Detailed action plan prepared to project Uttar Pradesh as ‘Most Favourite Tourist Destination’

In a bid to position Uttar Pradesh as a ‘premier global tourist destination,’ Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath‘s government is set to showcase ‘Brand UP‘ and ‘Destination UP‘ at 12 major international trade fairs and travel expos.

According to Chief Minister Yogi’s vision, a detailed action plan has been prepared to project Uttar Pradesh as ‘Brand UP‘ and as the ‘Most Favourite Tourist Destination‘ nationally and internationally. The master plan focuses primarily on the significant role of international trade shows, travel fairs, and expos in achieving this objective.

“The extensive promotion strategy involves utilising various channels, including organising roadshows and widespread campaigns, with the overarching goal of elevating the state’s visibility on the global tourism stage,” the Chief Minister’s office said in a press release.

Among them, Japan, Israel, China, America, France, Singapore, Britain, Australia, Germany, Israel, Russia and the UAE are prominent. Simultaneously, a detailed plan has been devised to highlight Uttar Pradesh as a tourist hotspot during various events in approximately 50 cities across 28 countries, including India.

The Uttar Pradesh Tourism Department has initiated actions on these plans, with ongoing efforts to engage agencies for international brand building, marketing, publicity, and operations, with a focus on organising national and international roadshows.

“The international events that will be targeted through this process include ITB Asia (Singapore), IFTM Top Resa Paris (France), JATA Tokyo (Japan), WTM London (UK), USTOA, FITUR Madrid (Spain), AIME Melbourne ( Australia), IMTM Tel Aviv (Israel), MITT Moscow (Russia), ATM Dubai (UAE), and COTTM Beijing (China). The execution involves organising promotional and brand development campaigns at all selected international locations, along with coordination with Indian embassies to ensure the success of the initiative,” the press release added.

As per the action plan, international roadshows are scheduled for cities like London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow in Britain; Madrid, Bilbao, and Barcelona in Spain; Rome and Milan in Italy; and Berlin, Munich, and Frankfurt in Germany. Similarly, roadshows will be held and stalls set up at exhibitions to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, Oslo in Norway, Stockholm in Sweden, Paris in France, The Hague in the Netherlands and Helsinki in Finland.
