Last April 2-4, 2014, Travelife Magazine, the leading travel and lifestyle magazine, participated in the 3rd and biggest edition of Goa International Travel Mart in Goa, India.
The grandest B2B event in Goa was officially launched with an elaborate opening night ceremony at the beautiful Goa Marriot Resort & Spa overlooking the Arabian Sea.
Local dignitaries and over 275 hosted buyers and media from over 30 countries were present in this grand event.
Travelife Magazine general manager Gel Bayona wrote, from Goa:
“We were treated to cocktails, gastronomic Indian cuisine, and of course some Bollywood music and dancing with our new local and foreign friends. It was indeed a fun and interactive night while getting to know more about Goa and what it can offer.
The next day, the Goa International Travel Mart (GITM) was officially inaugurated at the Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium took place the next day. That’s where the Governor of Goa, H.E. Shri Bharat Vir Wanchoo, and Principal Secretary of Tourism Shri RK Srivastava IAS invited guests.”

Travelife Magazine was there to represent Asia. In the process we dicovered the wonderful destination of Goa.
With a unique blend of East and West and its unmistakeable Portuguese influence, Goa is truly an exotic destination — and we’re going to be sharing some of what we experienced in upcoming issues of Travelife Magazine.
Travelife Magazine general manager Gel Bayona added, from Goa:
“One thing that struck us was how they wanted Goa to be a premier investment and tourist destination from an ecologically friendly viewpoint. They want tourists to visit, and to take care and be responsible of Goa too.
We think this is important, especially for a place to stay as beautiful and as pristine. We had an incredible time getting to know Goa in India — a land of contrasts, rich history, and colors.
Goa is definitely a must-visit, especially for people who are constantly looking for a never ending and never-endingly eventful Travelife.“
