are meant to be broken goes the popular adage... but,
we contradict this time and again, as we continue to deliver
on our promises in our constant endeavour to bring you a product
par excellence. We havent created a lot of hype for
this issue, but I still think that birthdays and anniversaries
merit celebration. As we celebrate our second anniversary,
we look ahead into a bright future. The worst is over... and
business travel is beginning to bounce back, even though full
recovery could be months away. With the lifting of the travel
advisories and business travellers taking to the skies just
as before, theres no doubt that business travel will
come roaring back. Growth and diversification has seen the
emergence of new branded travel products. Concepts that were
erstwhile viewed solely as health related have now become
an integral part of travel. Spas, spa resorts and even spa
business hotels have today mushroomed all over the country!
The spa environment is designed for the R factor
- relax, refresh and rejuvenate - the business travel mantra.
Toasting to your health, we uncork some of the new world
wine countries to give you a taste of the vintage wines from
South Africa, Australia and Switzerland. Since no celebration
is complete without feasting, savour the culinary delights
of Asias premier gourmet capital - Singapore. Providing
Capital insight on Delhi, we take you through the metamorphosis
of Indias political hub, now an aspiring commercial
capital. Over the past year, Express Business Traveller too
has undergone a metamorphosis of sorts, with a complete facelift
in layout, design, editorial content and a continuously evolving
profile. What has remained unchanged though is our dedication
to deliver on our promises and to meet all your requirements.
While the magazine has traditionally looked Forward, please
indulge us for the moment, on the occasion of our second anniversary,
while we look Back and thank many of the people and organisations
who have made this past year such a rewarding experience,
and most of all you - our readers.
Cheers To Our Spatacular Success!
