Mizar Conventions conducted its roadshow in New Delhi and Mumbai where they met key travel trade partners.
Maddalena Fumagalli, Sales and Event Planner, Mizar Conventions, said, “We are promoting Lake Como and Milan in India as we believe that these are new destinations for the Indian market to organise weddings in Italy. We will also look at promoting the destination for MICE. Last year Indian visitors to Italy grew in large numbers for all segments including MICE and high-end leisure and this year we can expect a growth of 10-20 per cent from the Indian market.” Fumagalli informed that the company organized one Indian wedding of 300 guests in Capri and one in Lake Como last year. “We offer villas that can accommodate 1000 pax for events and weddings,” she added.
Viviane Stephan, Director, VS Luxe Promotion, who works with Castadiva Resort and Spa at Lake Como points out that they have been working with the Indian travel trade. “At this event we hope to inform our partners about what their clients can do at Lake Como in terms of special events, weddings and corporate travel,” she said. Castadiva catered to Indian honeymooners and families in 2016 who contributed to 8 per cent of their total guests.
