Mad­hya Pradesh Tourism Board (MPTB), a nodal body formed for un­der­tak­ing all tourism pro­mo­tion ac­tiv­i­ties for the state of Mad­hya Pradesh and rep­re­sent­ing the in­ter­ests of all stake­hold­ers, is or­gan­is­ing Mad­hya Pradesh Travel Mart 2017 (MPTM) from Oc­to­ber 27-29 at Ho­tel Lake View, Bhopal. The fourth edi­tion of the mart seeks to por­tray the state as a year-round tourism des­ti­na­tion, with a fo­cus on both do­mes­tic and inbound tourism.

Mad­hya Pradesh is soaked in her­itage that few are aware of. This cen­tral In­dian state has al­ways brought to the fore in­no­va­tive con­cepts such as Jal Ma­hot­sav that has only gained pop­u­lar­ity since its com­mence­ment. MPTM 2017 will fur­ther the state’s pres­ence on the tourism map of the coun­try and the world, as the event is look­ing to re­ceive a large num­ber of at­ten­dees.

This year, the gov­ern­ment has formed an ad­vi­sory com­mit­tee that will man­age the en­tire event, a model ideated on the lines of Ker­ala Travel Mart.

This year’s event will see in at­ten­dance over 200 national and in­ter­na­tional buy­ers and close to 100 do­mes­tic ex­hibitors. With B2B ses­sions sched­uled over two days, that is, Oc­to­ber 28 and 29, par­tic­i­pants will have the op­por­tu­nity to form suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tions and net­work with in­dus­try play­ers that would in­clude air­lines, ac­com­mo­da­tion providers, des­ti­na­tion man­age­ment com­pa­nies, her­itage ho­tels, wildlife re­sorts, etc.

Keep­ing in line with the theme for the con­ven­tion, ‘Dis­cover-Seek-Ex­plore’, MPTB will also or­gan­ise post-con­ven­tion tours to show­case a world of in­no­va­tive prod­ucts and un­ex­plored des­ti­na­tions that the state has to of­fer.

Hari Ran­jan Rao, Sec­re­tary-Tourism, Gov­ern­ment of Mad­hya Pradesh, states that this year, the gov­ern­ment has formed an ad­vi­sory com­mit­tee that will man­age the en­tire event, a model ideated on the lines of Ker­ala Travel Mart.

Sup­ported by var­i­ous trade or­gan­i­sa­tions that in­clude ADTOI, ATTOI, IATO, FAITH, TAAI and TAFI, this year’s mart will see par­tic­i­pa­tion from in­ter­na­tional play­ers from Euro­pean coun­tries of Spain, Nether­lands, Ger­many, Nor­way, Poland, Aus­tria and South­east Asian coun­tries of Sin­ga­pore and Thai­land among many oth­ers.
