CAIRO - 20October 2017: Out of seeking a strong presence in the Indian market and to promote tourism, the Egyptian Tourism Authority (ETA) is arranging four touristic delegations to head to Indian cities to share in two tourism expos to kick off in January 2018.
Being the land of hypnotizing cultures and scenic landscapes of all shapes and types, with the Himalayas to the north and the seas to the south, India has always been a dream destination for tourists across the world. On the other hand, India ranks as one of the biggest outbound travel markets, as it is the world’s second most populated country, with millions of tourists from India visiting different places in the world.
In this context, the ETA will share in two tourism fairs: the Outbound Travel Market (OTM) and the South Asia Travel and Tourism Exchange (SATTE).
Deemed as one of India’s most leading travel shows with a clear focus on outbound travel, OTM is scheduled to be held January 18-20, 2018 at Bombay Exhibition Center in Mumbai. OTM is designed to cover big travel markets in one go, just before the peak outbound season.
According to last year’s ratings, up to 1,154 exhibitors from 60 countries participated. ETA’s pavilion extended over 110 cubic meters during the last round, in addition to 12 other participating Egyptian travel companies.
Ranking as the most prestigious travel and tourism exhibition, SATTE is a three-day event to be held from January 31 to February 2, 2018 at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi, India. Over twenty years, SATTE grew the launch touristic platform for many countries and tourism products, working closely with the Indian Ministry of Tourism, and is privileged with much acclaim in international circles to do business with and in India.
The SATTE International Tourism Fair is one of the oldest and largest tourist exhibitions in India. With a total of about 750,000 exhibitors from 35 countries and 28 Indian states. This year, 900 exhibitors from more than 50 countries will be attending the event.
