The Association of Domestic Tour Operators of India (ADTOI), in association with Punjab Tourism, recently organised a Fam for members to Amritsar.
ADTOI organised a three-day Fam to Amritsar for approximately 50 delegates, including members of the association. Delegates visited some of the city’s historically significant spots such as the war memorial, Partition Museum, Wagah Border, Ram Tirath, Golden Temple and Sadda Pind – a heritage resort.
PP Khanna, President, ADTOI, was pleased to see how exhilarated the members were, saying, “Punjab Tourism had drawn up an interesting itinerary that included places of significance which delegates were visiting for the very first time. Members were also praising the arrangements made by the tourism board, from transportation and stay to showcasing destinations in and around Amritsar. With this Fam, Punjab Tourism hopes to promote Amritsar as a destination where travellers could spend more than just a night.” Post the tour, members were convinced that the city had much more to offer.
Also present during the Fam was SS Dhillon, Director – Tourism, Government of Punjab, who met the delegates and discussed strategies that could help promote Punjab among tourists. In the opinion of Manmeet Singh, Chairman, ADTOI – North India, the trip was a remarkable success where Punjab Tourism got a chance to showcase new tourist products of Amritsar that had not been seen earlier by the travel fraternity.
