Reed Travel Ex­hi­bi­tions (RTE) made a pre­sen­ta­tion to the travel trade com­mu­nity in Delhi on Fe­bru­ary 19. Present at the func­tion were Si­mon Press, Se­nior Ex­hi­bi­tion Di­rec­tor, World

At the World Travel Mart 2014, the In­dian stall would be mod­elled on the Taj Ma­hal

Travel Mar­ket (WTM) and

Shane Han­nam, Sales Di­rec­tor, Key Ac­counts, RTE.

With a spe­cial fo­cus on WTM, the event served to high­light all travel and tourism ex­hi­bi­tions or­gan­ised around the globe by RTE. While talk­ing to the del­e­gates from the In­dian travel and trade com­mu­nity, they talked about leverag- ing the RTE plat­form to gain the max­i­mum out of it.

Happy with the re­sponse to their first MICE event - IBTM In­dia - in Mum­bai last year, they in­formed that IBTM would now move to Chen­nai and would be held from Septem­ber 3-5.

Talk­ing about in­creas­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion, Press and Han­nam said that, with a unique net­work of of­fices and in­ter­na­tional sales pro­mot­ers, their mar­ket reach is ex­ten­sive. In 2013, over six mil­lion par­tic­i­pants at­tended the events or­gan­ised by RTE.

Press added “WTM 2013 was a great suc­cess, which wit­nessed in­creases in all par­tic­i­pant types and a record amount of fa­cil­i­tated busi­ness. Asian and In­dian ex­hibitors will ben­e­fit hugely from the suc­cess of WTM 2013, and I ex­pect to see a record amount of busi­ness con­ducted by Asian and In­dian ex­hibitors.” Parvez De­wan, Sec­re­tary, Min­istry of Tourism, who was the chief guest at the event, talked about his ex­pe­ri­ence at WTM 2013. He was happy to share that the In­dian booth at WTM was the most wel­com­ing of all stalls. He shared that at WTM 2014, the In­dian stall would be mod­elled on the Taj Ma­hal.
