Macau roadshow to attract Indian travellers, trade partners
Kolkata, Mar 8 (PTI) The Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) in India today held a roadshow here to serve as a promotional platform for travel and trade partners and to create awareness about the tourist destinations in the former Portuguese colony.
The roadshow giving an overview of the booming tourism industry in Macau brought together leading travel and tour operators of Kolkata to interact with MGTO representatives in B2B sessions.
This year, besides promoting its heritage sites and other attractions, Macau will continue to focus its efforts on business tourism initiatives.
MGTO (India) has been expanding its tourism products to diversify its source market profile, and will leverage its recently launched Wedding Incentive Scheme and Student Excursion Incentive Scheme to boost visitor arrival figures.
Macau tourism sources said Macau posted about 1,51,000 visitor arrivals from India in 2012.
"It is a direct result of Macau (India)''s marketing and promotional efforts for the Indian market. In 2013, we expect to capture a bigger market share of outbound tourists from key tourist markets like Kolkata," they said.
They said that Macau (India) would leverage Macau''s unique blend of cultural heritage, competitiveness and its cost effective offerings to encourage more visitors and organisations to choose Macau as a destination for wedding tourism.
India's indigenously designed fighter aircraft, Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas, is all set to get the Initial Operational Clearance (IOC II), which would pave the way for its induction into the Indian Air Force.
