Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI), at its managing committee meeting held at Mumbai, has decided Abu Dhabi as the venue for its 63rd Annual Convention and Exhibition, popularly known as the Indian Travel Congress. The dates for the convention are October 14-16, 2016. Sunil Kumar, president, TAAI informed that when a survey was done on 100 outbound passengers from India who visit Dubai, it was revealed that only about five per cent visit Abu Dhabi. One prime reason, he indicated, is the inadequate awareness on the growing strengths of Abu Dhabi, particularly in the areas of tourism and MICE.

TAAI is associating with Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) who have assured of their support to TAAI to hold this event in Abu Dhabi. Speaking about the convention, Kumar reflected that the convention would be rich in its content as well as in offering experiential take-home to the delegates. He said, “The content would focus on the importance of a fast changing ‘today’ and the urgent need for members to rise beyond the routine. Evenings will be classy, pre and post tours will be plenty and above all, the attendees will be offered abundant luxury of a very high order.”
Seven star hotel Emirates Palace is shortlisted to be an important venue for the convention. TAAI will be soon rolling out the registration opportunities.
The TAAI team also had meetings with several airlines in its pursuit to offer the delegates special fares. The convention will also focus on an exhibition that will offer exhibitors and vendors from the region the opportunity to connect with the Indian outbound industry and to promote India. TAAI will promote “Inbound into India” as an important subject at the convention to encourage the region to connect well with India.
