Vietnam has emerged as a popular and promising new destination for Indians in the last year. To further promote Vietnam and showcase key tourism products from the destination, Qrius Connect recently conducted a four-city roadshow through their flagship event, Travel Connect in New Delhi, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, and Mumbai.
‘Travel Connect’ brought some of the most selective and top-notch tourism and hospitality brands and stakeholders from Vietnam as their key participants at the show. There were product presentations, B2B meetings, and networking sessions with buyers from the India market.
The event was inaugurated in New Delhi by the Ambassador of Vietnam to India, HE Nguyen Thanh Hai, along with welcome remarks from Nishant Gulliya, Founder and CEO, Qrius Connect. Also present at the event was Hoang Dai Ngai, Deputy Director from Vietravel, along with other delegates. In the other cities, the show was graced by Hoang Tung, General Consul of Vietnam in Mumbai, NS Srinivasa Murthy, Hon. Consul in Bengaluru, and Saurin Shah, Hon. Consul in Ahmedabad.
Speaking during the inauguration in Delhi, H.E Nguyen Thanh Hai said, “I appreciate Qrius Connect’s initiative and pro-activeness in connecting buyers and sellers from two countries. The number of direct flights between India and Vietnam has increased significantly, bringing the two countries physically closer. I believe there will be a sharp increase in the number of tourists visiting each other in 2023.”
The Travel Connect (India – Vietnam) initiative was sparked by the sharp increase in demand for Vietnam from India and the expansion of flight options, and Nishant Gulliya felt that now is the ideal time to market the country, disseminate information among the travel industry, and establish effective partnerships in order to increase tourism to Vietnam. Nishant expressed, “We are thrilled to host our exclusive roadshow for the splendid country of Vietnam. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Ambassador Nguyen Thanh Hai for appreciating the initiative and highlighting the strong potential for bilateral tourism relations between our two countries. I also want to thank all the important people that came together to make this event successful.”
