Buyer Feedback

The MTM+LLTM has been very useful, as I got an opportunity to be part of the knowledge sharing session, and could meet many MICE and related service providers at one place. One of the biggest take away from this event were destinations like Manipur, which we generally do not get to see in such events. Also, we have started interactions with quite a few service providers and hotels, such as OLA, Clarks, StayBazaar.com, and Intercontinental Hotel Group.

    - Ajay Bhatt, Associate Vice President Administration & Facilities, Godrej Industries Ltd

"Events like these help in keeping pace with a fast moving industry like the Travel and Hospitality industry. It also helps to connect and network with industry peers which eventually results in significant benefits and savings for the organisation that we work with. MTM+LLTM is one such event where a lot of views, ideas and information on best practices were exchanged and knowledge shared to benefit the participants. They also help organisations and suppliers close RFPs and gain from their time spent at the venue."
