About the Conference
Rural tourism is gaining importance in India due to its ability to contribute to the socio-economic well-being of the host communities. It is estimated that Rs.4300 crores additional revenue can be generated through Rural tourism.
The objective is to showcase rural life, art, culture, and heritage at rural locations and in villages, which have core competence in art and craft, handloom, and textiles as also an asset base in the natural environment.
The intention is to benefit the local community economically and socially as well as enable interaction between tourists and local population for a mutually enriching experience.
