Hello everyone, today I’m going to BLTM which is a travel show. This is the first time I’m attending the show, so no expectations. Let’s see what it has to offer to me as a travel agent. We are at BLTM which is being held at The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel, Delhi. As soon as you enter the venue, you will find the registration counters. After registering you can enter the main hall of the show where travel trade from around the world is present and it depends on you how you can benefit from them. The scale of BLTM is smaller than SATTE. If you don’t know about SATTE, you can check out the video on my channel. The speciality of BLTM is not the scale but the concept. The concept of BLTM is very different from SATTE. As there was less crowd in BLTM, I got more time and attention from the sellers which were very beneficial for me. In BLTM first you have to download the SnapCard app where you will find a list of the exhibitors and the attendees participating in the show, and you can also fix meetings with them in advance. Once your meeting is fixed you can spend quality time with them to network. You will be provided with a kit when you register. The kit has a schedule – Meeting Diary – which shows the meetings you have scheduled for the two-days. There are two categories of BLTM visitors
Hosted Buyers and normal visitors. Hosted Buyers are provided accommodation in a 5-star hotel I got my accommodation in The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel, and this is the same hotel where the event was held. The benefit of keeping the venue in a 5-star hotel was it provided me with the opportunity to socialize with the suppliers and the buyers even after the event was over. In BTLM, they also refund you the registration fee and flight tickets if you do 20 meetings every day, which I think is a win-win situation for BLTM as well as the hosted buyer. Now let’s talk about my favourite part of BLTM. On the second day of BLTM, a Buyer-Seller meet was organized. The setup of the meet was in a big hall where the hosted buyers were provided with a table and chair and a placard with the company name of the hosted buyer. The suppliers who were present at BLTM as exhibitors were coming to meet us. BLTM provides the platform where the suppliers are coming to us directly to meet and interact with us. I found this idea is very innovative and my visit to BLTM was totally worth it. I can’t tell you if BLTM is a good show or not, you will decide that yourself.
