The main feature of the Borsa is the exhibition when stalls are taken by the various aspects of archaeo-tourism to display their wares.
Here you can find displays from countries, towns and individual sites displaying their attractions and facilities, and hoping that travel agents will bring their parties to visit their attractions. Universities display their courses, and societies and organisations display their facilities.
Government organisations also present their work in preserving the archaeological heritage.
The exhibition halls – in 2014 accommodated in three huge domes – are always a lively and fascinating showcase for the archaeologies of the world.
One of the most important parts of the Fair is the “Workshop”. This is the time when the travel agents, the “buyers” meet up with the hoteliers and other suppliers who can provide the basis for holidays. Here a German travel agent (note flag) is busy signing up a block of rooms from a hotelier. This is where the real business of the Fair is done!
