Mumbai: FCm Travel Solutions’ Australasian-based entertainment travel brand Stage and Screen Travel Services has established operations in India as part of its global expansion strategy. The company will be providing travel and logistics management to India’s film and television, sports, performing arts, music, fashion and media sectors.
Stage and Screen Travel is the first Asia-Pacific-based entertainment travel specialist to operate in Indian market and offer international service capabilities and reach. Stage and Screen Travel global leader Gregory Lording said that India’s Bollywood phenomenon has helped drive a growing need for Stage and Screen’s services in the country.
"India has become one of the strongest emerging markets for entertainment travel services. The country has also experienced significant foreign direct investment in its media, entertainment and sporting industries," Lording said. "We believe that it is the right time for Stage and Screen to enter India as the sporting sector is set to boom with major events in the pipeline," he added.
