Ho­tels for MICE

We gen­er­ally re­serve 4 star and 5 star ho­tels that are cen­trally lo­cated in Lon­don. While book­ing ho­tels for our cus­tomers, we con­sider avail­abil­ity of ban­quet spa­ces, sep­a­rate check-in coun­ters, location of the ho­tels and pri­vate break­fast area.

En­ter­tain­ment in Lon­don

We gen­er­ally book unique shows that are of in­ter­est to the cus­tomers; some­times we re­ceive re­quests to add in their itin­er­ary. En­ter­tain­ment op­tions like Broad­way the­atre show boats, night­clubs with DJ and pubs are pop­u­lar amongst MICE groups.

Tier-II cities for MICE

In the ma­jor­ity of the cases, most of the events and con­fer­ences are held in Lon­don it­self. How­ever, it is surely cost ef­fec­tive to con­duct the events in Tier II cities in UK.

UK as a des­ti­na­tion for MICE

Pre­dom­i­nantly, cor­po­rates have been ask­ing for Lon­don as a stand­alone des­ti­na­tion with sep­a­rate itin­er­ar­ies and ex­pe­ri­ences cre­ated in and around Lon­don. We have also wit­nessed a grow­ing trend of cor­po­rates re­quest­ing for Lon­don in com­bi­na­tion with Scot­land and com­bin­ing their in­cen­tive pro­grammes with sport­ing events.
