EIC honours Rajeev Kohli with the ‘Hall of Leaders’ award
The Events Industry Council (EIC) has conferred Rajeev Kohli, Joint Managing Director, Creative Travels, with the ‘Hall of Leaders’ award. This is the highest global honour in the MICE industry.
Giving his reaction to TravelBiz Monitor on the achievement, Kohli said, “I am completely stunned at being inducted into the EIC Hall of Leaders. I never could imagine how much my friends and peers think of me, so much more than I do of myself. I’m just one small cog in our larger universe. The love my SITE family and the industry at large have given me is immeasurable. I consider this honour to be an indication that success is determined simply by the efforts you make and the relationships you build along your journey. This honour is humbling to the core and I am super excited to be a part of this illustrious group of industry legends. Stunned.”
