India International Hospitality Expo 2018 concluded successfully

India International Hospitality Expo (IHE 18) started out with a grand vision – to become the Biggest Hospitality Show in Asia. As the curtain falls on the first chapter of India’s largest sourcing hub for hospitality, retail, baking, housekeeping and F&B industry, it can be proudly said that they are on the right path of making hospitality industry a catalyst for economic growth in our country.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal said “The Government of India is aiming to achieve one per cent share in world’s international tourist arrivals by 2020, and two per cent share by 2025, and we need such platforms that can act as a trailblazer for the hospitality industry in the country. I wish India Expo Centre & Mart, as well as IHE 18, the very best in their vision to create the top hospitality show in Asia.”

Being true to their vision, IHE 18 along with its stellar board of industry stalwarts with over 40+ years of experience in the hospitality industry turned out to be a powerful networking forum. This show played a host to celebrated influencers such as CEOs, GMs, executive chefs, hotel-chain owners, F&B managers, HODs of engineering, housekeeping and purchase function, distributors/wholesalers, procurement managers, designers, the all-important frontline hospitality personnel’s, and many more.

IHE Coneferences,  a conclave spanned over 4 days that had industry leaders sharing their knowledge and experiences with the hospitality fraternity, has its final session on ‘Opportunities for Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy in Wellness Tourism’. The esteemed guests were Dr. Ishwara (Acharya, Jt. Advisor – Yoga, Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India) and Dr. Rajesh Kumar Singh (Director, Sammati Naturopathic WellBeing Centre).
