The latest MICE Club 2.0 Meeting, held in Crowne Plaza New Delhi Rohini, 18 September, brought key players from all verticals of the Indian MICE Industry together and resulted in some new thinking for restarting MICE business in the country.
The Club gathering of 30 MICE leaders observed all health and safety norms, with limited numbers, proper sanitisation and mask culture.
The theme of the event was ‘Collaboration mode on’ and a presentation by the Indian Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) outlined the Government’s financial support schemes for funding MSME enterprises.
Corporate Inside Story, a specially curated session, revealed how various corporate houses were sharing plans to restart projects.
The event was also the first physical meet for many, and delegates were clearly thrilled to catch up with each other.
Mr Amit Rana, GM of Crowne Plaza New Delhi Rohini shared: “With travel starting to revive, I think it is the best time to boost our efforts to reignite the MICE segment in alignment with the prevailing government guidelines. Being one of the largest MICE hotels in Delhi NCR, we have been waiting for the right platform to call for the revival of the MICE business not only for hotels but for all significant business segments attached to it, and partnering with MICE Club for MCL 2.0 meet at Crowne Plaza New Delhi Rohini, we have started on a very encouraging note. It was overwhelming to see and hear how everyone including hotels, tourism boards, as well as corporate and government representatives are all willing to come together to restart”.
Product presentations by Jumeirah Hotels, Melia Hotels International and Corinthia Hotels added to the knowledge base of all delegates and inspired them to get ready with better product offerings for when the world is open again to travel.
“At MCL, we are moving ahead with a mission to restart events with safety in mind and adapting all Covid protocols in place. We have to walk the talk, hence we are urging all industry colleagues to come out of the pure virtual world and pass on a message to all stakeholders aligned with the industry especially on the buyer side, that we as industry are ready to restart safely and to take utmost care of you and your partners. Let’s rock again and start a new era of MICE,” added Sachin Manocha, the founder of MCL.
