Austria will be participating through its National Tourism Bureau, which oversees tourism activities in Austria. Turkey’s Ministry of Tourism will be represented, along with a number of tourism companies from Turkey. And after the success of its participation in the 2010 session, Malaysia will be represented by its tourism board, as will the Mauritius Tourism Board.
