Jagdeep Bhagat, a known face of the travel industry, takes over as the new national coordinator

Network of Indian MICE Agents (NIMA), a pan-India body of agencies specializing in Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Events (MICE) businesses recently reconstituted its Executive Committee. In the new team Jagdeep Bhagat, CEO of Vee Bee Tours & Travels and one of the founding members of the association has taken over the role of the National Coordinator of NIMA.

Bhagat has been a well-known travel industry face and a keen observer of the travel and tourism industry with deep insights into the MICE space. In his new role, Bhagat will lead the association for the current term. Bhagat has replaced Gajesh Girdhar, Managing Director of Muzaffarnagar based Paryatan Holidays and founding National Coordinator of NIMA. Girdhar will now don the role of Chairman of the Governing Body.

Rakesh Arora of Ghaziabad based Nina Universal Tours, Ritesh Joshi of Dehradun based Incentives & Conference, Planners have been appointed as Coordinator – Finance & Administration and Coordinator – Public Relations respectively. Delhi based BTC Tours & Travels’ Tushar Jain and Honeygold Retreats’ Rajiv Chawla are the new Coordinator Membership and Coordinator – Marketing.  K Vijay Mohan of Vishakhapatnam based Holiday World is Coordinator – Southern Region and VikasKhanduri of Delhi based Holiday Merchant will remain the Advisor to the association.

Vinay Agarwal of Kolkata based Victoria Travels and Mukesh Jain of Delhi based Sterling International Tours & Travels have both been appointed as Member.

Commenting on his appointment as the National Coordinator, Bhagat, said, “It’s an honour to lead a very diverse bunch of highly professional and dedicated members at NIMA. MICE is the single-most-important vertical within the overall travel and tourism scheme of things, yet the segment has not been properly tapped by destinations and suppliers from within or outside the country. NIMA is committed to filling that void and handhold the stakeholders in developing and promoting destinations and growing businesses and arrivals from the burgeoning MICE sector in India.”

NIMA is committed to empowering its members with the necessary tool, information, useful resources and partnership. At the same time we will also pro-actively engage with the national and international tourism boards and various suppliers for the growth and betterment of MICE industry and help create more opportunities for all,” he further added.

Formed in 2014, NIMA is an association of MICE specializing operators represented from various parts of the country. The association has 150 members with close to half of the membership strength coming from non-metro cities.
