and Designer Voyages roadshow strengthens Dubai as the preferred destination for Indian source market

The and Designer Voyages Team and Hotel partners hit the road in December to meet with travel agents and tour operators in four cities. The ‘Winter India Roadshow’ held from December 9 to 12, 2019, included stops in Ahmedabad, Surat, Indore and Jaipur offering opportunities for over 1,000 travel professionals to connect with leading hotels from Dubai. 

Travel Designer Group utilised this platform to orient the travel agents on the launch of its new brand ‘Designer Voyages’ with an objective to scale up their inbound product to UAE and gave travel partners the platform to meet top Dubai hotels including Caesars Bluewaters, Avani Deira, Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City, Rixos Hotels, Two Seasons Hotel and R Hotels, which focus on Indian Market.

At each city, the hoteliers oriented about their property to the local travel partners and even had one to one interaction with them and made them aware about the offerings, which helped the travel agents to get actual insights which they can pass on to their clients and have these hotels as an option.  

The response of the travel partners in all four cities was overwhelming and they were eager to know more about Designer Voyages, and the hotel properties. During the course of the event, there were real business talks, flow of knowledge and information, few feedbacks and suggestions which ended with a networking dinner. 

Jaal Shah, GMD, Travel Designer Group said, “India is a very big market with different customer segments and cultural codes. Our objective was to provide the stage for top Dubai hotels to meet and connect with our travel partners in order to better understand this increasingly important Indian market and how the travel agents can make the most of Dubai Inbound season.”
