ITB will host its first travel trade show in India this year.
The new co-branded show, Bharat International Tourism Bazaar (BITB), will take place at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi from 3-6 October 2016, and is expected to be attended by more than 12,000 delegates.
According to the organisers, BITB will “bring new streams of business, such as online and technology in travel, weddings, MICE, Luxury, and other niche segments, with corresponding buyers”.
“These are the segments that are presently driving Indian travel and tourism. Traditional segments will also bring exhibitors and these would include cities and states, destinations, airlines and airports and hospitality. Big tickets partners will host strong accompanying conferences that will bring some of the finest thought leaders in these businesses,” ITB added in a statement.
BITB will take place less than three weeks prior to ITB Asia 2016, which will be held in Singapore from 19-21 October.
