Jordan An Ideal Host for MICE

In addition to the reliable warm and sunny weather through out the year, Jordan is a land of great history and even greater beauty. Thanks to its outstanding hotels (with international standard meeting and conferencing facilities), exquisite food and vibrant nightlife complemented by availability of many professional MICE planners and genuinely warm and hospitable citizens, the country  is also a great destination for MICE.

Jordan has identified the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) sector as one of the important high-value niche sectors that will advance the growth of its tourism industry. In an interview with TnH, Jordan’s Tourism Minister H.E Nayef Al Fayez recently said, “MICE business from India is extremely important for Jordan. Even though Jordan has already been promoting MICE for some time now, we will be more aggressive and with the help of Jordan Tourism Board, we will make concentrated efforts towards providing full services to big potential markets like India. We will do everything to assist this sector. We have held several high profile events such as the World Economic Forum and we are very confident that soon we will position Jordan on the international map of MICE business.”

WHY JORDAN FOR MICE?

State of the art facilities
In keeping with its role of a world-class MICE destination, Jordan has been quick to invest in its transport infrastructure.  A new state-of-the-art terminal was inaugurated as recently as March 2013. There are many connecting flights from India to Jordan. However, JTB is actively trying to introduce direct flights from Delhi and Mumbai to Amman. Furthermore, various MICE venues make it easy to plan activities in Jordan.  King Hussein Convention Center managed by Hilton can hold a conference for about 5000 people. Other MICE venues such as King Hussein Convention Palace, Zara Expo Center, Royal Cultural Centre – Amman, etc are also perfect venue for MICE activities.

Quality Hotels and Delicious Cuisine
Jordan has a variety of hotels in Amman, Dead Sea, Petra and Aqaba ranging from luxury brand chains to small boutique or budget hotels. To add to the existing inventory there are several ambitious projects in progress. The biggest one is the ‘Porto Dead Sea’ by Amer Group. The project is located on a land area of 800,000 m2 meters on the coast of the Dead Sea. It will drastically develop the Dead-Sea and increase the hotel capacity of the country by 25%.  Also, all of the luxury hotels have gourmet restaurants and coffee shops with the option of international cuisines. They have fitness centers, spas and swimming pools and most importantly they are all are well-equipped with conference and meeting facilities,

Necessary Assistance
