Tourism execs to visit India to explore market

Executives from the tourism departments of a US company will soon be in India to check out the shopping scene.

A top-level team from the tourism departments of Simon Shopping Destinations of the USA, is coming to India for the first time on October 17 and 18 to see the market prospects and interact with agents and media in India.

There are about 100 stores from Simon Shopping Destination that are located at or near tourist destinations and are spread out in malls and other exclusive outlets.

eTN learned that Ms. Kristen Eposito, Vice President of Tourism and Marketing Alliances, and Ms. Lavern Rogers, Director of Global Tourism Marketing, will lead the Simon team during their India visit. The wide range of options in the various classes of stores is expected to make interest from the company in the Indian market, which is seeing healthy growth in outbound travel, especially to the US.

The team comes at a time that is not long after Brand USA held a trade mission to India with 37 companies taking part.
