ixigo Goes Offline With Mixigo

PR Newswire | 31 Jul, 2013
NEW DELHI: ixigo.com, India's leading travel planning and search engine, launched a unique community initiative "mixigo" - an offline mixer for travelers to network and share their travel experiences. The first mixigo was held in Gurgaon at the ixigo office on 26th July 2013, where travel enthusiasts from all walks of life came together to attend the session on 'How to travel abroad on a shoestring budget' by Ansoo Gupta, a renowned travel expert and media professional. The event was a success with more details available at http://blog.ixigo.com/2013/07/mixigo-when-the-travellers-met.html.

mixigo is an initiative by ixigo to get like-minded travel enthusiasts together to discuss and benefit from each other's experiences and knowledge in a conducive environment. "ixigo's vision is to simplify the lives of travelers. We believe that the most trustworthy travel information comes from the experience of other travelers," said Aloke Bajpai, CEO and Co-founder at ixigo. "mixigo is an effort in this direction and will serve as a platform for travelers to mix, connect and inspire each other to discover great places, explore new destinations and travel smart."

The first session focused on 'how to plan international holidays on a shoestring budget' and saw active participation from more than 30 participants who attended the session and a few others who joined the conversation over video hangouts. The discussion was followed by an interactive session where people shared their desires to travel to different places and talked about the challenges, learnings and enrichment travel has brought to their lives.

After witnessing an overwhelming response to first mixigo, ixigo plans to take mixigo to travellers across India through mixigo sessions in more cities and plans to get more travel experts onboard its fast growing community initiative. In addition to this, thousands of travelers have already contributed photos, comments, answers and tips to ixigo's trip planner platform - http://www.ixigo.com/leaderboard.
