The recommendations made by participants and delegates during the expo will be noted and incorporated in the White Paper.
“This is the first White Paper our association is going to present from an exhibition. We will also lay emphasis on Maharashtra, this being the state’s Golden Jubilee year. Maharashtra government has also confirmed its participation at the expo as the host state,” said Iqbal Mulla, Hon. Treasurer and Chairman – Marts and Special Events, TAAI.
In addition, the association will also host TAAI Travel Awards during the 2 -day expo besides organizing a buyer-seller meeting on the same day.
