Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) at its Managing Committee meeting held at Mumbai on 16th August, 2016 has decided “Abu Dhabi” as the venue for its 63rd Annual Convention & Exhibition of TAAI, popularly known as the Indian Travel Congress. The dates for the convention are 14th, 15th, 16th October 2016.
TAAI President Mr Sunil Kumar said that this Convention of TAAI would be held at the important city of our region “Abu Dhabi” which has grown into a “masterpiece” among cities of the world. He added that when a survey was done on 100 outbound passengers from INDIA who visits Dubai, it revealed that only about FIVE percent visit Abu Dhabi, which is quite shocking. One prime reason is the inadequate awareness on the growing strengths of Abu Dhabi, particularly in the areas of Tourism & Mice.
TAAI is associating with Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi ) who have assured of their support to TAAI to hold this event in Abu Dhabi.
Speaking about the Convention, Mr Sunil Kumar, reflected that the Convention would be rich in its content as well as in offering experiential take-home to the delegates. He said that the content would focus on the importance of a fast changing “today” and the urgent need for members to rise beyond the routine.
Evenings will be classy – pre & post tours will be plenty and above all the attendees will be offered abundant luxury of a very high order. Emirates Palace, the SEVEN STAR hotel and with a strikingly magnificent and unmatched edifice is shortlisted to be an important venue for the Convention. Lonely Planet defines Abu Dhabi as “The world’s largest hand-loomed carpet, the fastest roller coaster, the highest high tea, the tower with the greatest lean, the largest cluster of cultural buildings of the 21st century – UAE capital Abu Dhabi isn’t afraid to challenge world records. Welcome to an exciting city where nothing stands still…except perhaps the herons in its mangroves.”
TAAI will be soon rolling out the registration opportunities. This convention is designed to be a limited edition one. One certainly cannot stay away from this most incredible happening.
The TAAI team had meetings with several Airlines on 16th August itself in its pursuit to offer the delegates attractive airfares. The Convention will also focus on an exhibition that will offer exhibitors and vendors from the region, the valuable opportunity to connect with the fast growing Indian outbound Industry and to also promote India. TAAI will promote “Inbound into INDIA” as an important subject at the Convention to encourage the region to connect well with INDIA.
Those looking forward to learning; networking; exploring; rising to situations beyond their current, must immediately plan their participation and not miss out from exciting and momentous opportunity.
