Ed­u­cate the East on long-haul des­ti­na­tions

TravTalk - India - - AWARDTALK -

Out­bound tourism from East In­dia has picked up the threads and busi­ness is on the in­cline as against a sim­i­lar time pe­riod of Q2 last year, in­forms Ga­gan Ku­mar, Di­rec­tor, STHI Hol­i­days. Ku­mar points out that one of the ma­jor chal­lenges that they face when do­ing busi­ness in the East is lack of ed­u­ca­tion. “The travel agents lack ed­u­ca­tion on var­i­ous des­ti­na­tions and fur­ther to that, craft­ing itin­er­ar­ies ac­cord­ing to this is not prac­ti­cal. I feel ed­u­cat­ing the tour op­er­a­tors and travel agents on long haul des­ti­na­tions will def­i­nitely yy yield re­sultsu as at the mo­ment, they are fo­cus­ing only on short haul des­ti­na­tions,” says Ku­mar. He fur­ther feel feels that when­ever a road­show is or­gan­ised, this re­gion should be given wide pub­lic­ity in or­der to cat catch at­ten­dance where leads are de­vel­oped for fu­ture busi­ness.
