In Pursuit of CSI:Tel-Aviv?

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Four leading actors from the hit shows CSI:NY and CSI:Miami are touring Israel as guests of the Tourism Ministry. Jonathan Frederick Togo and Omar Benson Miller (stars of CSI: Miami) and Carmine Giovinazzo and AJ Buckley (stars of CSI: NY), will visit Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea and Masada and the Galilee. This is the first time all four actors have visited Israel.

Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov commented that over the last year, the Tourism Ministry has increased its hosting of “celebrities and opinion-formers with the objective of exposing Israel’s tourism product and increasing incoming tourism.”

The minister believes that millions of people who follow the activities of these stars on social media platforms and via traditional media, would be inspired to call their travel agents and book their next vacation in the Holy Land.

“Today, the state of Israel is reaping the benefits of the intensive marketing activities carried out by the Tourism Ministry with the all-time record high in incoming tourism that is expected to bring 3.8 million tourists by year end,” Minister Misezhnikov stated.

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

The United States Tour Operators Association, the largest tourism wholesalers association in America, will hold its 2013 annual conference in Israel as guests of the Tourism Ministry.  The decision was made in February during a meeting in the US between Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov and USTOA management.  The organization’s last annual conference in Israel occurred in 1995.

Misezhnikov called the decision “a vote of confidence in the Israeli tourism industry”.

According to the Government Press Office, 600,000 US tourists visited Israel in 2011, making America the largest source country for incoming Israeli tourism. Revenue from incoming tourism from the States reached about NIS 4 million in 2011.
