Moderator – Gourmet & Liquor Panel at The Indian Luxury Expo

If you have been following my Instagram stories you’d know how the month of Feb 2019 started on a special note. I had this awesome opportunity to moderate a panel on Gourmet & Liquor trends in India at The Indian Luxury Expo (TILE).

The Indian Luxury Expo brings in leading luxury brands across 20 lifestyle segments to an elite and discerning target audience. This year, they changed the format to an experiential and engagement driven exhibition in combination with a tete-a-tete with Industry leaders. The primary goal is to bring together Industry titans to give talks that are idea-focused and on a wide-range of subjects, to foster inspiration, aspiration, awareness & provoke conversations that really matter. 

Panelist chosen for the topic Gourmet & Liquor trends were Suryaveer SinghTrance Hotels, Shaaz MehmoodOlive Bistro & Vijay Chandran –  The Westin Mindspace Hyderabad. Topics ranging from various Beer & Wine hybrids in the market to the growth of refined, regional Indian food – the panelist fostered the conversations gauging the latest trends.

The evening culminated with a play “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves” by Qadir Ali Baig Theatre.
