Good Hospitality influences sustained tourismLecture on dedicated hospitality and aiming sustained tourism
Ladies and Gentleman, we are gathered here to know the importance of hospitality which indirectly gives the broader perspective of our state and the dedication we attach with the influx of tourism. Here Hospitality is not just receiving the guest and dropping them at the designated stay places and then running away from the duty. A dedicated hospitality has a greater meaning to understand and implement. Those who come for this place for the first time have lots of expectations about the history of the place, the food habits of the people and above all the places of interest to be seen which has the national and International importance. So the hospitality begins with Athithi Devo Bhava, that means conducting a dedicated tour of the tourists with detailed explanation of places being visited and also introducing to them the important food being taken as the daily habit of the people. Some tourist would be interested to have history of the places being visited and for that a detailed brochure be prepared to be given to them.
And we must also ensure that the local dressing sense has to be implemented and made known to the tourists. We know most of the lady tourists would be interested in Lambadi attire and they must be provided with the same to adore and enjoy. The tourists later be taken to the market place where they would make the purchases famous in the region.
So hospitality and tourism would go hand by hand.
