The evolution of the representation industry in India
Speaking about how the representation industry in travel has changed over the last few years, Ms. Munnmunn said, “Representation a few years ago was focussed on educating people in the trade through training, sales calls and participating in trade shows and road shows. Today, we are playing a role in educating the consumer about what destinations have to offer.” ‘Think Strawberries’ is also aware of the growing importance of the digital space and how important maintaining visibility is in the online sphere.
‘Think Strawberries’ wants to engage with a younger market segment
