This is the place where the entire tourism fraternity comes under one umbrella and a lot of actual business happens. Also through SATTE, newer and hitherto unknown destinations get a lot of focus and this is very important for tourism to grow.”

According to PP Khanna, President, Association of Domestic Tour Operators of India (ADTOI), “SATTE is the biggest travel trade exhibition in South Asia. It brings international exhibitors and buyers who have travel business in India under one roof. Not only does it give fresh exposure to established players, it also offers a plethora of opportunities to new entrants. It is a great networking platform where participants get to generate a lot of business leads and transact business.”  -.

Lauding the SATTE platform, Biji Eapen, President, IATA Agents Association of India, opined, “We are sure that SATTE 2017 will follow its tradition and the newer features will only help SATTE establish new growth paths for the Indian Travel and Tourism Industry. SATTE 2016 — the 23rd edition of SATTE – was labeled ‘Unprecedented and Bold’, and had also proved to be a spectacular event with around 860 exhibitors across 35 countries, 30 international & 28 domestic Tourism Boards. The key sessions and panel discussions had covered a wide range of subjects and relevant topics that brought together industry stakeholders on a single platform allowing a valuable exchange of ideas.”

Speaking on the upcoming 24th edition of SATTE and its latest developments, Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, “SATTE has now become an institution and has evolved as a truly global exhibition in this part of the world. In spite of worldwide uncertainties this year, it stands taller than ever before. SATTE has an expected turnout of over 21,000 qualified travel professionals – each visiting the expo with a high expectancy from the event and its innovative, solution-driven features like the knowledge seminars, product launches and a grand Awards Night that is set to celebrate excellence and innovation within the industry.”

One of the key features of SATTE 2017 will be the conference programme scheduled for February 15 and 16 that promises industry discussions and sharing of new insights pertaining to the sector and industry best practices. Additionally, key stakeholders are looking forward to the six intensive panel discussions that SATTE is also set to host this year.

As a pre-cursor to the expo, UBM India will be hosting the SATTE Awards 2017 for the first time. Slated for the evening of February 14, the awards is an endeavour to recognize and celebrate the excellence, achievements and innovations of key players in the Travel and Tourism industry. It will be based on transparent, authentic and genuine parameters, a philosophy which is imbibed in the values of SATTE. Networking opportunities, presentations and other features will add substance and style to the evening. The 19 award categories will cover various segments of the travel and tourism industry including airlines, cruise, tour operators, hotels, destinations, online travel portals, to name just a few.
