Honda NAVi Goa Hunt 2017 event
The GTDC – Honda NAVi Goa Hunt 2017, a fun and adventure activity aimed at exploring the unexplored side of Goa on youth’s most loved and favourite Honda NAVi was flagged off by Minister for Tourism, Government of Goa, Manohar Azgaonkar. A total of 18 renowned journalists and online bloggers from all across India participated in this two-day event riding the swanky Honda NAVi. The teams took on different challenges including fun-filled tasks posed to them en-route and decoded clues to ‘NAVigate’ their way through 10 different stages over two days.
Goa Hunt 2017 was organized by Goa Tourism Development Corporation in association with Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. Speaking at the event, Manohar Azgaonkar said, “Goa Tourism has associated with Honda to organize the Goa Hunt 2017 which will serve as a platform to promote Goa Tourism and its lesser known facets with a wider reach considering the fact that the event has the participation of national media and bloggers. This will help attract more tourists to Goa who will want to explore Goa and its hidden treasures. As the new Minister for Tourism, it is my endeavour to take tourism to greater heights, bring in quality tourism and tourists to the State.”
Azgaonkar flagged off the two-day Goa Hunt 2017 in the presence of Sanjeev C. Gauns Dessai, Director of Tourism and other GTDC officials and those from Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd.
