The day-long con­clave was or­gan­ised by PHD Cham­ber and sup­ported by the Min­istry of Tourism (MOT). Spe­cial ad­dresses were given by H.E. Sabit Suba­sic, Am­bas­sador of Bos­nia and Herze­gov­ina; Ajay Data, Chair­man, Ra­jasthan Chap­ter, PHD Cham­ber; Vi­jay Goel, Pres­i­dent, Her­itage In­dia Foun­da­tion and for­mer MP, and spe­cial guest Parvez De­wan, Ad­vi­sor to the Gov­er­nor, Jammu and Kash­mir Govern­ment.

An ex­ten­sive study on Tourism was also launched at the event. The first tech­ni­cal ses­sion saw dis­cus­sions on “Op­por­tu­ni­ties and Chal­lenges- Mak­ing In­cred­i­ble In­dia: Swachh, Sundar, Sashakt Bharat,” fol­lowed by a se­cond ses­sion on “Im­por­tance of Start-ups in con­tribut­ing to the restora­tion of In­dian her­itage and hos­pi­tal­ity” and “Role of Royal fam­i­lies of In­dia in preserving In­dian her­itage for across all gen­era-

Ad­dress­ing the con­clave, Anil Khai­tan, Vice Pres­i­dent, PHD Cham­ber, said, “16 airstrips in Ra­jasthan are not in use, th­ese are in Jhun­jhunu, Kolana, Lal­garh, Hamir­garh, Daura, Nau­gaul, Noon, Phalodi, Sirohi, So­jat, Sawai Mad­hopur, Tara­pura, Mount Abu Road, Thana Gazi, Par­i­hara and also that three air­ports, which are in the hands of pri­vate groups, have not started. We re­ally need to work on this and im­prove con­nec­tiv­ity. Small town con­nec­tiv­ity has to be made; this will help in­crease tourism by leaps and bounds.”

Parvez De­wan, Ad­vi­sor to the Gov­er­nor, Jammu and Kash­mir Govern­ment, said that there is a trend among ho­tels to have a sense of the place; this is well evinced in her­itage ho­tels es­pe­cially in Ra­jasthan. He urged hoteliers to def­i­nitely have a li­brary in their ho­tels with books on her­itage.
