ATTOI was the first organisation of its kind to organise a colourful Carnival along Kovalam Beach with the support of The LeMerdien Hotel. The event was a huge success and was attended by more than 500 people. The event hosted a number of cultural programmes for which Kerala is famous for. The invitees received free transportation from Thiruvananthapuram City, which was again a unique effort from ATTOI.
Increase in Vehicle Tax
ATTOI approached the ruling as well as opposition parties of Kerala with details of inconveniences that may be caused to the public due to steep hike in vehicle taxes. The Government considered the request and granted relaxation very quickly which was again proof of joint efforts by the members.
Active Participation in Trade Fairs
Ever since ATTOI was formed, it was decided among the members that all trade fairs in the country and overseas, will be attended jointly by the members of ATTOI. This has not only invited attention to the harmony among various suppliers in the trade but was also appreciated by the Government as well as boards of Tourism. Every WTM, ITB, ATM, TTF are attended by a majority of members without fail.
The moment ATTOI realised that the customers who were travelling from long distances to Kerala, were suffering because of the legal issues at Munnar, ATTOI had communicated its displeasure through the media and through various channels. These comments were noted by the officials and some changes in action were brought about.
Education Programme for Drivers
ATTOI demands quality everywhere which can be achieved from experience only. As drivers of the trade are the key persons dealing with the guests on a daily basis, every member has taken steps to impart yearly training to the drivers within the organisation. Apart from this, a joint training programme had been also conducted at Thiruvananthapuram where hundreds of drivers had the opportunity to learn from invited faculties. A proposal for regular training programme to drivers has been put forward to the Dept. of Tourism.

Assisting New Tourism Companies

It includes helping companies in any issues they are facing, caused due to lack of knowledge being a new comer to the industry. There had been several cases where ATTOI assisted such companies and helped them recover.
