The dates for the convention have been finalised and it would be held from 16 to 19 December 2022. The inaugural function will be held at Indira Gandhi Pratishthan, Gomti Nagar, Lucknow and Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath has given his kind consent to grace the occasion with his presence and inaugurate the convention.

Added attraction for this year convention would be Post Convention Tours to Ayodhya and Varanasi.

 

We expect participation of about 18 to 20 State Governments in the convention as every state is keen to re-instate inbound tourism to their respective states. This year focus in the convention would be to deliberate about the revival of inbound tourism to India therefore, the theme of the convention and subjects for the business sessions would be suitably decided by the committee.

 

Concurrently with our convention, there will be Travel Mart, which will be an opportunity for the exhibitors to showcase exciting and diverse range of destinations, conference and Incentive venues especially by the state governments.
