Ms. Eudora Fernandes, Branch Manager, STIC Travel Group, Mumbai, collected the award on behalf of the company.
Mr. Subhash Goyal, Chairman, STIC Travel Group, said: “We are pleased with this appreciation by Outbound Travel Mart (OTM). Holland America Line operates in the premium segment for cruises and offers fantastic value across all its cruise itineraries. Seabourn is rated #1 in the industry for small ship luxury cruising & Windstar Cruises offers the most romantic, luxurious and unique destinations. Our team worked very hard to ensure that they showcase these quality brands in the right manner at OTM, Mumbai and I am very proud of them.”
Ms. Eudora Fernandes, Branch Manager, STIC Travel Group said, “It is an honour to receive this prestigious award. We have received a lot of queries from travel agents & direct clients at the OTM and to receive this award was the pinnacle of a very productive show! We are extremely happy on receiving this recognition.”
STIC Travel Group, currently partners with three cruise liners - Holland America Line, Seabourn Cruises and Windstar Cruises. All three brands epitomise luxury cruising with an understated decadence of comforts. STIC has seen a tremendous growth in its cruise business over the past decade and especially the last 5 years. Cruising is no longer a niche holiday option but has become a preferred choice among leisure travellers across all categories. A more focussed approach by the government towards upgrading port terminals and revising the cruise policy will also go a long way in establishing cruising as high growth segment.
The three-day OTM fest organised between February 8 and 10, 2013, is one of India’s biggest international travel trade show. The event witnessed participation from various counties such as Canada, Philippines, Maldives, Egypt, Macau, Indonesia, Nepal and Russia.
