  • Published by Vedat

Some 8,846 visitors turned up before the close of OTM – India’s biggest international B2B-focused travel trade show at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.

otm13-indiaThere were 6,306 trade visitors and 2540 general visitors approximately. Spread out over 100,000 square feet (approximately 10,000 square metres) in hall number 7 and adjoining areas of the sprawling Pragati Maidan, the event brought together some 400 exhibitors from 13 countries and all over India.

The first two days of the event were dedicated to the travel trade fraternity and drew a hugely positive response. Saturday, the last day of the fair, was open to all. New at the show was an interactive presentation on revised U.S. visa procedures by Monica Shie and Satya Prakash from the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy, New Delhi, during which they suggested applicants apply directly rather than going via agents. The U.S. visa section has started a group appointment facility for tour operators.

The response from participants at the OTM has been overwhelmingly positive. First-timers and veterans praised the organisers of the event and were optimistic about the business opportunities and future for the industry that the show represented.

Praising OTM’s efforts in the advancement of the travel and tourism industry, Murtaza Kalender, CEO, Travel Shop Turkey, said, “From Turkey, I am promoting almost 20 travel packages. I come to OTM every year, because I get very good response. Turkey has everything – beaches, historical sites, cultural heritage, night life etc.

“We are promoting Turkey as a new wedding and honeymoon destination also. OTM is my favourite; I came in 2005, and have been participating every year since. I recommend to all my friends to go to OTM. OTM is the best in India,” he added.
