South India Hotels & Restaurants Association (SIHRA) and South Kerala Hoteliers Forum (SKHF) have got together to host South India’s first tourism expo – South India Tourism Expo (SITE) – in Thiruvananthapuram. The maiden SITE event will be held between May 7 and 10 at Uday Palace Convention Centre in the city where tourism stakeholders from the Southern States of India will exhibit their products and services.  

The exhibition brochure of the SITE was released by Prahalad Singh Patel, Minister of State with Independent Charge of Culture & Tourism, Government of India in Delhi recently.  

Organised with the support of Kerala Tourism Department and Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC), Tourism Boards of other South Indian states will also participate and support the event, said Siji Nair, Chairman of the Media Committee of the Expo. 

The event organisers are expecting around 300 exhibitors at the maiden show comprising tourism boards, Destination Management Companies (DMCs), Tour Operators, Hotels and Restaurants and other Service providers. “We are expecting 500 domestic buyers and 200 international buyers mainly drawn from the Middle East and Europe,” Nair said.

Envisaged as an annual platform to promote tourism of Southern States, Nair said that SITE will travel to other cities and states of South India in coming years.
