Micetalk - - HOTEL TALK - Megha Paul

As the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try in Ben­galuru evolves be­yond its con­ven­tional IT City, Vi­nesh Gupta, Gen­eral Manager, Möven­pick Ho­tel & Spa Ban­ga­lore spoke to MICE Talk about how the ho­tel is tap­ping the grow­ing cor­po­rate clien­tele in de­fence, food pro­cess­ing and other emerg­ing seg­ments in the re­gion. The Make in In­dia cam­paign, con­cep­tu­alised by Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi to trans­form In­dia into a global man­u­fac­tur­ing hub, has been a wel­come move. Most of the de­fence com­pa­nies in In­dia are head­quar­tered in Ben­galuru. Vi­nesh Gupta, Gen­eral Manager, Möven­pick Ho­tel & Spa Ban­ga­lore said there is lot of de­mand from in­ter­na­tional de­fence com­pa­nies that have ten­ders, projects or plants set up in In­dia and are look­ing at new op­por­tu­ni­ties. “This year has be­gun on a good note for our ho­tel. We have al­ready seen an in­crease in oc­cu­pancy due to this devel­op­ment. We ex­pect a growth of 18 per cent in 2015. This devel­op­ment is ex­pected to boost ADRs and oc­cu­pan­cies for many other ho­tels in Ben­galuru as well,” he said. Möven­pick Ho­tel & Spa Ban­ga­lore is ex­tremely close to the Ban­ga­lore In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre (BIEC), Man­pho Con­ven­tion Cen­ter and Ye­la­hanka Air­base. “In fact, we are the clos­est to the Ye­la­hanka Air Base, which also hosts the spec­tac­u­lar Ye­la­hanka Aero Show,” Gupta
