New Delhi: In order to promote “Delhi as a destination”, the state government is considering the idea of organizing tourism “markets” and road shows in other major cities of the country.
Although the national capital is the gateway to the country with the largest number of international arrivals, most visitors spend a short time in the city before heading to other tourist destinations. The city has a long history and a rich cultural heritage that the government would like to promote even more.
Delhi Tourism and Transport Development Corporation, Ltd. (DTTDC), set up by the Delhi government to promote tourism in and around the city, organizes major fairs and festivals in cooperation with the state government and the Centre. DTTDC i now plans to make a group of well-known event management companies for its various events.
In addition to events, these companies are also expected to set up “tourist showcases” and road shows on behalf of DTTDC, in addition to setting up stalls in pavilions on its behalf for various national and international tourism fairs.
As part of the evaluation of their submissions, DTTDC will solicit presentations from event companies. This will include showcasing innovative ideas in the form of events, festivals, roadshows, etc. for promoting Delhi as a destination.
DTTDC is also looking for new and unique ideas to promote its various facilities such as Dilli Haats at INA, Pitampura and Janakpuri, Garden of Five Senses and Guru Teg Bahadur Memorial.
The proposal document also mentions that the brief scope of work includes holding roadshows in major cities across the country, including Mumbai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Surat and even Delhi itself.
