Jumeirah Group conducts 2-city India roadshow; partners with MakeMyTrip for direct bookings


Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts recently conducted a two-city roadshow in Mumbai and Delhi, to strengthen the brand’s ties with the Indian travel-trade fraternity. The roadshow was part of Jumeirah’s newly enhanced focus on India as a source market for its hotels in the UAE, Europe and the Maldives.

Speaking at the roadshow, Linda Lewis, Vice President for Global Sales Middle East and Asia Pacific, Jumeirah Group, said, “The Indian market has witnessed a considerable rise in outbound luxury travel in recent years. Given that this demographic seek superior travel and stay experiences; our current portfolio includes hotels and resorts within a number of favored locations; and we are one of the world’s most awarded luxury hotel brands, Jumeirah is well placed to fulfill the requirements of the Indian luxury traveller, including families, couples, the MICE industry and those seeking destination weddings and honeymoons.”

Jumeirah recently signed a direct connectivity partnership with MakeMyTrip (MMT) India, providing a smooth booking channel for Indian consumers who wish to book Jumeirah hotels around the world. Lewis added, “India is a key source market into the UAE and into a number of our other destinations including the UK and Maldives. We are focusing on expanding and consolidating our ties with the FITs and the luxury travel segment to reach out to a larger audience and gain a higher market share. MMT’s reach and presence in India goes above and beyond Tier 1 states. With this in mind, our visibility on this platform will help to increase brand awareness and gain new consumers.”
