MUMBAI—India International Film Tourism Conclave (IIFTC) 2018, Asia’s largest Locations Show took place in Mumbai as a 3-day extravaganza from Mar. 1 to 3 at Hotel J. W. Marriott. IIFTC 2018 was supported by the Film Federation of India.

Film Commissions and Tourism Offices of over 25 countries gathered in Mumbai to showcase their locations, incentives and production services to the Indian film industry. The bridge they had set out to create between the film industry and global shooting locations is today a well-traveled one. To create more business opportunities, IIFTC has launched a new feature, Market Guide, on their website, allowing all business participants to pre-fix their meetings.

The 3-day international conclave started with the grand opening gala. The special guests were Telugu producer Allu Aravind, Tamil director K.V. Anand and David Dhawan, who received an award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Indian Cinema.’
