Con­ven­tions galore

TravTalk - India - - BULLETIN -

Come Au­gust and the sea­son of con­ven­tions will be on in full swing. Mem­bers of dif­fer­ent as­so­ci­a­tions will be headed to des­ti­na­tions both in In­dia and abroad to net­work and dis­cuss is­sues plagu­ing the in­dus­try at large. Kick­ing off this sea­son would be OTOAI’s con­ven­tion in Cape Town in Au­gust, fol­lowed by ICPB’s an­nual con­ven­tion in Kolkata in the same month. Fol­low­ing closely, in Septem­ber would be IATO and FHRAI con­ven­tions in Vizag and Luc­know re­spec­tively. Thank­fully this year, the dates of any of th­ese events are not clash­ing, un­like last year, which saw del­e­gates skip­ping one event for an­other. While GST ruled the roost in panel dis­cus­sions last year, we would like to see what in­no­va­tions th­ese as­so­ci­a­tions would bring in this year for their dis­cus­sions. In fact, ma­jor as­so­ci­a­tions would ear­lier de­cide on one mandate for the year and achieve it by the next year, a cul­ture now long for­got­ten. We hope that the up­com­ing con­ven­tion com­mit­tees fo­cus on re­solv­ing is­sues in­stead of just hav­ing re­peated dis­cus­sions with the coun­try. Let’s wait and watch!
