NEW DELHI: All roads led to the The Imperial, New Delhi which witnessed the third edition of VETA — Versatile Excellence Travel Awards — partnered by Taiwan Tourism. Guests including Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi, Rohit Roy, Sunil Grover, Sophie Choudry, Ambassador Tien Chung Kwang, Taipei Economic and Cultural Centre, Priyanka Nijhawan and diplomats from the Embassy of Czech Republic were welcomed with wine and winter delicacies from a food truck. Varun Malhotra, CEO Publisher, TravelScapes and organiser of the evening was spotted in conversation with Dr Lin Trust, Director, Taiwan Tourism Bureau who expressed, ''This is our second collaboration with VETA, the first in Dubai; we hope that through such collaborations we create interest in Taiwan and consequently 20 per cent growth in tourism from India. We have two hundred and sixty 3,000-m+ mountains so crisp air and luxurious mountain resorts await.'' The continued collaboration is one worth celebrating and so that's exactly what we did. MTV VJ and actor Sophie Choudry introduced VETA, TravelScapes and Taiwan with a short film on Taiwan and awards night began, with Dream Cruises picking up two awards, Jalesh Cruises winning 'India's fastest growing cruise line', Fortune Hotels bagging 'best business hotel chain', and 'heritage hospitality award' going to Welcome Heritage Hotels. Astride awards were comic sketches and then Priyanka Nijhawan and Jyoti Mayal were honoured with the title, 'woman entrepreneur of the year'. Spirits were so high that not even the winter rains towards the end of awards night could dampen our enthusiasm. Cheers!
