The Tourism Office of Spain in India (Turespaña) organized a press meet at The Claridges Hotel in New Delhi on 4th of July 2019. The event was graced by B2B and B2c media alike from the city of New Delhi. There were around 23 media participants who witnessed the Spanish ¨festivities and culture¨ and ¨way of life¨ at the event. The focus of the meeting was to make the media in India acquainted with the various Spanish festivities through an interactive audio-visual presentation about some of the special festivals celebrated throughout the year in Spain. The event began with a wine-tasting session with an Indian Sommelier. A Flamenco-Kathaa performance was another experience that showcased a peculiar connection between India and Spain. It was much appreciated amongst the guests present. The guests also tasted some Spanish tapas like patatas, bravas, pinchos de pollo, lamb albondigas along with some Spanish red and white wines already available and sold in India.
Spain is definitely a great place for Indians, and we have more and more tourists from India coming to experience the unique culture. We love to celebrate and we love colours, like Indians. The festivals of La Tomatina and Running of the Bulls (San Fermines) are already famous in India, but we have much more to offer, so come and enjoy, live and love Spain!¨ concluded Mr. Miguel Nieto-Sandoval San Segundo, the current director of the Tourism Office of Spain in India and Abu Dhabi who also announced that a new director for India would take over in September this year.
