Cultural and Heritage Tourism is a growing and lucrative sector of the travel industry. The number of people enjoying cultural and heritage activities when traveling has grown so significantly that it is now recognized as a high profile mass market.

The travel trade has not been indifferent to this trend. Since 2002 ITB Berlin- the largest tourism trade show in the world - has featured an increasingly popular Hall of Cultural Tourism, a unique area of exhibitors such as museums, theaters and "art cities" designed to showcase the colorful spectrum of heritage and cultural tourism opportunities.
