India shares its boundaries with the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal, and Indian Ocean. The shoreline of the country is quite extensive and stretches to over 7,000 km. Our country is also home to a widespread network of harbours and inland watercourses. The inland watercourses of the country comprise canals, rivers, creeks, and backwaters. The overall navigable span of the inland watercourses in India is 14,500 km. The water resources of our country includes water bodies that surround Islands, Capes, Gulfs and Lakes. The water bodies are top tourist draws as well. Visitors from different corners of the world come to see these water resources. As a result, the travel and tourism sector of India is getting a boost. It is felt that the there is a huge potential in developing and promoting marine and freshwater tourism avenues. At the same time there is a need to establish water borne means of transportation of goods and passengers from one port to another along the mainland water bodies as well as from mainland to islands that belong to India. Marine crafts such as Pleasure crafts and Small crafts and the infrastructure needed to support it such as Marinas, Seaplanes and trained manpower play an important role in addressing this section of the Tourism and Transportation industry. The sessions will try and cover the above topics. Registration for attending the Technical Sessions is compulsory and kindly do your registrations today. Open for the first 150 Delegates only.
