👉🏼 “It is not only encouraging for the OTM travel show, but also very positive for the future of travel and tourism industry as a whole. Government of India is promoting tourism for the last few years in a very strong manner and we are getting the results for the same. The cumulative rate of foreign tourist arrivals have been growing above 8 pc. Skill development, employment generation, facilitating the hotel industry with GST restructuring and with e-visa making India preferable to foreign tourists remain our first priorities while at the same time we want more Indians to explore their own country under Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat," said Yogendra Tripathi to Media India Group.
👉🏼 Sanjiv Agarwal, chairman and CEO, OTM & TTF (Fairfest Media) tells India Outbound, "OTM is not only the largest gathering of international participants in India, but there is also a huge gathering of domestic exhibitors from almost all the states led by the state tourism boards. More than 20,000 highly qualified travel trade visitors have already walked the show to do some serious business."
