The  Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) has announced its 65th annual convention in the Kunming city of Yunnan province of China from November 27-29. In association with the Yunnan Provincial Tourism Development Commission (YPTDC), the TAAI Convention in China is set to be at InterContinental Kunming. After signing a memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with YPTDC to conduct the convention, Sunil Kumar, President, TAAI, said, “China has a lot to offer in terms of tourism since the outbound numbers from India to China are quite high. The convention is an initiative to promote stronger tourism prospects in Yunnan as we have been working towards a stronger connect with China.”

The theme of the convention will revolve around strengthening friendship and tourism relationship with China. Talking about promoting stronger development of tourism ties between India and China, Kumar said, “Certain parts of China are not experienced by Indian travellers. TAAI and YPTDC are dedicated to promote tourism and help the industry in both the countries.”

Kumar believes that this year’s convention in China should be an exclusive event. “We are expecting around 450-500 delegates at the convention and looking to make it an exclusive event,” he added. TAAI and YPTDC have also planned pre and post Fam tours around Kunming in locations like Dali City, Shangri-La and Lijiang, among others.

Elated over TAAI’s Convention in China, Shi Lin, Vice Director General, YPTDC, said that a huge potential drawn from this convention can benefit the industry. ““Kunming is a beautiful and green city in the Yunnan Province. Moreover, it is well-connected with major cities of India. The TAAI Convention will help boost bilateral ties and tourism prospects in both the countries” she concluded.
