MUMBAI: On the 28th & 29th of July 2016, the 4th edition of the MICE India & Luxury Travel Congress welcomed buyers of MICE & Luxury Travel from across the country to meet over 40 MICE specialists suppliers from all around the world, at the St. Regis Mumbai, India.
The congress was hailed as one of the most business-focused platforms in India, having hosted more than 300 attendees representing India’s leading corporations, travel agencies, film production houses and destination wedding planning companies, along with travel and hospitality suppliers that represented over 40 destinations across the globe, says a release.
Ackash Jain, Director, QnA International, organizers of the MILT Congress, said, “With a total of 2,250 pre-arranged and on-site meetings held over the course of the two days, the congress provided the perfect platform to do business.”
According to a Luxury Buyer from Yash Raj Films, one of the biggest film production houses in India, “The MILT Congress was one of the best-organized events related to travel and tourism that I have attended. I got to meet a whole lot of individuals from the travel fraternity that I had not met before and they showcased newer destinations and locations that we can shoot our next lot of films in. I hope QnA wonderfully continues bridging the gap between the film producers and the travel fraternity in the years to come.”
“Being recognized as the strongest B2B platform focused on MICE & Luxury travel from India, the pre-arranged meetings scheduled resulted in the generation of immense business opportunities for all the global suppliers that came down for the event, along with a number of deals being closed on site”, added Ackash Jain.

Echoing similar sentiments, one of our esteemed suppliers for MILT – Atout France, the Tourism Board of France, said that the MILT Congress is one of the most qualitative MICE events “ever” with brilliant coordination and good quality meetings.
The congress is focused on bringing forth the strength of Indian MICE & Luxury Travel by highlighting the current and upcoming trends in the industry, along with practical experiences shared by key industry leaders to provide an extensive insight into the market mentality of Indian buyers.
