Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) launched their new magazine NAMASTAAI in New Delhi, on June 6, 2016. The evening saw members of the association come together to be a part of this new initiative. The magazine was unveiled by chief guest Dr Mahesh Sharma, minister of state, tourism and culture, Government of India. Addressing the gathering, Sunil Kumar, president, TAAI, said, “I am thrilled to have Dr Mahesh Sharma with us this evening. I am also honoured to have two of our past presidents, Inder Sharma and Balbir Mayal with us. This magazine is a unique initiative that brings together information from our agents and professionals in the industry. It will be distributed to all the members and industry players to educate them what TAAI is truly about.”

Dr Sharma said, “I compliment the team of TAAI for envisioning this great initiative in such a short period of time. We need a change in perception of the tourism industry. A lot has changed in the past few years, but now we need to be more aggressive. The showcase of our country in a proper manner is much needed and I think initiatives like this magazine will help us achieve that. I wish them luck and hope that the information provided here helps travellers as well as the agents in the industry to take tourism forward.”

The launch of NAMASTAAI is a key milestone for TAAI, which is celebrating its 65th anniversary. Kumar added, “The inaugural issue is a 84-page magazine that goes out to all our respective members and industry players. The cover story ‘Why is India Incredible’ talks about the rich heritage and culture of our country. Through this magazine, we look forward to express that TAAI is a unique body that means MICE, tourism, technology, aviation and much more.”

After going through the magazine, Inder Sharma, past president, TAAI (1978-1979), said, “The new league of TAAI has been more active and this is another initiative that brings forward their involvement with the industry. I look forward to more issues.”
