Corporation Of Gujarat Limited holds special road show in Madhya Pradesh to
promote tourism.





August 26, Indore: On
Saturday, a motley crowd watched in awe as a presentation unfolded before it portraying
the rich culture and heritage of the picturesque state of Gujarat. The presentation
was a part of a special Road Show organised by the Tourism Corporation of
Gujarat Limited (TCGL) at Indore in Madhya Pradesh
to promote Gujarat as a splendid
tourist destination.
The
audience mainly consisted of travel agents from Madhya Pradesh with whom TCGL
is looking at forging ties to showcase the best of Gujarat to the people of
Madhya Pradesh. Shri. Jenu Devan, Managing Director and Commissioner of
Tourism, Tourism Corporation of Gujarat Limited

took the travel agents through the presentation that elucidated the eclectic
offerings of Gujarat in terms of its culture, traditions, music, tourist spots,
its treasure trove of artefacts and handicrafts and much more. This is the
first time that Gujarat is visiting Madhya Pradesh and is looking at building a
bond with the latter by inviting its people over to visit and experience the state’s
inimitable tourism. The idea of inviting travel agents for the Road Show was to
join hands with them and leverage the relations to carry out diverse exchanges
between the two states.
Talking about the unique Road
Show, Shri Devan
,
said
, “We are extremely happy to be
in Madhya Pradesh and connect with the people here. This is the first time
Gujarat is visiting MP but we are hoping that we will be able to build long
lasting relations between the two states. I would like to invite the people
from Madhya Pradesh to witness and enjoy the beauty of Gujarat, its cuisines,
its art and culture, tourist spots, its many fairs and festivals and everything
else that the state has to offer. This Road Show is mainly to reach out to
travel agents here and work out opportunities to promote Gujarat tourism.
Together we can build some excellent exchange between the two states.”
