Thomas Cook India’s 3 pronged strategy focussed on innovation, technology and exceptional service to deliver a spectacular event. The 360-degree transformation of the venue was impressive: converting barren land into imposing marquees, the size/scale of massive hangar-like structures. The Thomas Cook Team deployed cutting edge technology to create an innovative digital exhibition with unique elements like foot sensors for data activation on specially installed magnum screens, ink walls and touch table technologies set against a cinematic backdrop. To ensure exceptional service, Thomas Cook India delivered bespoke arrangements for over 250 VIP guests including premium airport and ground transportation and special lounges/meeting areas, exclusive cuisine/catering services, etc. Special assistance was also provided to ensure seamless check-in and check-out, in addition to set up of help desks at airports of Jamnagar, Rajkot and Ahmedabad and hotels in Rajkot and Jamnagar.

In addition to the event, Thomas Cook was also responsible for managing public relations and media outreach for the Government’s prestigious Global Ayush Investment & Innovation Summit in Gandhinagar.
