BENGALURU: In a bid to attract more domestic tourists to the state, Assam’s Tourism Department plans to spend around Rs 15 crore towards a 360 degree campaign that will include television commercials over the next six months or so. The department has already shortlisted as few agencies and will shortly complete its selection process before the end of this month reveal travel and tourism industry sources.

“We are looking at print advertising, advertising at airports, on railway tickets, on social media, radio, television, outdoor, through roadshows such as this one, etc.,” said Assam Government Commissioner & Secretary, Tourism  Department Ashutosh Agnihotri to www.indiantelevision.com. Agnihtori was a part of Assam Tourism Department’s roadshow at Bengaluru.

“We had budgeted around Rs 12-13 crore, but this figure can go up to Rs 15 crore towards marketing and brand building over the next six months. Until the end of the financial year, if, required, we will spend even more, maybe up to Rs 20 crore,” revealed Agnihotri further.

Exhorting Kannadigas to visit Assam, Assam MP Gaurav Gagoi, who made an impromptu visit to the roadshow, ran the audience through the route followed by some of his relatives from the UK who had recently toured Assam.

During 2014-15, Assam’s domestic inbound tourist flows stood at 45,00,000 while overseas tourist flow was at 25,000.

To tap niche tourism opportunities, Assam, which accounts for about 60 per cent of the national tea production and 80 per cent of the country’s export, will promote its tea estates making way for travelers to enjoy and experience the craft of tea making. Tourists will get to reside in the quintessential British era bungalows within the estates, enjoy their cuppa and delve into the history behind this industry. There are close to 800 major and 60,000 small tea estates spread across 300,000 hectares in Assam employing 17 per cent of the state’s workforce.

An added attraction will be the “tea-tees” or golf courses in tea estates which are a class of their own. There are approximately 20 such zones in Assam. As part of legacy of the British planters of yesteryears, besides very classic clubhouses for post-golf sessions, some estates even house airstrips for tourists to arrive and take off in chartered aircrafts.
