KERALA TOURISM PARTNERSHIP MEETS 2016 - 2017 - PHASE I
Kerala ranks amongst India's top three tourist destinations. For decades, Kerala has been promoted as God's Own Country because of its varied and divine offerings for every discerning tourist. Endless green landscapes, abundance of flora and fauna, serene backwaters, inviting beaches, picturesque hillstations, delightful gourmet, world renowned Ayurveda, culture and art…reasons to visit Kerala are aplenty.
The Kerala growth story was given further impetus with 2015-16 being declared as Visit Kerala year. Several initiatives were drawn to attract tourists from across India and world. For travel trade, both in Kerala and the rest of the country, it spelled a never-before opportunity.
Kerala Tourism announces a series of partnership meets to enable networking among Kerala travel hospitality trade and native tour operators in highly potential Indian cities to generate tourist traffic. Hoteliers, tour operators, houseboat operators, home stays and Ayurveda centres will represent Kerala.
In keeping with the perception of Brand Kerala as an exotic travel destination, the event will be hosted in strategically located venues - preferably premium banquet facilities. The day-long B2B event will focus on the promotion of Kerala Tourism and its products to a wide audience of buyers from target cities. The department will invite and ensure the presence of potential buyers - viz tour operators and travel agents. The meet shall convey what the state has to offer and help them explore the opportunity to its fullest. The event will conclude with a cultural program and dinner.
