Bahwan Travels' Holiday Souq 2014 Attracts Huge Crowd
March 18, 2014 - Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
Hundreds of families turned up to the Holiday Souq 2014 organized by Bahwan Travel Agencies over the weekend at Crowne Plaza. Both Omanis and expatriates from all walks of life thronged the venue to get to know about exciting holiday packages and offers from Bahwan Holidays and its travel partners.
More than eight hundred people, including diplomats, ministry officials, corporate dignitaries, IT professionals and media personalities, enjoyed a visual treat of some of the exotic destinations across the globe as well as took home a wealth of information on a variety of tour packages.
Business partners of BTA viz., Emirates, Cosmos, Globus, Avalon Waterways, Monograms, Thomas Cook India, Amazing Thailand and Incredible India, had dedicated counters and provided expert guidance to visitors in planning their itinerary, booking tickets and other travel arrangements such as boarding and lodging, transportation and hiring tour guides. Officials from Bank Nizwa were at hand explaining details of interest-free EMI schemes much to the delight of the customers.
"We are delighted to see such positive public response to the Holiday Souq concept," said Mr. Shankar Bose, General Manager, Bahwan Travel Agencies. "The visitors were highly satisfied as they were able to gather information across a variety of travel modes and literally hundreds of attractive packages – all under one roof. We will be doing more such roadshows in coming months."
Centred on the theme "Explore the World", Bahwan Holidays showcased multimedia presentations and promotional videos on Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, India, the UAE and Europe. Visitors also got an opportunity to enter into a raffle draw, which will be held separately during April 2014. Raffle winners will get a holiday package to one of the destinations viz., Vienna, Bangkok, Abu Dhabi, Jaipur and Goa.
Mr. Gareth Thomas from Wales, UK, currently a resident of London and a frequent traveler to the Gulf, said, "The Holiday Souq helped me in identifying potential destinations for the next leg of my tour. By bringing a multitude of travel partners under one umbrella, Bahwan Holidays has made it easy for discerning travelers looking for variety and value for money."
Fun-filled activities such as face painting and balloon art, on-the-spot games for children, live social media updates and some peppy music spiced up the proceedings.
