The two main service areas of the MICE industry in India include — Event Tourism & Event Management.

Event Tourism includes the travel, accommodation and management of business events & networking shows at various destinations across the globe. This provides a substantial business boost to the travel (inter-city and intra-city) & hospitality sector.

A large number of travelers on a daily basis include event managers travelling for managing events and attendees & sponsors travelling to attend the events.

There is also the travel & stay of the various support staff (labour, manpower, service supporters, etc), which contributes significantly to the “budget” travel & stay segment. The travel and stay of such support teams has also led to a rapid rise in the budget stay options such as OYO, Fab Hotels, etc.

The Event Management services include the hosting, managing, co-ordinating and publicizing of business & social events, exhibitions and conferences.

The key stakeholders in the Business Event Management services include: Infrastructure Services (Venues, Hanger Providers & Stand Contractors); Organizers; & Other Support Services (Safety, Security, Manpower, Branding, Audio Visuals, Logistics, Technology Support & Attendee Management, Media & PR, Catering, Entertainment & Engagement).

An increasing number of wedding management, decoration, social event planning & managing companies have been established in the last 5 years with an objective to increase the quality of social events including weddings, engagements, birthday parties, baby showers, pre-wedding events, post wedding events, anniversary celebrations, and much more. The professional planning and execution of such social events has fueled the growth of supporting services such as catering, photography, videography, gifting, decorative themes, etc. These organizations also form an important part of the events industry of India and contribute substantially to the event tourism sector as well as to the growth of venues as MICE destinations.
