Around 38 international travel bloggers, influencers and media delegates will also be part of the event.

Speaking at the press conference, Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) CEO Deepak Raj Joshi said that the Himalayan Travel Mart set a good example of public-private partnership in the last two years with its success and effectiveness in the last two years.

The event will also become the launching pad for Visit Nepal 2020, said Suresh Singh Budal, CEO of the Pacific Asia Travel Association.

“The event will be helpful in networking and making strategies to welcome 2 million tourists during Visit Nepal 2020,” he said.

The organisers are planning to hold an international media briefing session during the conference among hundreds of national and international media, bloggers and influencers targeting the Visit Nepal Year 2020 campaign.
