DSC_1029The wide range of Sydney and NSW tourism products, destinations and experiences were showcased to 29 key Indian travel agents last week as part of the Focus on India 2016 workshop, hosted by Destination NSW.

NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said Focus on India 2016 provided a unique opportunity for Indian travel agents to learn more about Australia’s premier tourism and events State.

“In the year ended December 2015, NSW welcomed 112,300 visitors from India who spent $298 million, up 80 per cent on last year,” Mr Ayres said.

“These outstanding figures demonstrate that the NSW Government, through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, is committed to working with key trade partners to promote Sydney and Regional NSW and we look forward to welcoming many more visitors from India as a result of a successful 2016 program.”

The week-long trade event included one-on-one appointments between Indian agents and NSW tourism suppliers, and also saw the visiting Indian travel trade group complete a pre and post workshop familiarisation program in Sydney and Regional NSW.

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said encouraging more Indian visitors to travel to Sydney and discover Regional NSW is the outcome of the workshop.

“Our State is home to some of the world’s most spectacular scenery, world-class food and wine and unique accommodation options. We are delighted that the recent Focus on India workshop was so successful in helping increase the awareness of NSW destinations and products amongst our key Indian trade partners, better equipping them with the knowledge to build the most compelling travel packages to attract potential visitors to NSW,” Ms Chipchase said.

“We look forward to continuing to showcase NSW’s strengths in cooperation with industry partners, as well as highlighting the welcoming and multi-cultural elements that make NSW an ideal place for Indian visitors.”
