Face of the Future
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.
