Mumbai, April 4 (IBNS): After aggressive bidding by the Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO) and the Government of India, the U.S. Tour Operators’ Association (USTOA) finally returned to India after 15 long years for its annual Out of Country meeting.


The Taj Group co-hosted a grand silver-service sit-down dinner with a unique, especially crafted menu at Taj Palace, Delhi. In addition to the USTOA members and key Indian Travel Trade, the evening also saw Parvez Dewan – Secretary of Tourism, in attendance.

 Established in 1972, the USTOA consists of some of the important names in American travel and tourism and accounts for a sizeable portion of the tour operator market in North America.
