Respected Sir/Madam,

“Warm greetings from Association of Buddhist Tour Operators (ABTO - The Platform of Tourism with Buddhism)”

ABTO is a forum of the Buddhist Pilgrimage Travel industry. Established in 2015 in Nalanda – the land of Dhamma, it has close connections and constant interaction with other Buddhist associations worldwide and is increasing its international networking with professional bodies for better facilitation to national and international Buddhist Pilgrims and travellers visiting Buddhist heritage sites in the region.

ABTO is a common forum of like-minded tour operators who are promoting Buddhist tour packages. It expects to work as an industry lobby by coordinating with the government agencies and other concerned stakeholders for bringing favourable policies for business and doing away with obstacles hindering business of our member agencies. 

ABTO is pleased to invite you to participate in the forthcoming ABTO Buddhist Conference & International Travel Mart to be held during 10-12 December’ 2018 in Bodhgaya.
The primary objective of the ABTO Buddhist Conference & Travel Mart is to establish an ideal B2B platform, which will bring tourism stakeholders (tour operators, travel agents, Buddhist societies, monastic organisations, transport operators, hoteliers, travel guides and other stakeholders) together and would enable them to interact and explore opportunities of business potential and build partnerships. 
Buyers and sellers as well as wholesalers and retailers of Buddhist tourism products will have an opportunity to showcase their products on this international stage. Buyers especially from South Asia, Southeast Asia, Eastern Asia, Australia, as well as emerging markets, are expected to participate in the mart.

We request you to provide your thoughts and suggestions in conducting the Buddhist Travel Mart. We would like to seek your guidance and participation in the workshop.
