Yoga and meditation, a part of wellness tourism will be top of the state’s agenda to attract international tour operators and tourists.
Similarly, convincing international travel agencies of a safe stay and journey for their clients will be a top priority of the three-day global tourism trade fair of Maharashtra from September 28, reports The Times of India.
Around 40% international tour buyers who have decided to participate are from Europe, followed by 32% from Asia, 14% from North America and 7% from Africa. This is indicative that a larger chunk of foreign tourists aspiring to visit India are from Europe.
To be held at the Bombay exhibition centre, Goregaon, the Maharashtra International Travel Mart will see the tourism industry in the state marketing destinations to 75 international and 150 domestic tour buyers.
Maharashtra’s tour operators are expected to keep some unexplored destinations on sale.
