Industry platform Indian Association of Travel and Tourism Experts (IATTE) launched online

The Indian Association of Travel and Tourism Experts (IATTE) has been launched online. The foundation for IATTE was laid by Naveen Manchanda, and convinced Subhash Verma to join IATTE as the National Advisor. 

Manchanda is the Founder of Tour Passion having an experience of 25 years, and Verma has an experience of 45 years in the travel trade. He has held various key positions among various Indian travel associations as well as Lufthansa.  

It all started over random social media exchanges between Manchanda and Veena Robinson where the idea of IATTE germinated. Once it became more than an idea followed by synergy, Manchanda shared the idea of bringing the various verticals of the Indian Ttavel Industry together with his select friends from the trade.  The online discussions commenced on March 21. The  discussions happened between – Naveen Manchanda, Veena Robinson, Subhash Verma, Jatin Mehta, Gaurav Khandelwal, Aanal Singh & Nischay Manchanda. Post the brainstorming, the platform started to take shape. They all agreed to the concept and IATTE was born. 

The idea came from the fact that Indian tourism professionals felt helpless due to the current situation and felt the burning need of a body which brings all the different Tourism verticals together. They all understood the need of responsible and sustainable Tourism.

The meetings started online and the number of meetings which took place till date is 91. All the meetings happened online, so no physical meeting ever happened. New Committee members were added and the total managing Committee members are now approximately 20 and growing. 
For the first financial year 2020 – 2021, no fee is applicable for new memberships. Within a span of few days many members have joined.
