Award for Manipur Tourism
NEW DELHI,8th Aug: Adding another feather to its cap, Manipur Tourism has won the Today's Traveller Award 2018 for Best State for Promotion of Festivals & Fairs under the domestic tourism category for the first time. The award ceremony of the 12th Annual Edition this year was held at Hotel Taj Palace, New Delhi on Tuesday. The award was presented by the chief guest, union minister of commerce & industries and civil aviation Suresh Prabhu and received jointly by Manipur Tourism Corporation Limited chairman Dr Sapam Ranjan and tourism director W Ibohal.
“We are delighted with the recognition given to us by Today’s Traveller Awards 2018. Manipur Tourism expanded its marketing and publicity campaign and reached out to different cities in India through engagement of various media platforms. The success of the campaign was visible during the Manipur Sangai Festival last year,” Dr Ranjan said.
It may be recalled that Lonely Planet, the largest travel guide book publisher in the world was roped in to print information booklets about Manipur’s tourist attractions keeping in view the need to inform visitors about the varied attractions in the state. W Ibohal said, “Acknowledgements like this helps motivate and inspire us to promote our state through a kaleidoscope of our local culture, our varied tribes and their colourful festivals”.
“We will take our marketing and promotional efforts to the next level this year and look forward to receiving more recognitions from the industry in other areas as well,” added Ibohal. The Today’s Traveller Awards ceremony is one of the most holistic awards in the country since its inception in 2007. Today’s Traveller Awards recognises and celebrates excellence across all sectors of hospitality, tourism, corporate and entertainment industries. The awards are determined by an evaluation process led by advisors and evaluators along with a panel comprising industry experts.
