Korea Tourism Organization Concludes Exclusive Webinar
Korea Tourism Organization (KTO), in association with TravTalk, has successfully concluded its exclusive webinar for the Nepal travel trade on August 19, 2020. This first-ever webinar by KTO for the Nepal trade highlighted the unbelievably beautiful regions of Korea that would be ideal for travelers.
The webinar was led by Young Geul Choi, Dy. Director and Sandeep Dutta, Marketing Manager from the Korea Tourism Organization. Sandeep Dutta, Marketing Manager, Korea Tourism Organization New Delhi Office, and Basant Raj Mishra, Founder Board Member of Nepal Tourism Board, Board of Director of Nepal Convention Centre, Former Board Member of Nepal Airlines Corporation, Chairman of Nepal PATA Chapter, Chairman of Nepal Association of Tour Operators and Advisor of Nepal Association of Tour and Travel Association, were the speakers of the webinar.
Addressing attendees, Choi said, “As the world starts to get back to normal and international travel resumes slowly, it is the best time to update the Nepal travel industry about the latest tourism products of South Korea. Once travel begins, the Nepal travel trade will be able to recommend Korea to clients with confidence. I also look forward to working with the Nepal Tourism Board. In the past, KTO has participated in the Himalayan Travel Mart in Kathmandu, where it received a good response. I hope that once regular flights resume, we can organize a KTO roadshow where Korea suppliers can directly meet Nepal travel agents.”
Sandeep Dutta, Marketing Manager said that there have been MICE groups and FIT travelers to South Korea in the past and that the future, too, looks good. Sharing a tip for agents getting groups to South Korea, he added, “There is a very interesting way in which South Korea promotes its traditional dress – the Hanbok – in tourism. If you are wearing the Korean traditional costume, which is easily available to rent all over the city and at tourist sites, you do not have to pay for the entrance ticket when visiting a monument or palace.”
