PANAJI: Goa is high on the list of preferred wedding destinations for urban US tourists, the Goa tourism delegation that returned last week from a promotional visit to the US west coast said.
The three-city tour along the Pacific Coast included road-shows and networking meetings with trade representatives in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas. Atlanta-based Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) which had offered to help market Goa as a holiday destination in the US assisted the Goa delegation led by tourism minister Nilkant Halarnkar and included chief secretary Sanjay Srivastava and tourism director Swapnil Naik.

While Goa is a popular holiday destination with European travellers, especially from the UK,Russia and the Scandinavian countries, because of its beaches, the trend in the US is different.
The US traveller sees Indian states, especially Rajasthan and Goa as exotic wedding destinations.
Naik said, "The US traveller is drawn to India because of its rich history and cultural heritage. In addition, their interests lie in nature, wildlife, hinterland and adventure tourism. There has been keen interest among trade representatives to add Goa to the travel itinerary of young urban couples looking to celebrate their wedding vows in an exotic location overseas."
Srivastava said, "Owing to its beautiful backdrops, natural landscapes and architectural beauty, the American trade fraternity has expressed interest on the possibility of promoting Goa as a wedding destination."
Taking the initiative further, AAHOA has invited the state to participate in its annual convention and trade show in mid-June at Las Vegas, Nevada. Halarnkar said, "The visit to the US is a stepping stone to further promotional activities in the region. Participating in the trade show in June will give our marketing activities in the US some impetus. We will also try and visit the east coast during the next visit. Additionally, the city of Cerritos which has a sizable Indian population has offered us a platform to showcase Goa within the region. "
