Hyderabad is now a hotspot for International events
~ Several prestigious national and international events now book Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC)  ~

Hyderabad,India.October, 2008: Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC), India’s best convention facility, recently won the prestigious National Tourism Award for the year 2006-07 in the category, ‘Best Convention Centre’ and is truly living up
to it.

The state of the art Hyderabad International Convention Centre along with the country’s first Greenfield international airport, have together carved a niche for Hyderabad as a events destination. While Hyderabad is more than 400 years old, it is at the forefront of the resurgence of India’s economic engine and highlights the new Indian growth driven by knowledge and education. Hyderabad is a perfect example of the harmony of old and new which defines modern India. The city has also been identified as one among the top
20 cities of sustainable future according to a world study initiated by the influential New York-based Ethisphere Institute evaluating cities on their efforts to improve sustainability including public transport, local economy, environment, health, education, recreation and

living standards.The other cities featuring in the report include New York, Toronto, Frankfurt, Singapore, Cape Town, Abu Dhabi, Hyderabad, London and Curitiba in Brazil.

HICC opened in January 2006 with the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas event. Since then, it has attracted several national and international events including Asian Development Bank’s 39th AGM in 2006, International Astronautical Congress in 2007, Bancon 2006, World Map Congress 2006, National Opthalmological Meet 2007, International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence in 2007, Suntec Days in 2007 & 2008, Bioasia in 2006, 2007 and 2008, Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive & Sexual Health in 2007, etc.

“Hyderabad is all set to start its Convention Bureau shortly, the first of its kind in the country. ‘Visit Hyderabad’, as the bureau would be named, will focus on marketing the city on a global platform providing further impetus to the city’s MICE impetus,” says Jayesh Ranjan, Managing Director, Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation.
