On this occasion, Ajay Awtaney, the founder-editor of LiveFromALounge.com said, “The Blue Medallion will celebrate the best of the travel and lifestyle business in a first-of-its-kind awards programme that makes a comprehensive attempt to highlight The Choice of the Indian Traveller and recognise the effort of the organisations that power our travel.”
Shipra Baranwal, the co-founder of LiveFromALounge.com, added, “With everything that happened over 2020, there is no better time to recognise the efforts of the travel and lifestyle industry which kept their spirits up and marched on in spite of the difficult circumstances.
