Jamshedpur, June 1: Beat downturn, promote tourism.
This seems to be the mantra of the Jamshedpur Hoteliers’ Association (JHA), which has decided to launch a comprehensive website to provide detailed information on unexplored tourist destinations in and around the city, accommodation and transport. The website, expected to be floated within a month, will focus on East Singhbhum and Seraikela-Kharsawan districts.
“We have requested quotations from companies. A number of executives come here for official purposes but there are unaware of the beauty of the surrounding region. Through the website we will try to promote these areas to them so that they can club holiday and business together,” said Prabhakar Singh, the president of the association.
To draw executives, the hoteliers’ body has decided to offer attractive holiday packages. The packages, room tariff, budget, conveyance and hotspots will find space on the website.
“Often executives come here for work but during weekends or when there is no work they have nothing to do but stay put in the hotel only. As there is few recreational areas in the city, they can visit the nearby hotspots on weekends to rewind themselves. Our holiday packages will be designed keeping them in mind,” said Singh.
The association also has applied for affiliation from Federation of Hotels and Restaurants Association of India to come up with a training institute in the city where localites can be trained for better hospitality.
