Commenting on the theme, Mukesh Jain, GM - Marketing & Communication, Havells said: “Our late founder Qimat Rai Gupta always focused on having larger dreams and striving to accomplish them. We tend to imbibe the same thoughts into ourselves and our dealers. Hence the theme of this year ‘Wahi Soch Naya Josh’ was followed keeping in mind his ideologies and principles. With the same passion and zeal, we plan to take Havells to the next level with renewed enthusiasm.”
The tour officially started on Aug. 11 where all the guests were given gift hampers at the time of their arrival in Turkey. A special candle light dinner was arranged at Portaxe, where guests (in local costumes) were welcomed after cruise orientation.

Special certificates and trophies were handed out to the enchanted winners.
A survey was conducted with the dealers prior to the event, helping Percept ICE to manage and pull together vital information pertaining to their favorite cuisine, colors, songs, dances, art and other elements which helped them to customize and implement a very successful and memorable trip for the guests. Another highlight of the convention was a special radio show created for the guests which included their favorite songs. The guests loved the overall experience, attachment, interactivity and warmth of the chairman with all of them.
