During its participation, Ministry of Tourism delegation interacted with several high-profile opinion leaders and decision makers to reiterate India’s strengths as a MICE destination and emphasize on India`s capabilities of hosting such Conferences and events.

Besides the above, Ministry of Tourism has been continuously promoting India as an emerging MICE destination, particularly after the successful organization of several G20 meetings during its G20 Presidency.  Ministry has also launched ‘Meet in India’, a distinct sub-brand under ‘Incredible India’ to promote the country as a MICE destination.
