Elections might impact market
Monisha Dewan General Manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Gurgaon
Indian MICE market continues to show great growth potential in the domestic and the international market. This trend will continue in the next couple of years. This segment is very important for most hotels that are seriously focussing on their MICE facilities. In 2014, it will be important to see the political climate with the upcoming general elections in April. This could have a temporary impact on the international MICE business. Considering the Indian business resilience, we hope that domestic MICE business will remain uninterrupted. However, the larger impact will be from the country’s volatile economic scenario which is influenced by the global market and our political situation.
