The glittering ceremony, marked by glamour, joy and excitement in equal measure, was an unprecedented success with over 200 travel professionals, VIPs and media from 16 countries in attendance.

Distinguished guests among the audience included Captain C.P Krishnan Nair, Chairman of The Leela Palaces Hotels Resorts, Hon. Dr. Mahamood Shougee, Maldivian Minister of Tourism & Civil Aviation, as well as Vikram Oberoi, Joint Managing Director of The Oberoi Group.
