 KKL-JNF's efforts in creating a greener Israel are of crucial importance for increasing local and international tourism.

"KKL-JNF develops and maintains the central pillar of some of Israel's most popular tourist attractions, including Hula Lake Park and Timna Park, which are prominently featured at our fair pavilion. We emphasize that all KKL-JNF sites are open free of charge to Israeli residents and tourists from all over the world." KKL-JNF Public Relations Executive Elisha Mizrahi was speaking at the KKL-JNF pavilion at IMTM 2015, the International Mediterranean Tourism Market fair sponsored annually by the Ministry of Tourism. This year's fair took place on February 10-11 at the Tel Aviv fairgrounds, where tens of thousands of local and international tourism professionals networked, spoke and signed business agreements. 

Orly Spaniol, IMTM 2015 director, said that the infrastructure created by KKL-JNF throughout Israel is not only important, but that the organization is "one of the most important anchors for developing tourist sites for tourists from Israel and abroad. Everyone can find a KKL-JNF project that suits them, regardless of their age, nationality or ethnicity."

IMTM 2015 featured exhibitors representing just about every aspect of Israel’s tourism market, alongside a significant number of exhibitors from overseas. The fair included professional workshops, seminars and press conferences. Tourism professionals learned about the wide range of tourism options out there, including eco-tourism, wellness tourism, cultural tourism, beach holidays, city breaks, package deals and tailor-made trips. All these options were presented on-site, and also discussed during the conferences, events and presentations that were held in conjunction with the exhibition.
