India to have tourism office representing US state of Nevada

Washington: An official of Nevada announced that a new travel and tourism office representing the US state will soon be set up in New Delhi.

The Lt Governor Thomas Hutchinson has set his sails towards India in order to launch the initiative. Before departing the Lt Governor said: “Opening an office in India will provide Nevada with greater opportunities to promote international travel and tourism to our state”.

From the statistics of a research conducted, he further revealed that a person’s biggest reason for travel from India to the US is to meet his family residing there. Also, he said the state enjoys 6.5 percent share of the Indian travel market.

“We currently enjoy 6.5 per cent of the India travel market share here in Nevada. With a new office in New Delhi, I am confident that our increased presence will encourage even more tourists from India to visit the Silver State,” Hutchinson said.

The Governor further informed about an average Indian’s annual budget of USD 5,451 for an international travel. Also, the person prefers staying in mid-priced hotels and desires to experience duty-free shipping.

Nevada has by far the most hotel rooms per capita in the United States. According to the American Hotel and Lodging Association, there were 187,301 rooms in 584 hotels (of 15 or more rooms). Nevada has one hotel room for every 14 residents, far above the national average of one hotel room per 67 residents. (Inputs from Agencies) (picture courtesy:wikipedia)
