It is yet again the same time of the year when Mumbai will be seen with tourists flocking from around the world at OTM-Mumbai. TravelJingles Media is glad to be part as Media Partner, with this largest travel trade show in the Asia-Pacific region. On the two parameters – the number of participants and gross exhibition area rented by the organisers, OTM has gained an edge over ITB Asia and SATTE; the other two leading shows in the Asia Pacific region. It also attracts the largest number of international participants in India. OTM also had participants from a larger number of countries (45) when compared to SATTE (40), as per publicly available information that can be verified. Approximately a quarter of OTM’s buyers are from outside Mumbai, out of which half are from Delhi. This data shows that OTM is also effective in providing access to trade buyers and visitors from all over India. The upcoming edition of OTM 2018 will be organised from January 18-20, at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre. It is expected to maintain the lead in 2018 as well. The visitors, we get to see Turkey, Greece and Thailand the three biggest country pavilions, returning to OTM in 2018.

The Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) has planned for the first time a mega publicity exercise at OTM for promoting North-Eastern destinations. TravHQ has partnered with OTM to organise Travel Technology Track, with sessions on innovative travel tech solutions, panel discussions with industry thought-leaders and digital skill development workshops. Interestingly, India is ranked among one of the fastest emerging travel destinations in the world as Indians continue to take more than a billion domestic and 20 million international visits annually. Fuelling this growth, Mumbai serves as a gateway city to 60% of India’s outbound market, making it the largest hub of inbound and outbound, business, luxury, and MICE travel in India. This is the main reason behind the emergence of OTM as the largest travel trade show in the region.
The advent of online technologies has enabled the travel sector to further utilise its potentials. Keeping in mind the business prospects, an easy-to-use online meeting diary to fix appointment between buyers and sellers has been scheduled this year.
