The Enterprising Travel Agents Association (ETAA), in association with Qatar Tourism, recently held a knowledge session at The Claridges, New Delhi, to educate and inform its members about the new offerings in leisure, weddings, and M!CE segments that Destination Qatar has for Indians.

The session, titled ‘Explore Qatar’, highlighted that the destination is a perfect amalgamation of tradition and modernity, and tourism is one of the five priority sectors pivotal for diversifying Qatar’s economy.

Deepika Khanna, General Secretary, North India Chapter, ETAA and CEO & Founder, Anchor Destination, said, “ETAA has pulled out an event with Qatar Tourism, where a knowledge session and product presentation was conducted. ETAA members attended this ‘Explore Qatar’ workshop, which would allow them to pitch the destination to the right target audience and clients.”

Saurabh Tuteja, Chairman, North India, ETAA and Director, Ujjwal Creations, said, “Qatar is a fairly new destination for Indian tourists, and it is time to start educating travel agents and tourists about the destination.” He added, “Qatar is just six hours away via flight, and hence the air connectivity is excellent and India’s proximity to Qatar is not an issue.”

Talking about the visa process, he said, “It creates an excellent opportunity for Indians to explore Qatar as the destination is providing visa on arrivals.”

Khanna said, “Currently, Qatar has seen huge upsurge with respect to Indian arrivals. I think in the last three years, Qatar has become at least 3 to 5-night destination. It has top-notch hotels, luxurious amenities and infrastructure. I believe that this is the best time to explore Qatar.”
