NIMA targets new MICE destinations for 2017

The Network of Indian MICE Agents (NIMA) is focusing on exploring new MICE destinations in India and abroad. “Every year, we introduce a new destination. In 2016, we promoted Catalonia in Spain. This year, we are on a lookout for a new destination in India and abroad,” said Gajesh Girdar, National Coordinator, NIMA, at a networking event in Delhi. Speaking on the theme for the year 2017, Girdar added, “Every year we come up with some theme, last year, it was ‘More and much more’, and for this year, it is ‘Let’s Connect’.”

NIMA’s initiation of a mobile app, Lets Connect version 1.0, for NIMA’s MICE operators and partners will make it the first travel agent association in India to have one, claims Girdar. Elaborating on the same, he claims, “We will become the first travel agent association of India to come out with a mobile app. We aim to come out with new technologies and ideas. We shall provide training programmes on a pan India basis, specially targeting Tier-II and III cities, focusing on technologies and some unique destinations.”
