Dear Reader,

Dubai has been an ev­er­green MICE des­ti­na­tion, thanks to its easy con­nec­tiv­ity and avail­abil­ity of sur­plus flights, pan-In­dia. It also has easy visa poli­cies, di­verse din­ing op­tions and myr­iad op­tions for In­dian cui­sine, ex­pe­ri­en­tial venue op­tions and large room in­ven­to­ries. We find out more about MICE in dy­namic Dubai. In close pur­suit are other GCC des­ti­na­tions that are con­tin­u­ing to spread their own as­pi­ra­tional pro­grammes to pull-in MICE busi­ness.

Abu Dhabi and Oman have un­veiled their own re­spec­tive ex­hi­bi­tion and con­ven­tion cen­tres, with tiered seat­ing and col­umn-free ex­hi­bi­tion space. Saudi Ara­bia is ex­pand­ing its own ex­hi­bi­tion and con­ven­tion com­plex in Riyadh while Abu Dhabi and Qatar are sub­stan­tially ad­vanc­ing their air­port in­fra­struc­ture. Ras Al Khaimah is an­other novel and trend­ing wed­ding des­ti­na­tion this sea­son owing to its easy ac­ces­si­bil­ity from Dubai, fab­u­lous weather and great ho­tel in­fra­struc­ture. We tell you the tale of plan­ning a spec­tac­u­lar wed­ding in Ras Al Khaimah at the Wal­dorf As­to­ria.

The Jal Ma­hot­sav (wa­ter fes­ti­val) was or­gan­ised by the Mad­hya Pradesh Tourism Depart­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (MPTDC). While the state has a huge po­ten­tial to give a boost to the tourism sec­tor, the fest has proven to be an ideal get­away for en­thused trav­ellers (both busi­ness and leisure), meet­ings on house­boats, ad­ven­ture seek­ers (air, land, and wa­ter ac­tiv­i­ties), is­land ex­plor­ers within the dam and much more. We ex­plore more in a fea­ture ar­ti­cle.

The first place that un­doubt­edly comes to one's mind on hear­ing nightlife in In­dia is of course Goa. And to en­sure tighter se­cu­rity norms the gov­ern­ment is mak­ing sure that tourists feel safe and se­cure. Be­ing among the top five des­ti­na­tions for MICE in In­dia, Goa is poised to con­trib­ute fur­ther to the global MICE in­dus­try which is worth US $4.8 bil­lion. Also, Goa is In­dia’s lead­ing wed­ding and hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tion, an­nu­ally, around 700 wed­dings take place in Goa on an av­er­age. This also ex­plains the wide pop­u­lar­ity that the state en­joys among trav­ellers.

Tech­nol­ogy in the work­place prac­ti­cally elim­i­nates space and time and can help fa­cil­i­tate bet­ter busi­ness. Shivani Misri Sad­hoo shares tips for the same.
