The three-day annual travel and tourism fair (TTF) was inaugurated by Shoeb Samad, regional director, India Tourism, at Chennai Trade Centre in Nandambakkam on Friday.

Considered one of the biggest travel fairs in the country, the event, which is supported by the Union ministry of tourism, has brought together more than 160 participants, both domestic and international, including those from Canada, Switzerland, Maldives, Bali, Mauritius and Bhutan.

While Friday and part of Saturday are reserved for travel trade visitors, from Saturday afternoon the show is open to all, to facilitate weekend travel shopping.

“A visit to the fair is a delightful experience, as colourful pavilions and stalls present glimpses, the feel and flavour of destinations and holiday products and packages,” said an organiser.
