Kempinski Hotels recently organized a three-city roadshow in India from 26th February- 28th February 2020. The roadshow was held in Mumbai, Bengaluru and Delhi to strengthen relationships with the leading travel agents and tour operators to boost Indian travelers to various Kempinski properties around the globe.
Kempinski’s expansion plans involve more than 100 luxury hotels in operation by the year 2021. In the near future the luxury hotel chain will be opening new properties in Ibiza, two in the Caribbean, one in Tel Aviv, Tbilisi, Bangkok, Guangzhou, Brazzaville and Almaty.
The roadshows witnessed participation from key luxury agents, top tour operators, TMCs, event and wedding planners of the Indian market. The roadshow gave the Indian travel trade the opportunity to have one to one interactions with thirteen participating Kempinski hotels from Middle East, Thailand, Switzerland, Munich, Doha, Singapore and many more.
The roadshows helped to support the local sales teams and further enabled lead generation and closure for business.
Amanda Elder, Chief Commercial Officer & Member of the Management Board of Kempinski Hotels SA, said “As India is one of the fastest growing outbound tourism markets in the world, it is becoming more important to us year by year. We highly appreciate to interact personally with top travel agents and luxury travel advisors in order to clearly understand their needs and the needs of their demanding clients. To attract especially the luxury traveller, opulence alone is not enough any more. Luxury now carries a more multi-layered meaning and centers increasingly around personalized experiences and not simply around just visiting a new destination.”
