Agra on the MICE Map Clarks Shiraz

Clarks Shiraz, a five-star ho­tel in Agra, com­bines busi­ness with plea­sure, style with sub­stance, form with func­tion. Lo­cated 2 km from the Taj Ma­hal, in the heart of Agra, and yet free from its din and bus­tle, The Clarks Shiraz is just 7 km from the Airpo

Ru­pak Gupta, Joint Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Clarks Group of Ho­tels, shares his views on in­creas­ing MICE op­por­tu­ni­ties in Agra, “MICE is an in­te­gral part of our busi­ness. We want to in­crease this seg­ment and are gear­ing up the ho­tel to at­tract more of this traf­fic. We’re work­ing to­wards in­creas­ing meet­ing space with a new con­ven­tion hall large enough to host 1500 people, di­vis­i­ble into three parts. We’re go­ing to have it ready for use by the sum­mer. I am also con­fi­dent about Agra emerg­ing as a pop­u­lar MICE venue since the dol­lar ef­fect has caused MICE plan­ners to fo­cus on do­mes­tic des­ti­na­tions to save their bud­gets. Go­ing to Agra now, takes as much time as it takes to reach Mane­sar, with the new Ya­muna Xpress way . It’s a clean, quick and re­fresh­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with short travel times and more flex­i­bil­ity.” Throw­ing light on their strat­egy to in­vite more MICE, he adds, “MICE plan­ners need to work in ad­vance. We’re look­ing for­ward to re­vers­ing the trend of just book­ing for peak sea­son well in time. If a cor­po­rate books both for the sea­son of sum­mer and win­ter we of­fer very at­trac­tive rates. More­over, with events like the lit­er­ary fest, an art cin­ema fest, Zakir Hus­sain play­ing in the ho­tel, we have so much to at­tract tourists to the ho­tel. It’s now Agra’s time to be in the lime­light.”
