OTOAI has been formed with the sole mission of bridging the gap between the stakeholders, such as International Tourism Boards, DMCs, etc. and the Travel Agents selling outbound, so that the two can work in harmony towards the common goal of increasing Outbound from India. The Association aims to foster an environment of collaboration with various stakeholders through its ideology of collective ambition. All members of the association are in serious business of selling outbound and any educational insight or lucrative deal that can help them boost their business is an added bonus. The association here plays a key role in bringing the two together for the growth of the outbound industry in India.
The Outbound Travel Industry in India is not only more competitive, but it is increasingly becoming recognised for providing good jobs, business profits, government revenue, entrepreneurial opportunities and an unprecedented quality of life for the residents of its country. The industry is strong, equipped and on a profitable path today because the Outbound Tour Operators Association of India (OTOAI) has been its catalyst for change. The Association has been able to connect the industry to resources and going forward, its continuous mission is to coach the industry, through various means and methods, and move them toward success.
The Mission of OTOAI is to be the industry leader of the outbound segment of the travel industry in India by setting the highest standards of ethics and professional excellence.
