At the Mosaic Conference, in Barcelona, Spain, IVA was chosen as the Role Model amongst two thousand Travel Agents for an industry as vibrant and active as Travel and Tourism.

The chairperson for IVA, Ms. Indira Varma was recognized as an innovative entrepreneur for being a pioneer, who despite of being home bound, excelled tremendously. But that’s not all. The industry has an opinion about IVA and that works as an encouragement for this leading institution. Here are some of the industry leaders opining on IVA and the very recent congratulatory messages on being decorated by the Government of Spain with The award of The Isabel La Catolica Cross.

Huge Congratulations Indira ji… this is a great honour not only for you but for our entire travel industry and indeed for India. I may have to leave for London on 1st March & may not be personally present, but in mind spirit thought & prayer I will be with you. My best wishes & warmest regards.
