TravTalk - India - - TRAVEL AWARDS -

To­day, with a di­verse range of brands and F&B trends, it feels amaz­ing to be a part of this in­dus­try when we are edg­ing to­wards some­thing big­ger

Ac­cord­ing to Nirupa Shankar, Di­rec­tor, Bri­gade Hos­pi­tal­ity, In­dia Travel Awards is a unique plat­form which recog­nises not just achiev­ers but also en­cour­ages the new­com­ers in the in­dus­try. She ex­claimed, “I would re­ally like to thank the DDP team and the jury for con­fer­ring me with this pres­ti­gious award. My en­try into the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try was quite by ac­ci­dent. I joined the com­pany when we had one ho­tel. To­day we have six and an­other six are un­der con­struc­tion. How­ever, ev­ery ho­tel owner un­der­stands that ho­tels are a tough busi­ness and ev­ery in­vestor re­it­er­ates that ho­tels make no fi­nan­cial sense. But dur­ing my jour­ney of about 10 years in this do­main, I have seen that the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try has un­der­gone a meta­mor­pho­sis.” She further pointed out that a decade ago, the types of ho­tels were dif­fer­ent and so were the trav­ellers. “There were not half as many brands in the coun­try. To­day, with a di­verse range of brands, the trends of F&B con­sump­tion of guests has changed and it feels amaz­ing to be a part of this in­dus­try at this point in time when we are edg­ing to­wards some­thing big­ger,” she added.

Nirupa Shankar, Di­rec­tor, Bri­gade Hos­pi­tal­ity, re­ceived the award for Face of the Fu­ture. She was fe­lic­i­tated by SanJeet, eet, Di­rec­tor, DDP Group; Ku­mar Pushkar, IFS and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Kar­nataka State Tourism De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (KSTDC) DC)...
