TAFI Convention 2022 positive to receive excellent response from the industry

After a gap of four years, The Travel Agents Federation of India (TAFI) announces its Convention at Kuching in Sarawak, Malaysia this September from 20 – 23, 2022. The theme of the convention is BUILD BACK BETTER.

Elaborating on the theme, Ajay Prakash, President, TAFI said, “As we seek recovery post-COVID, it is vital that the tourism industry does not forget the lessons learnt from the pandemic. As one of the biggest global industries, the power of tourism to shape the world is phenomenal. It can be a powerful force for doing good, not only for the stakeholders but for the entire world. Build Back Better encapsulates the resolve to rebuild Tourism in a more responsible and sustainable manner.”

The Convention Committee is chaired by Seeraj Sabharwal & Jigar Dudakiya is the Deputy Chairman.

Commenting on the choice of destination, Singh said “Sarawak is a relatively unexplored destination for the Indian traveller. Sarawak is an excellent destination for family travel, honeymooners, MICE, weddings and the film Industry. TAFI has often organised conventions in unique and unusual locations to expand the portfolio of travel agents & tour operators of India.”

The Convention package will be inclusive of a 3 Nights Pre or Post Convention Tours to beautiful places within Malaysia.

Speaking on selecting Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) for the convention, Dudakiya said, “With its state of the art equipment & facilities, BCCK is the first International purpose-built Convention Centre in Kuching Sarawak, Malaysia. The
Convention Centre can host up to 5000 people with uninterrupted WIFI internet services for up to 8000 simultaneous users.

The TAFI Convention is supported by Tourism Malaysia, Sarawak Tourism Board, Business Events Sarawak, Malaysia Airlines, Malindo (now rechristened Batik) and Air Asia.

TAFI with a membership of more than 1400 tour operators and travel agents account for approximately 70% of all outbound travel from India. “There is palpable excitement among our members since a convention is happening after 4 years and TAFI conventions are always eagerly awaited. We expect an excellent turnout of delegates and speakers. Sarawak is at the forefront of responsible, sustainable eco-tourism and is the ideal destination to begin our journey to BUILD, BACK, BETTER,” concluded Prakash.
