Argentina witnesses 25 per cent increase in tourist arrivals from India
The recent appointment of Knack Marketing as the official representative of the National Institute for the Promotion of Tourism of Argentina (INPROTUR) in India is in response to the growing interest of Indian travellers in the South American destination. “This year from January to August there has been 25 per cent growth in tourist arrivals from India. One of the most important reason is that we have good connection with India through different airlines. Then our consulate in Mumbai and Embassy in Delhi have been working to help us,” said Leonardo Boto, chairman, INPROTUR, adding that they are looking at similar growth in the future as well.
“Argentina is just entering the Indian market and we are quite excited to see the interest. There are a number of inquiries for Argentina and we hope we can convert the same. The Indian traveller is looking for new bold experiences. The experience that Argentina will offer to the travellers is completely unique and exclusive. Our focus will be on the experimental and experienced traveller from the FIT and MICE segments,” added Boto.
Being an emerging destination for India outbound, one of the key focus areas will be educating the travel trade. “The focus of the training will be to introduce and educate the trade on the destination. We will commence with targeting agents in Mumbai and Delhi and will gradually move to Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Chennai,” said Boto.
