According to the IHHA officials, enough attention and time was not given by tour operators to heritage hotel owners at events like Great Indian Travel Bazaar and other such travel forums since they have to compete with larger hotels and prestigious chains. This visit will be entirely focused on the heritage hotels and has been organized for the first time.

The tour operators visiting the heritage properties are : Kuldeep Singh Chandela; Mohan Singh Mertiya;  Mahender Singh; Amit Bomb;  Sukhdev Singh; Inder Vijai Singh;  Nitin Mathur and Aditya Agrawal.
