Offering a showcase of the golfing facilities in Srinagar. TAAI will be opening its convention with a press conference at The Royal Springs Golf Course on March 27, 2018. Sharing details of the same, Rajan Sehgal said, “The convention will be inaugurated with a press conference at the famed golf course. This will be followed by a golf tournament in which many corporates will be participating along with the delegates, travel trade as well as local golfers. In the evening at the inaugural gala dinner, we will be felicitating all the winners and golfers at a special awards ceremony.”

The government of J&K is supporting this tournament. Sehgal said, “This golf tournament is being organised on special request by the Chief Minister and Tourism Minister of J&K, with an aim to showcase golfing facilities in the state to the world. The state has two major golf courses. Srinagar is also popular for its Tulip Festival, which will be opening around the same time as the convention. Delegates will have a great time there with golf, skiing as well as abundant natural beauty.”

This plan focuses on three simple things— increasing our sales, maximising our revenues and reducing our expenses

Talking about the convention going inbound, he said, “We chose Srinagar so that it gets positive attention from around the world. There has been a lot of negative publicity about the state, despite 30 flights landing in Srinagar with 4000 passengers everyday. We want to make the destination tourism-friendly and project it as an iconic city for trade too. Over 500 delegates are expected to participate at the convention. We are inviting delegates from every part of India along with several travel writers who would write about the destination.”
