tas

TheTravel Allied Show (TAS)is another freshly-introduced vertical startingFebruary 2019. Created on the lines of other Travel Show events, TAS is also atable-top platform, where exhibitorscan meet hosted buyers in pre-fixed meeting slots.

The travel industry, in the last couple of years, has added many allied services to its portfolio of offerings as the market demand for consolidation of travel-related needs expanded. Hence, exhibitors in this vertical would ideally be vendors operating in the travel, hospitality and event segments, providing any kind of allied service that may includevisa facilitation, foreign exchange (including international foreign exchange cards), international SIM cards, overseas travel cards, transport service (including self-drive), visitor attraction tickets, breweries, golfing tours, camping services, bespoke toursto unusual destinations, homestays, food and beverage experiences, travel luggage providers, event memorabilia, App providers, as well as hostess/emcee/artist hire.

Most Tier-I, and practically all Tier-II and III, city agents and tour operators are single points of contact for the travel needs of their clients and thus, this vertical is of immense importance as it acts as a platform that concentrates primarily on this segment.

Visualise the significance of being part of this event, making useful contacts, establishing partnerships,attaining a first-mover advantage, or simply, increasing your slice of the pie in a particular marketplace!

To garner a market share in this sunrise segment, TAS offers a B2B platform like no other in the Indian market,forexhibitors to meet, network, influence, form alliances, and work towards closing business with vendors of their choice.
