Hop­ing for bet­ter fu­ture prospects

Micetalk - - COVER STORY -

Him­mat Anand, Founder, Tree of Life Re­sorts, states, “The dol­lar has had a def­i­nite im­pact on out­bound travel and this has re­sulted in a growth in the do­mes­tic busi­ness. This is more true for ho­tels and re­sorts op­er­at­ing in the lux­ury seg­ment and we have cer­tainly seen our do­mes­tic busi­ness share in­creased by about 15 per cent as com­pared to projection­s. More­over, So­ci­ety of In­cen­tive and Travel Ex­ec­u­tives (SITE) In­dia Chap­ter has taken some pos­i­tive steps in not only pro­mot­ing In­dia as a MICE des­ti­na­tion, but also cre­at­ing an aware­ness of this im­por­tant but ig­nored seg­ment in the coun­try. They con­tinue to or­gan­ise work­shops to ed­u­cate the travel trade and are try­ing to get one of the in­ter­na­tional meets of the As­so­ci­a­tion held in In­dia in the near fu­ture. These steps should hope­fully show some pos­i­tive re­sults in the fu­ture.”
