Rhea Saran - Bangalore Literature Festival (BLF)


A journalist and storyteller for almost 15 years, Rhea led the launch of Condé Nast’s first print title in the Middle East in 2013, along with the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards, held as a red-carpet gala attended by leading industry stalwarts. As the host of an annual luxury travel forum and an invited guest speaker on industry trends, Rhea is often called upon to present to and advise tourism boards, hospitality giants and key decision-makers in the luxury arena. In 2016, she oversaw the launch of the brand’s website and other digital extensions, and in the next step forward, has taken on the role of video presenter in short films, commissioned by clients, that showcase the world through the eyes of a travel insider. Previously, Rhea spent nearly 6 years at GQ India, and worked at various publications in New York City, including the American edition of Condé Nast Traveler. She is the author of a novel, Girl Plus One, published in 2010 by Random House.
