Chandigarh,26.07.17-Outbound Marketing Pvt Ltd, a specialist in handling outsourced sales & marketing of international hotel chains and overseas tourism destinations, has made its maiden foray into the inbound sector by collaborating with Punjab Tourism as the title sponsor to host “Shivalik Adventure Drive”. This initiative has been undertaken to promote adventure tourism in Punjab. A two day event, it was flagged off on 8th July, 2017 by the Tourism Minister, Mr Navjot Singh Sidhu . The 4*4 had 60 participants from different parts of the country. They started their round from New Chandigarh (Mullahpur). It was a 10 km loop and took 4 hours to complete.  

The participants finished the day at noon. The evening wound up with a dinner at Mohali Golf Range. It was a casual event for paticipants and the organisers to let their hair down and discuss their histrionics of the day. The evening concluded with a lucky draw. Outbound Marketing Pvt Ltd sponsored the prizes for the event: the first prize was a 3 + 1 nights stay at The Meydan Hotel and Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai; the second prize was a three nights stay at the Swiss Belinn Hotel and the third prize was a three nights stay at the Swiss BelHotel, Indonesia; the fourth prize was a two nights stay at Melia Hotels International, Kuala Lumpur; and the fifth prize was a two nights stay at Melia Hotels International, Dubai. Mr Sanjay Sondhi, Jt MD Outbound Marketing Pvt Ltd, presented the prizes to the lucky winners.  

On 9th July, 2017, the drive commenced from the Mirzapur Rest House and looped around the forested area. Extreme caution was taken to not damage the forests. The challenge finished back at the Rest House and a wholesome Punjabi meal was served to one and all. An appropriate end to two days of off-roading…grease and grime being the predominant flavour.
