Rohit Gupta from Travel and Taste along with his team were very fortunate to organise the Goa Tourism Roadshow in Melbourne on 19th Oct 2015. This event was highly successful with key stakeholders in attendance including those from the Travel Trade Industry from all across Victoria. Travel and Taste is also a nominee at the Indian Executive Club Awards 2015 under the Micro Business Category.
With close to a 100 people in attendance, the event scaled through art forms of dance, music and folklores in true Goan style. The Senior Indian High Commission Officials, the Consul General Melbourne and India Tourism Officials were those that graced the occasion with their presence. The Consul General of India in Australia, Ms. Manika Jain and Hon. Tourism Minister of Goa, Mr. Dilip Parulekar were among the few to address the audience.
Travel and Taste took immense pleasure in organising this event at a five-star hotel in Melbourne – The Langham. Personal invitations were sent to travel agents and advertisements were placed in Travel Magazines, websites and newsletter. This roadshow was looked upon by all travel agents from Victoria as a much needed event to enhance the position of Goa in the Australian Travel Industry. This event was only the first step in Goa Tourism’s new strategy – “Look East”. The event was rightly chosen to be held in Melbourne which has been named as the most liveable city five years in a row. Roadshows such as this one not only boost the Australian and Indian travel industries but also enable building the India – Australian relationships. Such events help spread the word about India and why it’s such an amazing tourist destination due to its vibrant culture, breathtaking scenery and exciting foods to name a few.
It was a pleasure for the Indian Executive Club to be partnered with this event.
