Services International Ltd and India Tourism were on the road last month, meeting with agents across southern Ontario and showcasing what the company and destination has to offer Canadian travellers.

The shows took place in Oshawa (Jan. 14), London (Jan. 20) and Barrie (Jan. 21), drawing many travel agents at each date. Among the special guests welcomed were Anil Oraw, director, India Tourism Toronto (attending all three shows); R.K Perindia (consular, passport and visa, who was welcomed in Oshawa); and India Consulate General Akhilesh Mishra and wife Reeti Mishra, who attended the London presentation.

Garima Shamsukha, manager business development for Services International, said the shows  highlighted both the company’s “tailor-made/personalized services, which people in Canada value,” as well as India’s vast array of tourist attractions, ranging from historic and cultural draws to adventure travel opportunities.

“India is a destination that many travellers have on their bucket lists,” said Shamsukha.

According to Shamsukha, future shows will take place in other parts of Canada later this year.

“I feel 2015 and 2016 will be good years for travel to India,” she said.
