Trav Talk|January 1st 2018

The 6th edition of GPS, beginning in Nagpur from January 15-17, will travel to eight cities in 2018. This year, GPS plans to launch its membership card and introduce two products—RainbowCTM and Trip38. The attendees will also be able to participate in around six EDWIN workshops to be hosted this year.

After the Nagpur edition, Global Panorama Show (GPS) will be hosted in Hyderabad (February 8-10), Ahmedabad (July 5-7), Chandigarh (July 12-14), Lucknow (July 19-21), Kolkata (August 2-4), Kochi (August 9-11) and Pune (August 23-25). Harmandeep Singh Anand, Managing Director, Global Panorama Showcase, explains that the purpose of GPS is to educate and empower the agents in the tertiary markets. Anand says, “With our presence in six cities across India in 2017, and an attendance of over 7,000 visitors across all the events, we realised that there are areas which still need to be covered to encompass all Tier-II and TierIII cities in India. Hence, we decided to add Lucknow and Hyderabad to our portfolio of events this year. With the addition of these two new cities, we envisage an overall increase in our market reach to over 8,000 travel agents and travel professionals in 2018 across all the eight cities. The GPS App has become an essential part of every attendee. The lead scanning tool for the exhibitors is a USP of GPS and if used optimally, it can reap high returns for the exhibitors.”
