Dear Reader,

Micetalk - - EDITORIAL -

Travel agents and tour op­er­a­tors in the MICE and busi­ness travel in­dus­try are smil­ing… there is much to cel­e­brate with the ru­pee find­ing its foot­ing again and cor­po­rate bud­gets open­ing up, al­low­ing for bet­ter spend on em­ploy­ees and sales of­fices. And, Barak Obama’s visit to In­dia with a large del­e­ga­tion of in­dus­tri­al­ists can only help fur­ther the cause of tourism. In­cen­tive travel plan­ners and or­gan­is­ers are look­ing for new shores to take their MICE groups. Canada be­ing a long-haul des­ti­na­tion with long travel time, has not been the most popular un­til re­cently for cor­po­rate groups. How­ever, with Air Canada launch­ing di­rect flights to Toronto from Delhi start­ing Novem­ber 2015 and the com­fort fac­tor that Canada holds for In­di­ans, there should be a lot of move­ment to this re­gion. It’s al­ways nice to know that the con­ven­tion cen­tre where your event is be­ing held is en­vi­ron­ment friendly and re­spon­si­bly green. We checked out on venues round the world that sym­bol­ise ‘Green’. Mu­nich is fast be­com­ing one of the most popular and hap­pen­ing cities in the world, whether it is as the fi­nal des­ti­na­tion or in tran­sit through Mu­nich Air­port, which has more to of­fer in style and ex­pe­ri­ence than a town by it­self; it even has good ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions and meet­ing fa­cil­i­ties (large and small) if it is re­quired in tran­sit. Also, read the views of our ex­pert panel on how not to lose your iden­tity in a group, how to im­prove your knowl­edge on wines and how to or­der red wine at a busi­ness din­ner. As al­ways, there’s plenty of news, opin­ions on in­dus­try trends and events.

En­joy read­ing
