PHDCCI To Host 'the 5th Global Film Tourism Conclave' On July 1st At Juhu Beach

Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Hon’ble Cabinet Minister for Minority Affairs will be the Chief Guest and inaugurate the Conclave


On July 1, 2022, starting at 3 PM and taking place at the Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach in Maharashtra, the Ph.D. Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI) will host its signature event, the 5th Global Film Tourism Conclave (GFTC), with the topic "Unleashing the Power of Cinematic Tourism."

Film commissions, tourism boards, and production companies can advertise their sites, incentives, and services to the Indian film industry through the GFTC.

Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Hon’ble Cabinet Minister for Minority Affairs will be the Chief Guest and inaugurate the Conclave. The event's Guest of Honor is Shri Arvind Singh (IAS), Secretary, of the Government of India's Ministry of Tourism.

Senior representatives from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), the Government of India, and the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) will also attend the event.

According to Pradeep Multani, President of the PHDCCI, "Several sites have benefited in terms of visitor influx by serving as the setting for well-known domestic and foreign cinema. Along with the attention that these films bring, the destination also benefits in a variety of other ways, such as by generating cash, attracting investment, and creating jobs, all of which help the area's economy grow overall.

This year, the GFTC Felicitation will be given to veterans of the Indian cinema industry like Randhir Kapoor, Anees Bazmee, and Rahul Rawail. Senior representatives from 20 Production Houses have indicated that they will be at the program.

According to Pawan S. Jain, chair of the PHDCCI's tourism and hospitality committee, "Film Tourism" refers to the influences that movies can have on our travel choices by encouraging people to visit the locations depicted on screen. Cinematic tourism offers new product development opportunities, such as site tours, film museums, exhibitions, and the theming of already-existing tourist destinations with a film link, in addition to being a fantastic vehicle for destination marketing.

The incentive programs for filming in respective destinations will be discussed by representatives from tourism boards from places including Chhattisgarh, Hungary, Jammu & Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh, Norway, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Spain, and Turkey, among others.

Film tourism brings new product development options, such as location tours, film museums, and the theming of already-existing tourist attractions with a connection to movies, according to Rajan Sehgal, Co-Chair - Tourism & Hospitality Committee, PHDCCI. The Global Film Tourism Conclave has been put on by PHDCCI for the previous four years, and each year the reaction has been positive.

The Conclave will include panel discussions on the advancement of film tourism in both India and other nations. There will be an exhibition platform where destinations and private organisations can present their sites, tax benefits, and other services in addition to the panel discussions.
