My First Trip to India and the Madhya Pradesh Travel Mart

In this episode, I share info about the Madhya Pradesh Travel Mart and my FAM trip following the mart. A FAM is short for a familiarization trip. Some PR or tourism call them media trips, some refer to them as a press trip and others call them a FAM. The mart was organized by the Madhya Pradesh Tourism Board (MPTB) and it was the fourth year this mart was held and the Primary objective was to market and promote Madhya Pradesh as a destination throughout the year. Their focus was on increasing domestic and inbound traffic into the State.
