The history of the Market Tour Tourist Fairs have began in 1992. Those days it was the first regional tourist market in capitalistic Poland and the second tourist market in general just after Tour Salon in Poznań. After non-productive years of communism the decision was made to renew the idea of business meetings in a form of tourist market. As it turned out, the adopted formula of work-shop - the event exclusively for the specialists, gained the appreciation of tourist trade and it retained in that form for the next 10 editions.
At the beginning MARKET TOUR Tourist Fairs had taken place in the hotels in Międzyzdroje. (Hotel Slavia and Hotel Amber Baltic). After that, in 1998 it moved to Szczecin, to Radisson SAS Hotel where it had been for 5 years. In 2003-2004 the event had been in market halls of Szczecin International Fair .
To follow the changes of the trends since 2005 editon Market Tour is a part of the biggest tourist event in Poland – Picnic on the Oder. Changing of the character, going out from the closed market halls and making the event open space turned out to a big succes. Every year Fairs are generating a lot of interests among both, visitors and exhibitors.
