Thailand-based hotel and property development company, Dusit International, has opened a new Global Sales Office (GSO) in Mumbai, India, to promote Dusit Hotels & Resorts in India. The new office will manage sales across all market segments, including leisure, MICE and corporate business. Primarily, the team will focus on tier-I cities, such as New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru, but will also cover smaller cities. Keshwar Bhagat, Director of Sales – GSO India, will head the India office.
Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International, says, “With the volume of outbound travel increasing by about 25 per cent a year, India is now one of the fastest growing outbound travel markets in the world. If the prediction of United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) about the number of outbound Indian travellers reaching 50 million by 2020 is likely to be true, now is the perfect time for us to open a GSO in the country. This comes in tandem with our own growth, which will see our current tally of 29 hotels and resorts crossing 80 worldwide within the next three to four years.”
