Fifth edition of ‘The RARE Showcase’ 2022 to be held in Delhi on 6th and 7th April
RARE India, which is a community of conscious luxury boutique hotels, palace stays, wildlife lodges, homestays and retreats in the Indian subcontinent, will be hosting the fifth edition of its signature event ‘The RARE Showcase’ at The Imperial in New Delhi on 6th and 7th April. The event will be held in a limited edition format with an aim to aid the revival of inbound travel by getting the RARE Community and the travel agent fraternity to meet for discussions about destinations, sustainability, routing ideas and lessons from the pandemic.
30 of the 100 privately-owned, stand-alone RARE Community partner hospitality brands will participate in The RARE Showcase 2022 to create awareness about sustainable and slow travel that places a great emphasis on community engagement and strives to preserve and protect the planet – something that RARE has always held sacred.
Sharing her thoughts on the upcoming event, Shoba Mohan, Founder, RARE India, said, “Though video conferencing and Zoom rooms helped us in the pandemic and built us stronger, personal contact, conversations and that one-on-one time together is what creates relationships and hence magic. As some of our oldest hotels and newest members gather together, it’s time to prepare for what may yet be travel’s best years, aware, mindful, transformational and a force for change.”
Some of the properties that will participate in The RARE Showcase 2022 include Glenburn Tea Estate (Darjeeling), Glenburn Penthouse (Kolkata), Neeleshwar Hermitage (Kerala), Lotus Houseboat (Kerala), Qayaam Gah (Kashmir), Sukoon Houseboat (Kashmir), The Sarai at Toria (Near Khajuraho), Jamtara Wilderness Camp (Pench), Premkunj (Udaipur), Ramathra Fort (Karauli) etc.
Mrinalika M. Bhanj Deo, Owner of The Belgadia Palace in Odisha, will also be present at the upcoming event. She said, “The RARE Showcase 2022 gives us an exceptional opportunity to meet both inbound agents, agencies and hoteliers to share ideas and understand the larger ecosystem of the travel industry post the pandemic, which has drastically altered the landscape of global travel. This is an especially important event for lesser-known destinations such as Odisha, which are of great interest to an inbound market given it is promoting a local for global narrative highlighting its nature, heritage, culture and local cuisine, all keeping sustainability with the climate and community in mind.”
