“Taking place after the pandemic, we are glad to be back in India with a two-city Roadshow – Delhi and Mumbai. The purpose of this roadshow is to celebrate Peru’s rich cultural heritage and remind Indians to make their travel plans to our country and tick off a visit to Machu Picchu from their bucket list. Before the pandemic, 10,000 Indians visited Peru and we are hopeful of achieving this number by the end of this year. For the next year, our target is to get a 50% increase to this number, for which we have planned a series of marketing activities including more roadshows, participation in International Trade Shows, maybe organise a FAM trip for the agents and more. We are a country that has something for everyone and Indians must visit Peru.”
