The CBI market survey on the EU market for long haul tourism shows that the number of European arrivals in developing countries is increasing fast. The most promising tourists for developing countries like to avoid the well-known tourist destinations and prefer to travel to places that are untouched and undiscovered. In general, they wish to experience the local culture, engaging themselves with the local people, and are interested in challenging themselves in a physical, emotional or mental way.

This CBI survey provides information on EU outbound tourism (market sizes and trends), trade channels for market entry, prices, market access requirements and business practices & sales promotion. More detailed information – including websites of buyers and trade fairs – can be found in the related surveys on individual EU Member States.
