The event gave us the opportunity to meet purchase managers and decision makers of hotels who we generally aren’t able to reach.

Very focused event and I got to meet only the people I wanted to. My team will be following up with the leads and potentials we got here.

It was an opportunity to meet important people in the industry. Quality and not quantity is what the event was focused on, which is not seen in most events.

Excellent concept and better than normal exhibitions. One-to-one meetings give better mileage in terms of actual business and good return on investment.

One-to-one meetings were fantastic. Meeting the right people in a right platform was the highlight of the Congress.
