India, having a huge number of outbound tourists is a major potential market for Nepal. Having the advantage of being next door neighbours with cultural proximity / easy travel access to both the countries, the prospect of travel between the countries remains very high. TTF considered to be one of the major tourism fairs of India, was an ideal platform for consumers, buyers and sellers.A total of 160 participants from overall India and abroad, including representations from 16 Indian states and 10 countries showcasing their tourism products and services participated in the three day fair. While Friday and part of Saturday was reserved for travel trade visitors, Saturday afternoon the show was opened for all to facilitiate weekend travel shopping.
