IBTM India announces The Venetian Macao as Premier Partner

India - The Venetian Macao, a five-star luxury integrated resort, in Macau, has chosen IBTM India as a major partnership this year as part of the brand’s attendance at the event, set to take place at the ITC Grand Chola Hotel, Chennai from 3-5 September.

The IBTM India Premier Partnership for The Venetian Macao, considered as a top leisure and business destination internationally, is part of the all-suite resort’s marketing objectives to achieve maximum awareness for its meetings and events facilities within the Indian market.

Brendon Elliott, vice president of sales and resort marketing, Cotai Strip Macao, commented: "The Venetian Macao is delighted to be the official premier partner of IBTM India, as we continue our investment and brand awareness as Asia’s leading integrated resort for business and leisure within one of our most important markets, India. IBTM India provides The Venetian Macao and its sister properties at Cotai Strip Resorts Macao (including Conrad Macao, Sheraton Hotel Macao and Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central) the opportunity to connect with existing and potential clients, who are looking for the ultimate meetings experience in an informal yet structured network environment.

"It is important in a very competitive destination market place to remain top of mind to existing trade partners whilst developing new relationships and opportunities. The Venetian Macao is still very much a believer that people buy from people and participation at IBTM India reaffirms our position of connecting with our customers within their local market. After successfully hosting the prestigious IIFA Awards in 2009 and 2013, we believe that The Venetian Macao’s partnership with IBTM 2014 will further highlight the importance we place in the Indian meetings market," Elliott added.

Shinu Pillai, project manager IBTM India and Africa, commented: "We are delighted to have The Venetian Macao as the Premier Partner at this year’s event which is testament to the importance of IBTM India for companies that want to establish themselves as leading brands within the meetings industry in India and globally."

Following the successful launch of IBTM India last year, as an exclusive invitation-only event, this edition will once again bring together 100 pre-qualified international and Indian buyers and exhibitors over a table-top environment at a 1:1 ratio. The 2.5 days will offer high-quality business meetings, education and networking events. Some 2,500 pre-scheduled appointments were conducted at IBTM India 2013, and this is set to increase to 3,600 this year.
