The Cyprus Tourism Organisation took part in the St. Gallen tourist exhibition in Switzerland between 11-14 February.
Cyprus was the honoured country and gained publicity in the media, a statement issued on Thursday says.
Cyprus featured in the opening ceremony of the exhibition which was attended by representatives of tour operators and local authorities.
The mayor of St. Gallen said that Cyprus is a very attractive and quality destination. The exhibition was addressed by CTO Chair and Director of the Zurich CTO Office.
Traditional Cypriot dance and music entertained guests at the exhibition who also had the opportunity to taste dishes from the island.
According to figures, 2015 Cyprus hosted 46.600 Swiss tourists, most of whom arrived in the months of July, September and October.
The Swiss market outlook for 2016 is also positive, because of an increase in the number of flights from air carriers operating in Switzerland, the press release added.
