Kunming to be convention venue

Scheduled to be held from August 18-20, 2017, the 64th Convention & Exhibition of TAAI will be held in Kunming located in the Yunnan province. Registrations will open on July 5 and close on July 20.

The Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) has chosen the beautiful and picturesque city of China – Kunming – in the province of Yunnan as the venue for its 64th Annual Convention and the Indian Travel Congress.

Speaking about the reason behind this decision, Marzban Antia, Vice President, TAAI, says, “TAAI has chosen Kunming in the Yunnan Province for its annual convention as it will offer Indian travel agents a fantastic opportunity to do business with the travel trade in China, both inbound as well as outbound. The destination has a lot of facilities to offer as we saw during our recce there. One thing that stood out was the co-operation and pro-activeness of the Chinese tourism ministry and the trade officials there. This convention will be unique and will go a step further in developing the Indo-China relationship. While language does pose a problem, the tourism board has ensured that there will be sufficient English translators for our members during the convention.” Further about the venue, TAAI said that ‘discovery will be an important option’. Through the convention, TAAI offers its members an important opportunity to reinforce industry networking and create new business avenues.

The convention will be hosted by the Yunnan Government, People’s Republic of China; and the event will be coordinated by Mao Fa International Travel Services (MFITS) – a unit of Service Bureau of Ministry of Foreign Affairs, China. The exhibition as well as the inaugural dinner will be held at The Intercontinental Kunming. TAAI will roll out the registration forms soon. The registrations will open on July 5, 2017 and close by July 20, 2017.
