It is per­ti­nent to men­tion that the 2013 edi­tion ( sixth edi­tion) of the Great In­dian Travel Bazaar had more than 8,000 B2B meet­ings be­tween 258 for­eign buy­ers from 50 coun­tries and 269 reg­is­tered In­dian sell­ers from across the coun­try.

Ac­cord­ing to the or­gan­is­ers, with the sharp fo­cus on in­bound tourism and Gu­jarat as the theme state, the USP of the In­cred­i­ble In­dia Travel Bazaar-2014 would be the in­ten­sive buyer-seller meet spread over two days. It will re­sult in sig­nif­i­cant trans­act­ing and cap­i­tal­is­ing of busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties be­tween in­ter­na­tional buy­ers and In­dian sell­ers.

The travel bazaar would have sell­ers of­fer­ing a wide range of prod­ucts cov­er­ing her­itage, ad­ven­ture, wildlife, health­care, leisure, eco-ru­ral, MICE, pil­grim­age and other seg­ments.

The travel bazaar would have 216 booths from where 205 In­dian sell­ers will be show­cas­ing their prod­ucts. All for­eign buy­ers and In­dian sell­ers will have struc­tured, presched­uled B2B meet­ings fixed be­fore the event. The B2B meet­ings will take place at the booth/booths of the reg­is­tered In­dian sell­ers. About 9,000 presched­uled and on-the-spot B2B meet­ings are ex­pected to take place be­tween the In­dian sell­ers and for­eign buy­ers in two days. Around 250 for­eign buy­ers from 55 coun­tries and over 1,500 del­e­gates from In­dia and abroad are ex­pected to at­tend it. The two-day event will be in­au­gu­rated by Parvez De­wan, Tourism Sec­re­tary, MOT. The in­au­gu­ral func­tion will also be ad­dressed by Jyotsna Suri, Se­nior VP, FICCI and CMD, The Lalit Suri Hos­pi­tal­ity Group.
