Business tourism is one of the most dynamic components of tourism activity, and enhancing international relations, especially the economic ones are reflected in the increased demand for business travel. Business tourism is a form of tourism with commercial, government or education purposes, with the leisure side as a secondary motivation. Business tourism requires, in general, moving to another location, at a distance greater than 50 km from the place of origin of the business tourist, travel determined strictly by a business, an event or an educational purpose. Business tourism refers broadly to people travelling for purposes related to their work, namely, movements in official interest, commercial or otherwise, participation in various events organized by economic enterprises or administrative bodies for their representatives. Although these actions involve a remunerated activity, they are treated as tourism as their organization and involves the use of tourist accommodation facilities, food, entertainment and consumption of specific services provided by the organizers of the trip.
