third part starts when consumers storm Messukeskus Helsinki on Friday. Tens of thousands of travel enthusiasts look for the best deals and their dream destinations. MATKA offers something for everyone.
Our MATKA team and hundreds of exhibitors are impatiently waiting for January and making preparations. Our aim is to create positive buzz and hype for the travel industry and guarantee visitor satisfaction. Events like this offer something unique for everybody: new experiences and intriguing face to face encounters.
See you at MATKA Nordic Travel Fair!
