Discovering Delhi as a Region for MICE Tourism in India
Delhi is garnering quite the attention these days in the global MICE market as one of the well-managed destinations for Corporate Events in India. Reasonably so, since the Indian capital and its nearby regions are dotted with ideal locations, facilities, and cultural offerings that fit a wide range of MICE requirements.
MICE Tourism In India: Delhi Has a Lot to Offer
Being the national capital, Delhi enjoys an upper hand in many respects.
For one, it’s the seat of the central government, which gives the city a unique edge. Regular development and investments from the government, as well as the private sector, has led to plenty of relevant services being accessible in Delhi with ease. For instance, these would include exciting venues, meeting-spaces, top properties & hotel brands, state-of-art technology, smooth air, rail, road, and metro connectivity, efficient support services, and excellent dining options.
Additionally, owing to the government policies dedicated to encouraging MICE tourism in the country, Delhi is home to some of the top Inbound MICE Operators In India.
MICE is currently being valued immensely by the national government as an emerging globalized service industry with high growth potential, large employment opportunities, beneficial innovations, and efficient asset utilization. As a direct result of this realization, the government is actively providing financial support to strengthen the segment of Meetings and Conferences In India by developing larger & more sophisticated international convention centers and tourism-related infrastructure all across the Delhi-NCR region.
Simply put, Delhi has a wide range of offerings for Events, Meetings, and Conferences in India. It’s got a shining history of hosting international events & conventions for over four decades. It’s filled with surprises, unique in its culture, history, and beauty. And, it has something for everyone.
Prominent Locations, Attractions, Venues, & MICE Companies In Delhi Add to Its Charm As the Perfect MICE Destination in India
If we talk about venues, Delhi has some great options, like Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, Siri Fort Auditorium, Indira Gandhi International Centre, Talkatora Stadium, NDMC Convention Centre, Pragati Maidan ITPO, Vigyan Bhawan, Old World Hospitality at India Habitat Centre; not to mention several programs in the pipeline, like the complete overhaul of Pragati Maidan, equipped with uber technological infrastructure.
Delhi is also the base of some of the top national and international hotel brands, including Hyatt Regency, Taj Palace, Leela Palace, Imperial Hotel, the Hilton, the Ashok, Radisson Blu, The Lalit, & Le Meridien, among others.
In addition to these, Delhi’s multi-cultural diversity helps create engaging and exciting itineraries, perfect to be explored post events. It’s closely located to prime tourist attractions like Agra’s Taj Mahal, UNESCO city Jaipur, Lake city Udaipur, wildlife prime-spots like Bandhavgarh National Park & Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, and has many historically and culturally significant places like the Red Fort, Qutab Minar, Humayun’s Tomb, Chandni Chowk, Masterji ki Haveli, etc.
Needless to point out that the Indian Capital has almost every element needed to make a MICE event successful.
It is, however, important to remember that MICE is the fastest-growing tourism segment in India. The economy is rapidly growing, as are the prospects for the MICE industry, because of a constantly multiplying demand for exhibitions, meetings, and events. We should expect exponential growth in the region & upcoming improvements triggered by the government as well as private players in the upcoming times.
