This year, In­dia Pavilion was at a new hall and also did not get the prime lo­ca­tion in front of the en­trance gate as it used to get ev­ery year. So the first dif­fer­ence was that we lost pri­or­ity in front of other coun­tries. I sug­gest In­dian Tourism should make all ef­forts to get the front lo­ca­tion dur­ing ATM 2013.

TRENDS:

Most of the op­er­a­tors were be­ing at­tracted by the on­line book­ing sys­tem. All ho­tels were avail­able on­line with bet­ter price to at­tract di­rect busi­ness which was di­lut­ing our ho­tel book­ing busi­ness. Many ‘dot com’ com­pa­nies are mak­ing a change in the present sce­nario.

RE­SPONSE:

We all felt that this year, there were more vis­i­tors from the Gulf coun­tries as we were busy all 4 days. For our stand, we had ap­prox­i­mately 25% growth of vis­i­tors for busi­ness dis­cus­sion com­pared to last year.
