Another, wholly independent opportunity comes via the government of India’s Tourism office who issued this RFP.
Media reports in Indian media have noted that negative publicity about of sexual assaults on foreign tourists could scare away tourists as such. It was said senior tourism ministry officials to the media that, ““India is going through major challenges…in view of the negative publicity related to safety and security of tourists over the past two years. There is a need to focus on image building by stepping up PR activities and engaging more frequently with the media,” said a senior Tourism Ministry official. He continued, “To achieve this, there is a need to counter all such negative media coverage through regular liaison with the media and communications to the key media by way of press briefings, press releases, etc.”
India is looking for a strong public relations company in mainland China. Focus for that assignment is focused on encouraging more tourists from China to visit India – fairly straightforward. The selected agency will have experience – and previous success – in digital media, event planning, media relations and more. There’s no selected budget for the assignment which is being overseen by the Embassy of India, Beijing.
Another opportunity from the Indian Tourism office comes via “Travel Agent’s Know India Seminars”, where a PR firm (or event manager) is sought to “invite the front office staff of Travel Agents, Tour Operators with programmes to India and also with potential to have programmes to India give them an opportunity to know about the products and various developments that have taken place in India, especially the niche markets of Medical Tourism, Rural Tourism, Wellness Tourism, Luxury Trains and the like.
