SKICC working out plan to project J&K as MICE destination

Located on the banks of the world famous Dal lake in Srinagar, the summer capital of the state, SKICC is one of the premium venues in the country for holding world-class events and conventions.

Keen to project the state as a major destination for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE), the Sheri-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) is working on a plan to woo global and Indian companies to the Valley.

"We will showcase Srinagar as the most exciting MICE destination of Asia. We are set to woo global and Indian companies to the Valley in a big way," Sheri-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) director G N Qasba told reporters.

SKICC has put together a business brochure to promote and showcase the Sheri-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre as one of the best MICE destinations in Asia. The international standard convention centre has facilities for holding meetings, incentives, conventions, exhibitions and events of international face-value, Mr Qasba said.

Located on the banks of the world famous Dal lake in Srinagar, the summer capital of the state, SKICC is one of the premium venues in the country for holding world-class events and conventions ranging from corporate conferences and annual general meetings to launches, film releases and other events, he said. Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand and Malaysia are often preferred as MICE destinations by Indian companies due to distinct advantages like short travelling time, world-class infrastructure and an abundance of tourist attractions, all at competitive rates. Sri Lanka, too, offers very competitive rates for corporates in terms of airfare and conference facilities for medium to large groups.

M&M to open second phase of bookings for new SUV for 10 days

M&M has decided to undertake a draw in the next round of bookings in case the requests for the latest Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) from exceed 7,200.

Leading SUV maker Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd (M&M) said it will open the second phase of bookings for XUV500 for 10 days from 25 January 2012.

The company has decided to undertake a draw in the next round of bookings in case the requests for the latest Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) from the M&M stable exceed 7,200.

This will help in ensuring a reasonable waiting period for the customers selected in a fair and transparent manner, the company said.

The draw process will be validated by professional services firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India Pvt Ltd (DTTIPL) and details will be announced on the brand's website, Vivek Nayer, senior vice president-marketing, automotive division, M&M, said at a conference.

The bookings for the XUV500 had to be temporarily deferred just post-launch as four months' production of over 8,000 units was sold out within just 10 days in five cities, Mr Nayer said.

Meanwhile, speaking in Ahmedabad, another M&M executive said delivery of XUV500 is expected to commence from mid-February 2012.

"We shall close bookings for XUV500 on 3 February 2012. Thereafter, we shall have a draw process. Our endeavour is to announce the winners before 15 February 2012, and deliveries shall commence very soon after that," M&M Vice-President (Sales) Vijay Nakra said.

In the late afternoon, Mahindra & Mahindra was trading at around Rs680 per share on the Bombay Stock Exchange, 3.68% down from the previous close.
