GPS officially inaugurates EDWIN Programme in Pune; calls for registrations

Besides the soft launches of Educational Destination Workshop International (EDWIN) in the other cities, the Global Panorama Showcase (GPS) Pune edition today observed the official launch of the programme, confirmed Raju Akolkar, CEO, GPS.

The first programme under EDWIN will be hosted to Leh-Ladakh in September (in association with Ravine Trek which is an adventure and leisure tour company) and to Malaysia in October this year. Registrations for the same are now officially open, stated Rishiraj Singh Anand, Co-founder, GPS.

“Registration for EDWIN was officially opened at the GPS Pune edition. To qualify for EDWIN, most importantly one needs to have attended atleast one edition of GPS in any of the cities as a Buyer. Only one person will be taken from each company. The workshop schedule will be fixed and the accommodation will be on twin-sharing basis. This programme has been solely designed for the buyers from the Tier-II and III markets. Also, one winner of Priceport (buyers taking selfie with suppliers) will be fully hosted for EDWIN,” stated Anand.

The format of EDWIN will be that of a 6-7 night programme including one-day of networking with local suppliers (about 35-50), two-nights (approx.) on cruise and three-nights (approx.) on land. Under the same, GPS has partnered with Star Cruises, Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Tourism and Indonesia Tourism so far and is also in talks with other NTOs.

The workshop will comprise flight, accommodation, meals, transport and sightseeing. It will be conducted on a highly subsidised rate and will serve as a good medium to explore the destination and the travel segment therein.
