Meetings, Incentives, Conventions & Exhibitions (MICE) market is a fast growing one and has exhibited a huge potential worldwide. It is a recognized fact that international and regional conferences contribute greatly towards building up of mutual goodwill and understanding, encourage interaction between nations, bring tremendous amount of knowledge and frontier technologies particularly for the developing countries.

There is a growing interest amongst tourists to experience the rich culture and heritage of India. With increasing opportunities for holidays and leisure, India is now becoming one of the leading venues for MICE in the region. The MICE infrastructure in the country has been developing rapidly and convention hotels and conference venues of international standards are being set up in cities across the country. With the corresponding expansion in the network of airline operations, and other infrastructure support, India is ready to position and market itself as an important MICE destination.

As mentioned, the prime focus of the Bureau is to disseminate information regarding the infrastructural facilities and related services available in India for organising Meetings, Incentives and Conventions and also to assist tourism industry to effectively market the MICE potential of India in the international markets.

Over the years, India Convention Promotion Bureau (ICPB) has been organizing Conventions India Conclave as an educational and business promotion event. Conventions India Conclave (CIC) is not a traditional association convention, but is regarded to be South Asia’s premier networking event for buyers and sellers in the Indian meetings industry, organized on the patterns of EIBTM Barcelona and IMEX Frankfurt.

The Conclave of 2012 is of special importance, as this is being held in the background of a historic cooperation agreement with TTG Events, a business group of TTG Asia Media as of September 2011, to bring their flagship show IT&CMA and CTW to India as IT&CM India in 2012. To get the maximum advantage to MICE Industry segment, IT&CM India and CIC will run concurrently. This will be a super initiative for Indian MICE and give ICPB and India tremendous visibility and coverage as a destination as well as a key selling tool.
