Day 2 and Day 3 turned out productive as the Goa pavilion was visited by numerous dignitaries and industry experts who took the time to interact with the Tourism department officials and got to know more about the updated Goa Tourism portfolio. 

The last two days were a huge success, with several discussions and meetings to strengthen relationships that would bolster the appeal of tourism in Goa worldwide. The department officials had an interesting B2B discussion with Bagirov Sergei, a producer associated with KIT Film Studio, a Gazprom company, to explore the idea of Goa as a future film shooting destination for Russian feature films.

The Department of Tourism, Government of Goa, witnessed a trend towards holistic well-being, and cultural immersion which is an indication of growing demand among travelers for experiences that nourish both the body and the mind.
