With India’s visitor export earnings forecast to reach US $50 billion by 2028, SATTE 2024 is the right platform to support in achieving the set of goals of Indian tourism.

Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, said, the travel and tourism industry in India witnessed a milestone year in 2023, experiencing remarkable growth and reaching approximately INR 16.5 trillion, thereby highlighting its pivotal role in the nation’s economy.

SATTE has consistently been supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, Indian and International Tourism Boards, Global travel trade bodies, airlines, hotels, wellness resorts, cruises, theme parks, cinema locales, corporate travel, investors and wedding planners amongst others.

SATTE 2024 introduces “ATITHI” an exclusive Reverse Buyer-Seller Meet, a pioneering initiative by Services Export Promotion Council (SEPC), with the support of Ministry of Commerce & Industries.

Aimed at boosting inbound tourism, SEPC, in association with SATTE, is mobilizing the participation of around 250 international buyers from more than 50 countries to enhance business opportunities for stakeholders from Indian Tourism Industry from across India.  The SEPC@SATTE initiative comes at the most opportune moment to make India a most sought-after travel destination in the world, and to ultimately accomplish Vision@2047.

Notably, Mudras said, there was a significant increase in travel frequency among Indians, including for MICE tourism, with a growing interest observed in both popular, lesser-known, and spiritual destinations. This trend presents an opportunity for destination diversification and addresses concerns regarding over-tourism.
