In keeping with its annual promise of providing the industry with the best of travel and tourism, and mapping the latest trends in the sector, SATTE’s all new agenda for 2014 includes the SATTE India 2014 Conference, whose focus will be ‘Building partnerships in tourism’.
Keeping in mind the business-critical requirements of the industry, the conference will also focus on concurrent subjects that are highly relevant to all the attendees. The SATTE conference agenda will analyse trends, bottlenecks and future opportunities for the tourism industry in India.
In the travel and tourism sector, partnerships amongst the government, corporate and different tourism verticals are very important. The first panel discussion, ‘Inventing new approaches to forge a stronger partnership within the industry’ will touch upon understanding the changing market dynamics and developing a PPP model to create a holistic atmosphere that enhances profitability of the tourism Industry in India.
The SATTE conference will also critically evaluate the concepts of Ecotourism and Responsible Tourism in its panel discussion on ‘Incorporating global best practices to make India a responsible and sustainable tourism destination’. Tourism takes place in the destination where tourists mix and interact with those who live and work there. The panel discussion will discuss how tourism can help the sustainable development of urban and rural areas and communities.

The discussion will highlight trends, challenges and future opportunities for hospitality and tourism in India.
