Hyderabad continues to make headway in the IT sector. Global chip maker Qualcomm announced an investment of $8.5 million for expansion of its design initiatives in India, which would primarily include funding its Innovation Labs at Hyderabad.
With such movements in the globalization effort, HCVB’s Action Plan for Q1 includes submitting bids on various conferences with subjects related to IT, medical, pharmaceutical and faith-related studies. One particular congress that HCVB is bidding for and would be of key importance to India is a France-based organisation with the topic being global demographics.
With strong support of the State Government, we can expect numerous delegates for the six mega conferences confirmed for Hyderabad in 2017 to import vital research, knowledge exchange, technical expertise and trade partnerships on topics such as crystallography, endoscopy, tourism, optometry and others to the city. The impact of these delegates coming to Hyderabad reforms the structure of the economy of the metropolis and in-turn provides gains to the State Government.
HCVB is pleased to welcome its two newest PCO members- ICE India and Plan it! Meetings & Conference Pvt. Ltd. into HCVB. We look forward to a successful partnership with the companies. Supporting and partnering with India Tourism, HCVB participated in the tradeshow, AIME (Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo) held at Melbourne this month.
Lastly, HCVB has the pleasure to announce that Hyderabad has won the bid to host the Global Water Security Conference for Hyderabad in 2018. HCVB’s list of wins continues to grow and show that our city represents India in globalization and in the World of MICE.
