Thomas Cook trades higher on the bourses
In a bid to commemorate World Tourism Day, Thomas Cook (India) has launched the Thomas Cook Travel Quest - India’s first national travel quiz for school students. With over 50% of India under the age of 25 years and the country set to become the world's youngest nation by 2020 (with an average age of 29 years), this changing young demographic with growing aspirations seeks exposure to a global curriculum and opportunities that are increasingly being built into the curriculum of progressive schools. The contest is open to school students across India from classes 6 to 9, with a six month extensive outreach starting in mid October 2014, across 16 cities (Mumbai, Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Jaipur, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Cochin, Pune, Ahmedabad, Indore, Dehradun, Kolkata, Raipur and Bhubaneshwar): a written qualifying test across the 1200 schools, followed by qualifiers to determine City, State, Zonal and eventually National winners. The four zonal winners will contest for the title prize at the grand finale, which will be held in Mumbai during Q1 2015. For this unique initiative, Thomas Cook India has partnered with Greycaps India, Asia’s largest on stage quizzing and knowledge services company & curated by noted quizmaster Giri Pickbrain with the focus being on History & Geography. Thomas Cook is the largest integrated travel and travel related financial services company in the country offering a broad spectrum of services that include Foreign Exchange, Corporate Travel, MICE, Leisure Travel, Insurance, Visa & Passport services and E-Business.
