IATO calls off 37th annual convention scheduled to be held in Bangalore in September

The Association is now seeking to make arrangements to hold the convention in December 2022

Rajiv Mehra, President, Indian Association of Tour Operators, has announced that the 37th IATO Annual Convention, which was scheduled to be held in Bangalore from September 15 to 18, 2022, has been called off due to unavoidable circumstances arising out of the withdrawal of support by the Karnataka Tourism, which had earlier given written confirmation for hosting the convention in Bangalore.

Mehra informed that all arrangements made for the convention in Bangalore have been cancelled due to this development which are beyond the association’s control. IATO had booked 400 rooms at Hotel Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn and the convention hall but had to release all bookings due to withdrawal of support from Karnataka Tourism in spite of announcing the same at the inaugural function of IATO 36th Annual Convention in Gandhinagar, Gujarat in the presence of Chief Minister of Gujarat and over 750 delegates.

IATO is now exploring for an alternative city/state for the having the convention, which would now likely be held in the month of December 2022.
