The event you desi wanderlusts have been waiting for: International Travel Expo

International Travel Expo is coming to town, my fellow Bangloreans! You can thank the Karnataka government for this development. The expo will be held between February 28 and March 2 this year. They say it’s the largest business-to-business event that will feature 400 foreign travel delegates from almost 25 countries. The event will be held at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre.


For those who don’t know what a travel expo is, you’ve got to experience it first, especially people who have been planning a long holiday. Travel expos have hundreds of tourism companies coming together in a crowded venue and they throw attractive travel plans. These are mostly cheap and come with a lot of complimentary goodies.

You get dirt cheap flights, tours on discounts, attractive cruise deals, rail journeys, road trip stuff, and souvenirs from famous places. I remember 3 years back, at a local travel expo, I bought a package of 5 days, 6 nights at Rome, Venice, and Florence. With that, came a free offer to eat at some of the famous restaurants with 60% off (my memory is hazy, need to screen for Alzheimer’s lol).

This three-day event will have more than 1,000 delegates from all around the world. The place will be high on globalization and the bonding of many like-minded wanderlusts. Hope I find some interesting people to share my travel experience, maybe share numbers.

Karnataka International Travel Expo will have a special focus on Karnataka’s tourism. This state does have some awesome places to visit, like Bandipur National Park, Lal Bagh, Coorg, Chikmagalur, Hampi, Mysore Palace, etc. I suggest you visit BIEC. You can easily grab the metro and get down at Nagasandra. The venue is just 2 kms away from the metro stop.
