Ultimate Luxury Summit: Destination Canada

oday’s Traveller, in association with Destination Canada, recently hosted a Luxury Summit at Le Meridien, New Delhi, to highlight newer and richer luxury experiences in Sports, Outdoors, Spa and Wellness holidays

In today’s fast-paced world, luxury translates into spending quality time on activities that give pleasure and joy…. activities that provide best in-class experiences. With the objective of discovering the best in Sports, Outdoors, Spa
and Wellness holidays, Today’s Traveller conceptualised a Luxury Summit with a special focus on Canada. The idea was to discover a healthier body and mind through travel and new luxury experiences centring around what Canada has to offer.
The purpose of the Luxury Summit was two-fold. The first was to examine luxury trends in Sports and Outdoors — from Dog-sledding to Northern Lights and Angling to Rail and Road journeys. The second was Spa and Wellness Tourism. In addition,  the Luxury Summit highlighted newer experiences like Cruising and enjoying Natural Springs in the Rockies.
Industry experts in the Two Panel Discussions spoke on these subjects with the authority that comes from several years of experience in their respective fields. They also addressed several relevant queries related to Spa & Wellness and Sports & Fitness.

The first Panel Discussion focussed on Sports and Fitness Tourism (from Dog-sledding to Northern lights and Angling to Rail and Road Journeys). Among the Panellists were Ranjit Vig (Managing Director, CAAIR Travels); Romil Pant (SVP & National Head – Leisure Travel Outbound & Domestic, Thomas Cook); Naveen Kundu (CEO & Managing Director, Mercury – Ebix Cash); Jagdeep Bhagat (Managing Director, Vee Bee Tours & Travels and Executive Board Member, NIMA); and Rajan Sehgal (Member Managing Committee – TAAI and President – India Golf Tourism Association).

The second Panel Discussion focussed on Spa and Wellness Tourism, with a spotlight on Cruise Holidays and enjoying the Natural Springs in the Rockies. Among the Panellists were Arun Varma (CEO, Allways Marketing and Travel Services); Kumud Sirohi (Director, Star Vacations); Rajan Verma (General Manager, JK Lakshmi Cement); Rajesh Sethi (Managing Director, Carnations Travel); Capt. Rajesh Sharma (Managing Director, Cushman and
Wakefield) and Carl Vaz (CEO and Strategic Director, Destination Canada).
