OTM Mumbai, 13-15 September 2022  + BLTM Delhi, 10-11 September 2022

As the leading travel trade show in the Asia-Pacific, the OTM Mumbai (13-15 September 2022) opens doors to the fast-growing outbound travel market that is expected to reach a record-breaking number of 28.5 million trips in 2025, with Mumbai and Delhi - the top two gateway cities - contributing to more than half of all the trips for leisure, business and MICE travel from India.

The grand reopening of travel that took place at OTM Mumbai 2022, saw over 800 exhibitors from 20 countries in one of the first trade show to take place in post-pandemic Asia. This establishes that travel and tourism from India is bouncing back in full vigour after two years of disruptions and that there is much to look forward to in 2022-2023 as the pent-up demand for travel is evidently here to stay.

The OTM is endorsed by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, which provides support for hosting overseas buyers at the show. OTM Mumbai 2022 was inaugurated by Dr Abdulla Mausoom, Tourism Minister of Maldives.

The show allows for meeting thousands of qualified buyers from travel trade, business and MICE sectors. Thus, for any country looking to establish or enhance their presence in this market, OTM remains the must-visit show in India. The OTM Mumbai September edition, being focused on international travel, provides an opportunity to meet and showcase products to the top outbound buyers of the travel trade industry. 

The OTM also caters to domestic tourism within India, with nearly every Indian State Tourism Board participating in huge pavilions. 29+ Indian States and Union Territories were represented in OTM 2022.

Taking place just before OTM Mumbai, BLTM Delhi (10-11 September 2022) is a show providing unprecedented access to the cream of buyers from the North Indian market. As India’s leading travel mart focused on Business+Leisure and MICE travel, it provides the advantage of hosted buyers, specifically chosen from Business, Leisure and MICE travel segments from all over India. In view of the lost opportunities in the last two years, this year any more participants are expected to be on board for the shows at one go, as both shows can be covered within a week's time in September 2022.

Further details about the two shows can be found in the OTM brochure and the BLTM Brochure.

Global Ayurveda Medical Travel Summit, 17-19 February 2021

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organising Global Ayurveda Medical Travel Summit scheduled to be held on a digital platform.  The objective is to explore the potential of Ayurveda in promotive, preventive and curative treatments both in India and abroad.

The key components of the Summit will include: Knowledge sessions, B2B Meetings and Exhibition.

The Indian Healthcare is one of the largest sectors in India, both in terms of revenue and employment. India is thus one of the most thriving healthcare tourism sectors in the world, known not only for providing curative treatment of diseases, but also preventive and promotive therapies offered by alternative medicine, such as Ayurveda.

Medical and Wellness Tourism has emerged as one of the rapidly growing service sectors in India.  Ayurveda is practiced today all over the world and forms an important part of wellness and wellness-related travel to India. Ayurveda in medical travel tends to be limited to massage and wellness treatments whilst the treatment for illnesses is often overlooked. It is therefore imperative that we bring to the fore the preventive, promotive and curative aspects of Ayurveda.
