According to Nikita Rawtani, founder, TravelGyaan and VTM, says, “TravelGyaan has been in Virtual Space for over Six years. We understand the technology and we have successfully conducted Virtual Events, Virtual Roadshows and webinars for many tourism boards. We are on a mission with a cause and we truly believe that participation in VTM will give the sellers a wonderful opportunity to meet, re-connect and network with the buyers.
The Expo will witness targeted and qualified Buyers from across India in different segments such as Outbound, Inbound & Domestic Tour Operators, MICE, Wedding Planners and the likes. Last year, VTM2020 Expo witnessed an attendance of 1000+ Travel Trade attendees in 2 days with quality buyers.” She further adds that the expo also has some noticeable features, namely, “The virtual Expo platform will enable Interactive video meetings between buyers and sellers in the Exhibit Hall, Networking Sessions in the Break-out zone, Press Mileage in the Media Zone and Power-packed LIVE sessions in the Knowledge Centre. It also has features such as pre-registrations and pre-scheduled meetings between buyers and sellers.” They feel, though in-person meetings have its power and networking strength, the Covid world has taught us the vitality of virtual space. Hence, a combination of offline as well as online meetings and exhibitions are here to stay, namely the hybrid model.
