Travel & Tourism Trade Shows
With the strengthening economic base of the middle class, the focus of the people is shifting towards finding new ways of spending their newly found money. People are ready to buy luxury items surplus to their daily requirements. These people are not shying away from spending all their money on leisurely activities like partying at the costliest nightclub or splurging all their cash on travelling to some exotic destination.
This change in approach has given a major boost to the travel and tourism in the country.
India, which was formerly renowned for being one of the finest destination for the tourists all across the globe has transformed into a major hub for foreign travel companies. These companies are on the prowl and are ready to woo Indian customers with new and exciting travel packages. Therefore, travel trade fairs have become the need of the hour for Indian and international traders.
A travel and tourism trade fair is quite different from other run of the mill events. The objective of the event is to attract the end users towards the travel destination which calls for a peculiar approach. Generally, the travel trade fairs ooze the spirit of a carnival with a celebratory atmosphere. The hordes of people that gather are enticed with attractive travel packages and mega offers. The infrastructure is always glossy and local flavor is added to the mix to bring potential customers closer to the culture of the travel destinations. The promotion is not only limited to the infrastructure, but it is also popularized through local cuisine and apparel. The single goal of these trade shows is to grab the attention of the general public and allure them towards these destinations.
In addition to the trade buyers and end users, travel and tourism trade shows pull in huge crowds of enthusiastic visitors. These visitors attend these events for fun and frolic. The fact that there is no compulsion to buy makes travel fairs the ultimate holiday destination for the local inhabitants.
The significance of the travel and tourism trade shows could not be denied in the modern times. The huge rewards that they reap for the exhibitors and visitors alike cannot be overlooked. Hence, the trading associations and organizers take special care before organizing such mega events. The frequency of organization of travel and tourism trade fairs is increasing with each passing season and there is no end to their popularity amongst the masses and classes.
