Lara Dutta launches new office of ExpediaLara Dutta, who seems to be glowing these days after the birth of her baby, was spotted at the launch of the office of US-based travel website, Expedia, in Gurgaon, on Friday night.
The gala evening began with an aerial dance and saw some amazing performances from cultures across the world including Brazil’s samba dance, China’s Shaolin combat and US’ tap dance. Then, Lara took media as well as the guests on a walk across the 42,000 sq. ft. property, designed in a way to represent various global destinations like Las Vegas, Rio De Janeiro, Beijing, Moscow, and Fiji among others.
Talking about the experience, Lara later said, “A walk around the place helps one identify with the thought of Expedia. I was brimming with excitement as we went around each zone that represented a travel destination.”
Explaining the idea behind the entire theme, Vikram Malhi, the country head of Expedia India, said, “Even if you see the office, the areas are named after different cities across the world. We wanted to show people what a journey the world is and the whole set up is based on that.”
“Our brand team worked hard on the launch. We wanted to showcase different cultures in different parts of the world,” he said adding, “We had been thinking about opening an office in India for a long time. We are very committed to India as a market, not only from technology but also from business perspective.”
