Senior professionals from the local hospitality industry participated in a hotel marketing roundtable organised by Blurb, a marketing agency, operating out of 91Springboard, Panjim.
The discussion focused on the finer points of digital marketing, influencer marketing and bookings from online travel agents. Speakers and audience participated in a very interactive Q & A segment. The roundtable was followed up with a networking opportunity attended by young startup entrepreneurs from the co-working space.
The panel included Saurabh Khanna, general manager, The Park Hotels, Sachin Patil, chief executive officer, Rubiq Solutions and STAAH channel management representative in Goa, Flexcia D’Souza, lifestyle writer, Wilbert Egipsy, revenue management consultant with Unomas hotels and Sapna Shahani, founder, Blurb.
“Our first marketing event was a big success. Not only did we have a full house but we got a lot of feedback from those who attended saying it was a great event. So maybe we will continue organising events like these where people from the hospitality industry can meet and discuss topics of importance to them. A lot of people stayed after the event to network and discuss their businesses as well,” said, Shahani.
