PATA India Chapter and Ministry of Tourism had organized a Road Show from 18th - 25th June,2014 to United states of America covering  New York, Boston, Los Angeles & San Francisco. The Road Shows fulfilled the need for renewed information on incredible India as well as an interactive buyer seller meets in each city.

Their unflinching support towards coordinating excellent arrangements across USA was exemplary, without their active involvement the Road Shows could not have been a grand success.

Participating Buyers also enjoyed a bonanza of 24 air tickets to India backed by Holiday packages, distributed through a lucky draw. While the tickets were provided by the Ministry Of Tourism, the holiday packages were offer by Indian suppliers.
