Editor The world has become an exotic, mysterious, waiting-to-be-discovered global village. We travel across its face attending meetings, conventions and marts with barely a moment to spare to discover the fun side of the same business city. In MICEtalk we cover not only cities to visit and venues to use for business but also the entertainment quotient that has become a necessary part of every MICE venue. Hotels share with us some of the exciting events and Gala evenings that have taken place within their premises. We visit Spain as a country, Hawaii as a state, Berlin as a city, Konark for its beauty and Abu Dhabi for its excitement. As we move around the world, writing stories about different places and people, we have come to realise how different every town and village is with a character and personality of its own, waiting to be discovered. All of us at MICEtalk would like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers Season’s Greetings and a very happy and successful New Year.
