Guests of the exhibition got acquainted with the objects that have recently been included in the European Route Industrial Heritage. For example, the open-pit quarry of PJSC “Southern Mining Plant” and the coke-chemical industrial section of PJSC “ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih” could be seen with their own eyes thanks to the creative attraction using VR-360 headset.

“There are many active enterprises in Kryvyi Rih and most of them practice excursions and tours. This may be a good example for other tourist regions of Ukraine, as Kryvyi Rih goes this route as a trailblazer,” Ivan Liptuha, President of the National Tourist Organization of Ukraine, said.

"I am in love with Kryvyi Rih. Each time I visit this city I get new experiences. Descent to the mine stamped an impression in my memory. It is very interesting to compare the descent in virtual reality with VR-360 glasses with this in real life,”- these impressions were shared by Viacheslav Oreshchenko, a guide of Civic Union “Ukrainian Tourist Guides Association”.

In addition, during the three-day exhibition, the Kryvyi Rih team presented its own project "Kryvyi Rih all year round". The tourist season is losing momentum, everyone is getting comfortable on the sofas, but Kryvyi Rih has something to show during the winter season.

"This is the second presentation of the project at a tourist exhibition (the first one was in the spring), but this time we are focusing on the autumn, winter and spring types of tourism in our city. So to speak, you should not go to resorts in winter, because you can spend a lot of time in Ukraine as well. " – this thought was shared Olga Kramarenko, Head of the Industrial Tourism Department of CE "Kryvyi Rih City Development Institution".

The presentation of the project was joined by the players of the tourist business of the iron heart of Ukraine (PO "TC "Kryvbastur" and the blacksmith workshop "ARTHINI") and the hotel "Druzhba" (tourists need to be sure of the comfortable accommodation in another city. They told about the most interesting attractions of the city; tour operators, where you can book a tour to Kryvyi Rih; about hotels etc.

Already the traditional and most enjoyable part was the raffle after the presentation. They organized a prizes-for-all lottery and played valuable presents as well as souvenirs. Everyone was satisfied, unequivocally!

At once after the presentation, they quickly ran into "B2B WORKSHOP 10 x 10". 10 cities and regions of Ukraine met with 10 international buyers from Azerbaijan, the United Kingdom, Germany, Israel, Kuwait, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Turkey and France. Of course, Kryvyi Rih shared the results of the industrial tourism program.

And the results of work at the exhibition already make themselves known: phone calls, business conversations, setting priorities for the future and outlining the immediate tasks to be accomplished.

Finally, we say the traditional phrase: "Everything will be tourism! Everything will be industrial!". Welcome everyone to get acquainted personally with the "iron heart of Ukraine"!
