Srinagar, Jan 8: In what is expected to go as a first step towards promoting conference tourism in Kashmir, the Indian Convention Promotion Bureau— national body for promotion of conventional tourism— will hold its next board meeting here in April-May.
Director SK International Convention Centre, Dr G N Qasba told Greater Kashmir that the Bureau, after great persuasion, has agreed to hold its next board meeting here in April-May.
Dr Qasba said on the invitation of the secretary, Union Ministry of Tourism last year, he had made a presentation on ‘JK as conventional tourism destination' in the Board of Directors meeting.
The secretary, according to Dr Qasba, had invited him after being impressed by the facilities at the state-of-art SKICC here.
“I presented the case of the SKICC as an ideal conventional venue in the country and apprised the meeting that the SKICC was actually conceived as a conventional destination at a time when there was limited scope for the tourism,” Dr Qasba told Greater Kashmir over phone from New Delhi.
He said he informed the meeting that SKICC offered best venue for it and “we are starting the video-conferencing facility from next year in the SKICC.”
Dr Qasba said the board of directors was impressed with the presentation and agreed to hold next meeting in Srinagar.
