But in October, the country announced that it would be hosting the International Maldives Travel Market. It was held successfully on the 16th and 17th of November 2020, bringing together travel agents, tour operators, destination management companies as well as many a Maldives resort the likes of Kurumba Maldives. Under the banner “Reconnect, Revive and Grow,” the industry gurus discussed how they might boost the tourism industry in 2021 and beyond.
