Georgia will host 3rd Euro-Asian Ski Resorts Conference

Georgia’s capital is preparing to host hundreds of top officials at a special conference in April 2017 that will support the development and expansion of Georgia’s ski tourism market and ensure its steady, sustainable growth.

Today the Georgian National Tourism Administration (GNTA) and the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) signed an agreement in London to hold the third Euro-Asian Ski Resorts Conference in Tbilisi.

“It is very important that the Euro-Asian Ski Resorts Conference will be held in Georgia, and especially after [the country] hosted a very successful wine conference in September,” said UNWTO secretary general Taleb Rafai.”

In April next year more than 250 delegates from different countries will visit Georgia to attend the third Euro-Asian Ski Resorts Conference in Tbilisi and share experience of modern approaches and new trends in basic and touristic infrastructure.

At the same time the experts will announce new tourist products to extend the winter season and innovative methods used around the world to better position ski resorts in the international marketplace.

The GNTA said next year’s conference was “a very good opportunity” for Georgia to attract investors to the mountain resort business.

Galleria Tbilisi attracts international brands at real estate exhibition in Cannes

One of Georgia’s largest investment projects, Galleria Tbilisi, has been showcased at a global real estate exhibition in Cannes, France and has gained the interest of top international buyers.

MAPIC, commonly known as the international retail property trade show, hosted 8,000 participants including Georgia over three days of exhibition (November 16-18), conferences and networking events.

Managed through Tbilisi Plaza LLC, Galleria Tbilisi is a multi-functional shopping centre and is one of several investment projects of the Georgian Co-Investment Fund (GCF) in the hospitality and real estate sector. The facility is still being built but has already gained the interested of several international brands and companies.
At the Cannes real estate trade show, the GCF negotiated with international brands and raised awareness of the Georgian market, and in particular the Galleria Tbilisi project.

After the 2016 event the GCF said MAPIC 2016 had been “successful” and “several brands had become interested in the Galleria Tbilisi project”.

Already Galleria Tbilisi, which is still being built, was supported by international brands; the first international brand to open a store at the new Galleria Tbilisi will the Swedish fashion retailer H&M, that’s famous for offering fashion-forward apparel at affordable prices.

H&M will open its first store in Georgia in 2017. The Swedish company became interested in Galleria Tbilisi last year when the investment project was presented at last year’s MAPIC exhibition.

To make Galleria Tbilisi the most attractive shopping destination for locals and visitors in Georgia, the GCF and Tbilisi Plaza LLC will continue working to attract more new retailers and offer them the opportunity to establish their presence in “one of the city’s most exclusive shopping districts”, said the GCF. galleria-tbilisi-2

Galleria Tbilisi is currently being constructed and will open in September 2017 in central Tbilisi. The building site was formerly an abandoned Soviet-era building located in the centre of the city. Those involved in the project said the new shopping centre will reinvigorate Georgia’s capital, develop the local real estate and commercial market and encourage more tourists to the city.

The Galleria Tbilisi building is being completely rebuilt on the site of a building commonly known as the Univermagi building, which is located near Freedom Square. The building has remained empty for about eight years but was now being completely demolished and rebuilt into a modern shopping centre.
Renovation works at the new Galleria Tbilisi started in February 2016.

Eco Green City project will start in Tbilisi in 2017

Georgia’s capital Tbilisi will soon welcome a new green city that will be the first of its kind in Eastern Europe.

Georgia’s state-owned shareholding company, the Partnership Fund (PF), has teamed up with Slovakian Gino Green City Corporation to build the Gino Green City in Tbilisi.
The two companies are now designing the project and plan to start construction works in the second half of 2017.


The total cost of the project will be $700 million.

The project envisioned building an Eco Green City near Tbilisi Sea territory. The area surrounding Tbilisi Sea will undergo major infrastructural development to turn the area into a bustling district with sport and recreation centres, trade districts, residential villas, cottages and apartments, an ecologically friendly housing area and more.

Tbilisi City Hall has already allocated 261 hectares of land to the project. The whole area will be classed as an Eco Green City where 90 percent of the energy used by all facilities will be generated from solar, wind, hydro power and bio gas.

The Tbilisi Sea development project also included building kindergartens, schools, medical and rehabilitation centres.

Recently an Olympic Village boasting about a dozen apartment blocks and five-star Hualing Tbilisi hotel opened on the shorelines of Tbilisi Sea.

In the future Tbilisi Zoo will be relocated near Tbilisi Sea after it was mostly demolished in the June 13 flash flood.
