The Goa Tourism Department, in partnership with Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) India Chapter, is organising its first-ever Roadshow across Europe. The roadshow will start on April 18 from Frankfurt, Zurich on April 20, Vienna on April 24, and will end in Paris on April 26, 2023
Minister for Tourism, IT & EC and Printing & Stationery, Government of Goa, Rohan Khaunte, will lead the roadshow together with Sanjeev Ahuja IAS, Secretary Tourism; Pravimal Abhishek IAS, Director of Tourism, and the industry partners (sellers) which comprise registered tour operators, travel agents, hotels/resorts, airlines, and others.
Apart from its objective to ensure that Goa stands out as one of the best tourist destinations worldwide, the roadshow will also provide a platform for Goa to steer its tourism sector to greater heights.
The department also intends to position the state as a safe and all-around tourist destination by showcasing a wide range of ongoing tourism offerings such as offbeat, eco-tourism, sustainable, and hinterland tourism.
A major highlight will be the potential B2B meeting that Govt officials and sellers from Goa will hold with buyers from Europe that comprise industry experts and vendors from European markets.
The department will also focus on exhibiting the growing popularity of Goa’s Hinterland Tourism worldwide, such as Nature Hikes, Bike Rides, Heritage Trails, and Sightseeing Tours through the serene villages, forests, and waterfalls of Goa.
“These roadshows are important networking events that enable us to showcase the diverse culture and heritage of our state. Stakeholders from Goa’s tourism industry, as part of the roadshow, will obtain exclusive access to the businesses that will be visiting the multi-city event.” Rohan Khaunte, Minister for Tourism, IT & EC and Printing and Stationery, Goa, said,
