Representing Goa Tourism on the occasion were Mr. Yogesh Naik (Marketing Manager) and Mr. Bharat Chodankar (Asst. Manager), Ms. Angela Jasmine Fernandes (Asst. Tourist Officer) and Ms. Chitra Vengurlekar (Information Assistant).
On the first two days (4th and 5th February) the trade made its presence felt, while the concluding day saw consumers visiting in large numbers. Given Goa’s proximity to Mumbai, and its popularity as a holiday destination for the metropolis’ travelling public, the traffic to the Goa Tourism stall was high. A lot of it was driven by concrete enquiries, which were knowledgably and collectively handled by the Goa Tourism officials and 10 representatives from Goa’s travel and hospitality sectors.
