Ex­hi­bi­tions and events are a grow­ing phenomenon in In­dia as is travel. But when travel and wed­dings com­bine, you get an ex­hi­bi­tion which is the first of its kind. In­dia’s first travel wed­ding show was held at Gurgaon bring­ing to­gether the plan­ners and buy­ers in a se­ries of meet­ings. And as­so­ci­a­tions have been work­ing to give a boost to the meet­ings in­dus­try. In­dian Ex­hi­bi­tions, Con­fer­ences and Events Ser­vices As­so­ci­a­tion feels that the meet­ings in­dus­try has huge po­ten­tial and some new poli­cies would help the seg­ment. Some lo­ca­tions are pop­u­lar and oth­ers are ex­otic. Most events are held in lo­ca­tions where it’s eas­ier to get more peo­ple to at­tend with ease and there is easy ac­ces­si­bil­ity. But some­times one wants to go and do some­thing dif­fer­ent. That is some­times a world away from a world has an ap­peal. And when it’s some­thing as ex­otic as an is­land, then it makes MICE more in­ter­est­ing. Though travel is nor­mally by air, it’s the in­fra­struc­ture that gives it a time­less ap­peal. Beach re­sorts on these is­lands are quite pop­u­lar. In this is­sue, we bring you three is­lands that have good fa­cil­i­ties for MICE—The Philip­pines, Phillip Is­land in Aus­tralia and Jeju Is­land. With a jet-set­ting life and shorter at­ten­tion span, it’s dif­fi­cult to keep mil­len­ni­als en­gaged. But our ex­pert Darren Ed­wards is giv­ing five tips for keep­ing them en­gaged at trade shows. On the other front, there is a right way to eat with chop­sticks. It’s not as tough as it looks, says Shi­tal Kakkar Mehra. Shivani Misri Sad­hoo of­fers some cru­cial tips on how to keep long last­ing pro­fes­sional re­la­tion­ships. She shares how to han­dle ‘el­e­va­tor meet­ings’ which is pretty in­ter­est­ing as catch­ing some­one’s at­ten­tion in a few sec­onds is not an easy task. And re­tain­ing that at­ten­tion is even tougher.
