GICPL’s annual Coffee Table Books have brought to the fore the emerging trends on the terra firma of travel-trade as well as the corporate world. The books have been well-received by the corporate world, national and international tourism bodies, hotels and airlines. The first Coffee Table Book was launched in 2007 to mark the 10th anniversary of the company’s flagship magazine: Today’s Traveller. It captured the true essence of the traveller, who is always exploring new frontiers. Thereafter, the subsequent Coffee Table Books launched in 2008, 2009 and 2010 have been trailblazers in the themes selected. The 2008 edition of Coffee Table Book—Today’s Traveller: Bollywood Travel Connection—celebrating 11 years of Today’s Traveller, showcased the crucial link between Bollywood and travel world; the 2009 edition—Today’s Traveller: Corporate Connect—dealt extensively with the travel preferences of the corporate world; and 2010 edition—Today’s Traveller: Business Unusual – Innovation is the key—is an outstanding compilation of innovative business initiatives from India’s leading corporate heads, state and central government ministries, PSUs, tourism bodies and aviation companies. The 2011 Coffee Table Book — In Pursuit of Excellence focuses on how leading organizations in the corporate, hospitality, tourism and aviation sectors strive to create new benchmarks of excellence through product development, marketing, consumer interaction, manpower development and social responsibility.
