eRevMax Tigers in search of Royal Bengal Tigers


We, the eRevMax Connect team in Kolkata decided to bring 2013 to a dramatic end - we decided to have a rendezvous with the Royal Bengal Tigers. So, off we went to Sunderbans - considered the home to these tigers. The Sunderbans are a part of the world's largest delta formed by the mighty rivers Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. Situated on the lower end of the Gangetic West Bengal, it is also the world’s largest estuarine forest. The Sunderbans is criss-crossed by hundreds of creeks and tributaries.

We started early on a cold December morning from Kolkata, and after a 4 hour bus journey, we got on the boat that would take us to the forests. As the boat sailed through the river, we were mesmerized by the greenery around the mangroves forest. In just 3 hrs we were out from the ugly concrete jungle and entered the beautiful greenery of a natural jungle.



We were excited when we found a giant crocodile resting on the bank of rivers, deers grazing grass and birds chirping all around. While moving slowly on the river, we were all praying and hoping that we would get lucky and get a chance to see the tigers in all their glory - but alas - it was not to be!

We had to content ourselves with the crocs and deers - which in itself was a hell of an experience. The whole journey was an eye-opener as we realized that there is so much life and greenery in these jungles. It was an amazing experience - by the evening as the sun turned red,our boat reached the river bank and we left Sunderbans with the promise to return again soon to this green Delta.

TigerTime by eRevMax turned out to be a hit with hoteliers and OTAs

While WTM ended a month back, we are still recovering from its success. The TigerTime sessions we organized with leading OTAs proved to be a hit at WTM 2013. The sessions generated significant interest among the travel industry with a ‘standing room only’ turnout.

Agoda, GTA and Ostrovok - all part of the eRevMax Channel Ecosystem - delivered relevant presentations to hoteliers looking for superior connectivity, new distribution markets and updates on new technology developments.


TigerTime by eRevMax was the perfect platform for us to present our value proposition to a varied set of attendees. It helped us showcase how hoteliers can benefit from our advanced XML connectivity and how they can reach out to our diverse client base. Apart from being a great branding exercise, this platform put us directly in touch with key decision makers who can understand the value of our offerings and with whom we can take our business forward,” said Pavel Babenko, Director for International Markets, Ostrovok.

Here is a sneak peek into some interesting moments captured from WTM 2013
