Working on the Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi project was indeed an endeavour full of energy, fun and success: VARUN ALBUQUERQUE 

Varun Albuquerque, Director, Alcon Victor Group speaks on the journey of creating a signature hospitality offering in Pune 

What made you look at exploring avenues outside Goa for your Group’s hospitality vertical?

The decision to explore avenues outside Goa for the hospitality vertical was likely driven by a combination of strategic, business, and market factors.

It also stemmed from the fact that operating six resorts and hotels in Goa made us a very regional player, and the absence of a resort or hotel outside Goa made us susceptible to various risks inherent to Goa. Since India itself is a booming market and Pune is close to Goa, we decided to take this opportunity.

Overall, the decision to explore avenues outside Goa for the hospitality vertical likely stems from a combination of seeking new growth opportunities, minimizing risks, leveraging its brand strength, and capitalizing on its expertise in the hospitality industry. It’s a strategic move aimed at positioning the group for long-term success and sustainability.

What were the various challenges you faced to see the dream of Radisson Blue Pune Hinjawadi come to fruition?

Undertaking a project to expand the hospitality vertical outside of Goa for the first time undoubtedly presented the Alcon Victor Group with a range of challenges. However, the group’s ability to overcome these challenges speaks of our resilience, strategic planning, and commitment to success.

The Alcon Victor Group drew on decades of experience and built a dedicated team committed to our core values. Our success in overcoming these obstacles likely contributes to our reputation as a reliable and respected player in the hospitality industry, not only in Goa but also in Pune.

Setting up the Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi project was indeed an endeavour full of energy, fun, and success. However, it was not without its fair share of challenges that the team had to conquer along the way.

The project team drew upon the expertise of experienced professionals, collaborated closely with the Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi team, implemented best practices from the hospitality industry. 

With the enthusiasm and dedication of the team, each challenge was met head-on, transforming the project into an exciting and rewarding journey. The result was not just a successful establishment but a hub of energy, fun, and success that continues to shine brightly as the Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi.
