Mumbai: Branded as Maldivian Night, Maldives Association of Travel Agents and Tour Operators (MATATO) hosted a destination showcase for the Maldives in Mumbai.
Over 200 travel professionals from the two countries attended the exclusive event hosted at the Four Seasons, Mumbai. Maldivian Night was presented in part as a business networking event, where Maldivian hoteliers and travel agents had the opportunity to meet with over 150 prominent travel agents and tour operators from India.
Several Maldivian companies took part in the business networking event, which concluded with an entertaining evening to promote and feature Maldives Travel Awards. Organised as part of destination marketing efforts by MATATO, the event marks the 3rd Travel Trade event lead by MATATO in India in 2018.
“We are really excited about having stepped up Destination Marketing efforts this year. And we look forward to continuing on this branding of events at major travel markets for the Maldives. So far this year, we have been very loud in our marketing activities in the Asia Pacific region, especially in India,” said Abdulla Ghiyaz Riyaz, President, MATATO.
This is the first ‘Maldivian Night’ organised by MATATO in India. A similar event is scheduled to be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, before the Maldives Awards Gala.
