Your Local DMC in India
Welcome to India.
FOR YOUR MEETINGS, INCENTIVE, CONFERENCE AND EVENT
At every corner, at every step, on every day in India, each one of your senses is touched by the most incredible array of colours, melodies of sounds, whiffs of fragrances, tanginess of cuisines and textures of fabrics. This is a country that is destined to change the way you travel and the way you look at life.
On our incentive programs, your guests will not only experience the magnificence of our ancient civilisations with the mingling of modern cultures, but they will also immerse themselves in unique experiences designed to touch one of the specific senses that make the journey special. It is a life-altering experience and a trip of a lifetime.
The Royal Finale
The 18th century Royal City Palace of Jaipur is a magnificent backdrop for a closing dinner or awards ceremony that is amplified by a unique procession of elephants, camels, horses, dancers and canons, as was done when the Maharaja returned home from battle.
Have you heard of the game of Polo? But ever heard of “Camel Polo”. Relive the glory of this sport of the royals. A special demonstration game of camel polo will be arranged, including a game played by the guests. Special ceremonial bands will play, and a lavish buffet will be laid out.
Lights, Camera, Action
Bollywood is synonymous with India. The drama, the dance. The colours, the music. Indian cinema has caught the imagination of people across the world. From Bollywood dance classes to a professional performance at the gala dinner, this engaging activity is always a big hit.

Why This DMC?
I was born into the business. With over 26+ years of industry experience, I am proud to have been SITEs first-ever Asian President. I am passionate about contributing to the development of our industry and do a lot of speaking, writing and advocacy work. In 2017, I was recognised as one of the ‘25 Most Influential People in the global incentive industry and in 2015 was awarded the “IMEX Academy Award”. And I love ice cream!
You said once, India changes people. Back then, I sceptically laughed. Now I 100% agree with you. I cannot put the feeling in words, but there is for sure a before and after chapter in my incentive trips experience. You have set a very high… the level of details through all the programme was insane. Thank You! For being super professional, incredibly kind and an amazing dmc.

I am still amazed that your team could plan and execute such an event so professionally with all the complexities that such an upscale incentive as Amway’s Diamond event brings: an unqualified success. One of the best events we have participated in in the past 20 years.

Very professional, knowledgeable, enlightening and entertaining at the same time. Every detail was well thought through, and any request that arose was accommodated with great generosity, humility and attention. The team had a huge impact on the success of the trip (which itself was resounding)…

THE POWER OF OUR LOCAL KNOWLEDGE
India is an amazing mix of the ancient and the modern making it a unique blend of cultures to experience. The luxury in the accommodation we have in India is hard to find elsewhere. We have unique venues from the Taj Mahal to Forts & Palaces. Our kitchens can deliver a mix of cuisines from across the world; we don’t serve curry all the times. Our Sanskrit philosophy of “Athithi Devo Bhava” or ‘The Guest is God’ ensures a visitor to India will always see a friendly smile willing to help. Our service comes from inside, from the heart and that’s what makes India unique. India is a global economic power. We have embraced our past and take on the future.
A trip to India is not only a great travel experience, but it is also an opportunity to experience one of the strongest and largest economies in the world. It makes the business case to bring a group here.
We know what gets asked a lot about bringing groups to India. Here’s our fast track answers, so you know.

Spicy is not chilli ! India may be synonymous with spices and “curry”, but our cuisines are as varied as its people. Every part of India has its own special food, most of which is never experienced abroad. Not everything we eat is spicy. Our hotels understand to tone down our Indian food for the international traveller. We offer all sorts of cuisines apart from Indian – Italian, European, Mediterranean, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, and so much more. We do not serve beef (the cow is holy), but have mutton, lamb, pork, seafood, vegetarian, vegan & something for every dietary & allergy need and desire.
Indian hospitality is truly world-famous. Our Indian hotel brands are known for their style and service delivery. We have a wide range of hotels to choose from; some are amongst the best hotels in the world as ranked by Conde Nast, Tatler, Travel & Leisure, & many others. Choose from award-winning Royal Palaces & Forts to exquisite boutique hotels. For those on modest budgets, we have great options that offer excellent value & quality. We have options to fit any style, budget, and size. Creative Travel, with it’s diversified portfolio, has the year-round buying large volumes & negotiating power to ensure that we can guarantee the best value & prices for your clients.
The most basic tour to India is called ‘The Golden Triangle’ or what we at Creative like to call ‘Dreams of the Taj’. Covering the cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, this tour can vary from 4 to 7 nights and more. Clockwise or counter-clockwise, this trip can be designed in multiple ways. Ask us about our twist on this traditional route and how we have made it more time-efficient and also more relaxing. For groups who have already been to India, we have amazing options for Kerala in the South or our other neighbouring countries.
