1st – 5th March 2012 saw the 35th International Tourism Exhibition and Fair in Budapest.

A separate Olympic pavilion was opened to promote sports and the sporty way of life, where, besides the Olympic sports, IFMA member National Federation for Hungary took great initiative to promote the sport and art of muaythai from a specially designated stand at which demonstrations were performed, and visitors to the expo were informed about muaythai. The stand was a hit, with activities for visitors whom were happy to try punching the pads, and witness a short muay boran demonstration held by two young athletes.
