23/24 FEBRUARY, 2018
PULLMAN HOTEL, AEROCITY, NEW DELHI
BITB’s next edition will be on 23/24 February, 2018 in New Delhi at Aerocity. It will continue its emphasis on senior leadership, sharp focus on tourism, and serious networking. It will focus on conclaves, workshops, presentations, networking, awards and select B2B. It will bring together an expected 2,000 delegates from across industry verticals for a meaningful interface between travel and tourism’s major constituents. It will focus equally on Bharat as well as the world around us, creating a dialogue that is truly both Indian and international. It presents the big picture for the industry, helps it connect with the larger stakeholders of India’s heritage, the essential tourism product, big changes in travel and infrastructure, in terms of highways, railways and airports and airlines, and capacity augmentation therein. It will promote niche tourism; in this edition the focus will be on golf tourism. BITB will also honour some of the lesser known faces that have made a major impact in travel and tourism in our times. For most effective and productive networking, especially among senior professionals, you don’t need to queue up at booths but sit across business lounges. The industry has moved beyond trading in room nights and is looking ahead towards the Big Picture!
Expect a galaxy of 100+ speakers over two days, in the plenary session, business and parallel sessions, and series of panel discussions.
