The show, focused exclusively on experiential travel, will be held on April 8-9, 2017, in New Delhi and will gather a diverse bunch of professionals from all over.
Experiential travel has been on an upswing and the trend continues to grow as travellers evolve with each journey. Adjudged as the ‘new way to travel’, experiential travellers don’t just visit the destination, they experience it. Travel suppliers have been re-strategising to align their products in accordance to the transition, offering more personalised itineraries, accommodation options and even destinations depending on what they have to offer.
Following the success of last year’s Travel Shows, Buzz Media and Pacific Leisure Group (PLG) will be organising the Experiential – Beyond Luxury edition in New Delhi. This year, the organisers have dedicated two days for the segment, indicating the increasing demand from the industry to meet the requirements of the newage traveller. The last edition was held in conjunction with Travel Show Business which focused on MICE. The exclusive event aims to bring a select group of sellers and buyers together to either grow or explore new business opportunities, and provides a forum to network and get the know-how of the industry.
Sarika Rawal Bhambhani, General Manager, DDP Exhibitions, gives more details on the closeddoor show and says, “In the coming edition, 90 per cent of buyers are from out of town, while 50 per cent sellers are from different countries. They will get explained and discover products during a 10-minute speed meeting that ensures they get down to the main subject – business. Especially since time is a scarce commodity these days, the speed networking session allows the right amount of information exchange.” She adds that the two day period will witness around 900 meetings and the attendance of around 150 handpicked guests.
