Bangla Govt to project Kolkata as MICE hotspot
The State Tourism Department has plans to project Kolkata as a hotspot for MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and events) tourism.
The department’s principal secretary made this comment at a conclave arranged by the India Convention Promotion Bureau (ICPB) at the state-of-the-art Biswa Bangla Convention Centre in New Town on August 30.
He also mentioned that Bangla in general has a big potential to grow MICE tourism and the State Government was making all efforts to make that a reality.
He also said that if the number of direct flights with some parts of world could be increased, then it would be a plus point for the tourism sector.
The State Government is looking into business tourism very seriously and is going all out to formulate strategies for making it a success.
