The first time that Bengal Travel Mart was held and nearly 100 noted tour operators from 12 states in India and five foreign countries had participated. This event was part of the state government’s relentless drive & initiative to take tourism in Bengal to a new height. Time constrain was our major harbinger, yet the able support of members and officials and staff of West Bengal Tourism Department and North Bengal Development Department made the journey easy for us by their whole hearted support and contribution. Various associations and well-wishers assisted us in establishing tourism event of National stature in Siliguri.
The five foreign countries from where tour operators were there to attend the Bengal Travel Mart 2016 includes Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Russia and Slovakia.
