TRIDIB GHOSHBLTM was a fantastic initiative. It is extremely important that we have a B2B show because when people come and invest for two-three days, they really look at some tangible benefits to carry and then convert them into business. In two days, we met more than 20-25 top decision makers. I will be very happy if they can keep on doing this every year and look at getting more and more of qualified buyers.

GINNY KOHLIBLTM has nailed how business travel, MICE and weddings come together. An event like BLTM really makes a lot of sense in the market because a hotelier would want to position himself in MICE as well as in events. BLTM has come out at the right time as the wedding season is kicking in. The panel discussions were also very insightful and we were able to garner insights of how venues and destinations play a vital role in promotional activities.
