The much awaited 12th edition of the Experiential Planner MICE & Destination Weddings Roadshow is finally underway! The Experiential Planner is India’s leading platform for outbound MICE and wedding planners to connect with destinations, hotels, venues and DMCs across the globe.
The Roadshow kicked-off from Kolkata on 7th November with a B2B luncheon at the Taj Bengal, Alipore. The Eastern region of India , led by Kolkata, has the potential to become a $3 trillion regional economy and account for over a quarter of the national GDP by 2035, says a report by the domestic rating agency Smera Ratings. The Kolkata region saw a 200 per cent jump in FDI inflows in the first half of FY16, most prominently in the Information technology (IT) industry. This booming economy opens the door for a potential MICE market waiting to be captured.
The EPEX Roadshow, thus, couldn’t have come at a better time. At this event, some of the most popular destinations around the world presented their CVB services to an exclusive set of top 50 pre-evaluated and selected buyers from corporations and agencies.
Here’s a glimpse of the event in progress:
