TAAI organises Knowledge Conclaves for members across India


Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) conducted its Knowledge Conclaves in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Indore recently. The Managing Committee and Chairpersons on TAAI have come up with this most unique event which was based on geographical locations and members of respective TAAI Regions and Chapters were invited to attend the conclaves to prepare themselves for a fast-changing tomorrow. Through the Knowledge Conclaves, the members shared information and learned from the recent trends and updates.

Around 100+ agency representatives in each location participated in this extremely purposeful and comprehensive learning initiative from TAAI.

The conclaves key focus was ‘Unlearn – Update – Upgrade’. Towards this, eminent industry leaders drove the interactive sessions. They presented the fast-unfolding bigger picture of the industry and complexities and the opportunities it offers. They were emphatic if one has to optimise this growing scenario, there is a need to tweak business models to address the changes. The importance of remaining relevant in the marketplace to gain sustainability and growth as business models get fine-tuned was emphasised again and again.

Speaking exclusively with Travel News Digest, Sunil Kumar, President, Travel Agents Association of India said, “I am very happy to say that the response received in the conclaves has been overwhelming. We held the conclaves in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Indore and have been a big success. In Kolkata, we received around 60+ agents to attend which we were anticipating. Eastern region as a market is very large and it will continue to grow.”

It certainly has been an outstanding initiative. For those mid-size and smaller agencies, this provoked new thoughts and gave them deep insights into the latest developments in the industry.
