Exploring alternative sources for revenue & reinventing key to remaining relevant: MD MPSTDC

With Madhya Pradesh Tourism starting at huge loss due to the lockdown in force, Anay Dwivedi, MD, MP State Tourism Development Corporation (MPSTDC) believes they will have to look at alternate sources for revenue generation. “In the coming days people will travel for personal and necessary reasons. Currently, we have deployed and modified our vehicles to transport essential medical items, and our hotels have been converted into quarantine centres.” He was sharing his views at a panel discussion on Domestic Tourism organised by TAAI in association with TravelBiz Monitor. 

Sharing travel patterns, Dwivedi said that they see a healthy number of visitors from within the state and 37% from Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Chhatisgarh. “In order to give adequate importance to the health of tourists, we will train our staff. Moreover, we are creating a website and bringing all the service providers of the state under one umbrella. This will allow seamless booking on our website with hotels and tour operators.”

He went on to say, “Moreover, I believe we will bounce back faster since 82% tourists to the state are locals and from the neighbouring states. Wildlife tourism won’t be affected since the next season begins in October. Currently, the time is to reinvent our offerings to stay relevant in the business.”
