Due to its central location in Europe, Vienna over the last few years has emerged as a popular destination all over the world, attracting not just global outbound MICE but also the thriving entertainment industry of many countries such as India. One of the most popular Hindi films of the recent times, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was shot in the scenic locales of Vienna because of which the destination became a major touristic attraction for the country’s population..
Vienna over the last decade has also developed a taste for the incredible ‘Big Fat Indian Weddings’. To name a few, JSW scion, Parth Jindal’s nuptials rang through the Austrian capital, and recently the destination played host to the Madrid based businessman, Harish Fabiani’s family as his nephew, Navin married Dubai-based Sonam Vaswani (daughter of Sunil Vaswani of Stallion Group).
Commenting on the potential of the Indian MICE market, Verena Jandak-Hollenthoner, CMP, Marketing Manager USA, Canada, Australia, India, Vienna Convention Bureau said, “The Vienna Convention Bureau has actively promoted Vienna as meetings and incentive destination to the Indian Market since more than 10 years. We are happy to say that after a few years of business development, we have been able to establish Vienna as an attractive destination for our Indian clients. The business coming out of India to our city is ever increasing”.
“We achieved this through building personal relationships with our Indian clients by visiting them in their offices and meeting them at local meetings industry events. The professional and outstanding work and business relationship with tmf dialogue marketing & EVENTFAQS Media has given us many great opportunities to meet new clients and strengthen existing business contacts. We are big fans of EPEX /WOW, which is for us the perfect platform to promote Vienna in India. Over the last 3 years, Vienna has also been discovered by wedding planners, and we are proud to have been chosen for a couple of very high-profile Indian weddings in the past years. We are very excited to participate at EPEX / WOW in 2019. It will be very special for us, as we will be bringing 5 partners to Delhi this year”.
