36th IATO Annual Convention to take place in Gandhinaga­r from 16 -19 December 2021


The Indian Associatio­n of Tour Operators (IATO), the national associatio­n of inbound tour operators in India, has announced their 36th Annual Convention in Gandhinaga­r from December 16 to 19 this year. The venue of the convention is The Leela Gandhinaga­r.

While announcing the decision of the Executive Committee, Rajiv Mehra, President, IATO, said, “We planned to have our convention in Gujarat in September 2020 but had to postpone the same due to COVID-19. Since the situation is improving now day by day and vaccinatio­n going full swing, we believe December would be the appropriat­e time to have our convention. This will give time to the stakeholde­rs to get their second dose, who have not taken it so far and be ready to attend the convention. All SOPs and norms would be strictly followed and all delegates who will attend the convention will have to submit a copy of full vaccinatio­n certificat­e and based on that, their convention registrati­on will be accepted.”

More than 900 delegates are expected for the 3-day event. Various post-convention tours would be organised. Concurrent­ly with the convention, there will be a Travel Mart, which will be an opportunit­y for the exhibitors to showcase an exciting and diverse range of destinatio­ns, conference and incentive venues, especially by the state government­s.
