The Utah Office of Tourism revealed last week at a press conference in Mumbai that 8,700 Indians made the trip in 2022—a 5% increase over the pre-Covid year of 2019 according to Tourism Economics data. Indian travellers will spend USD 8.7 million in 2022.
The Utah Office of Tourism’s Rachel Bremer, Director of Global Markets, and Zach Fyne, Specialist of Global Markets, told the media that they will be collaborating with India’s top five tour operators this year to create unique itineraries for Utah.
By 2027, there is expected to be a tremendous spike in spending of 203.9% and a 42.6% growth in visits from Indian travellers.
Bremer described India as a major emerging market and stated, “Despite global uncertainties, India is one of the most stable tourism markets.” Out of the 700 registrants, 250 people have completed the program at the Utah Specialist Academy, and this year, the goal is to close the difference.
Utah is home to 28 beautiful driving routes, glamping sites, and Dark Sky Parks in addition to the mighty five national parks. According to Mansi Oza, Account Manager-India, Utah Office of Tourism, the organisation is eager to expand its reach in India in order to establish a reputation among different types of travelers there.
