Brand cards are designed as a company profile, which provides information about the tourism services provided. The Daugavpils city brand card has also been created on the matchmaking platform, which includes information about the diverse tourism offer of Daugavpils city, tourism objects and tours. During the 4 days of the event, tourism professionals from different countries will be able to get to know Daugavpils as an attractive tourism destination, while representatives of Daugavpils tourism institutions will be able to promote their services by meeting with tourism representatives from different countries in a virtual environment. Participants will be invited to get acquainted with tourism objects and services in order to include the city of Daugavpils in their tourism offer and, in the future, to professionally organize and manage trips for various types of tourist groups to Daugavpils.
