Taking a cue from Rajasthan, the tourism department has decided to organise Odisha Travel Bazaar here in October to market the state’s tourism destinations before tour operators from the country and abroad.
Department sources said the business-to-business event will continue for three days from October 12. The government expects the footfall of at least 200 delegates, including tour operators and hoteliers from the country and overseas nations during the proposed maiden programme.
“We will organise Odisha Travel Bazaar in collaboration with Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI). We will give a scope to tour operators of our state to showcase our tourism potential to buyers (tour operators from other states and abroad). The FICCI already conducted Great Indian Travel Bazaar in Rajasthan with great success,” tourism deputy director Utpal Kumar Pati told TOI. Sources said the department would spend nearly Rs 1.5 crore on the event.
