Leela to manage Gandhinagar’s convention and exhibition centre from April 1

Talking about the plans of The Leela Group of Hotels, Aejaz Shaikh, General Manager, Leisure, Leela Palaces Hotels and Resorts said, “We have nine hotels in India now, out of which six are business hotels in prominent destinations. We are looking at a huge expansion spree, from April 1, we are taking over the management of Mahatma Gandhi convention and exhibition center, that is Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar.  It is the Prime ministers pet project there. Right now, we are handling only the convention centre, but in a year and a half we have a 300 + rooms hotel also coming up, which will tentatively be operational by 2019. We have another property in Jaipur that should be operational by next year. Another hotel is coming up in Bengaluru too and Agra is also on the cards.”
