Eastbound Group, one of India’s leading conglomerates offering a diversified portfolio of travel and tourism, travel- tech and event services, successfully concluded the 2nd edition of its experiential industry engagement event series ‘Eastbound Connect’ on February 24, 2023, in New Delhi.
Marking the 18th year of Eastbound Group, the event themed ‘Realign and Reaccelerate’ saw an enthusiastic turnout of over 250 of the most powerful names in the travel and hospitality industry, cementing its reputation as a place where icons and disruptors convene.
With the objective of knowledge-sharing and networking as its central premise, the event was executed as a two-part experience. While the first half of the day was focused at enriching knowledge-based sessions organized at Hotel Le Meridien Gurgaon, the latter unfolded as a glittering black-tie event at a premium experiential venue in New Delhi where some of the biggest stalwarts of the hospitality, travel and tourism fraternity contributed to an unmatched crackling energy. The crowd was entranced by an exquisite five-piece jazz troupe which was followed by a mesmerizing performance by a Coke Studio India artist.
In response to the positive reception at Eastbound Connect Prrithviraj Singh, Co-Founder Eastbound and Managing Director 2HUB, commented, “EBC has proven to be a key meeting point for the travel and hospitality community. It was a thrill for us to have such an enthusiastic response from industry partners. Incredible conversations contributed to an eclectic atmosphere underscoring our efforts to bring the industry together. We hope to further this cause through the future chapters of the event series.”
Amit Kishore, Group Founder, stated, “We have weathered a debilitating storm and yet emerged stronger. Truth be told this would not have been nearly possible if it wasn’t for the people who stood by us and supported us. Last year has been phenomenal for us and 2023 looks equally promising with group revenue set to cross 1000 Cr in the next 15 months. We also recently launched a highly advanced tech platform which is being adopted by all group businesses. We are completely geared towards establishing ourselves as a tech-first company.”
He continued, “Eastbound Connect Series is our way of celebrating and nurturing the fraternal spirit of the industry. It allows us to act as an enabler towards creating a lasting environment of cooperation and collaborations and, as a result, contribute to the industry in a way that’s not only impactful but also meaningful.”
