The two-day show will mainly feature B2B roadshow and meetings between buyers and sellers, where 100 hosted international 250 hosted domestic buyers would be coming to Bengaluru to network, interact and do business with all our stakeholders. There will be post—fam tours for buyers as well. The show will help tourism achieve new heights in Karnataka and build relationships across the world,” said Kumar Pushkar, MD, KSTDC and in charge Director, Karnataka Tourism.
