Maldives is renowned for leisure travel, with its award-winning properties and a tourism industry set to celebrate its Golden Jubilee in 2022. The island nation now aims to redefine MICE where corporates can host their business events in this breathtaking destination, barefoot!
The MICE segment was officially launched at the MICE India and Luxury Travel (MILT) Congress this October. Addressing the attendees, Mr. Thoyyib Mohamed, CEO and Managing Director of Visit Maldives remarked that the Maldives is unparalleled in offering that quintessential ‘laid-back’ atmosphere for thought provoking and stimulating discussions.
So, what does Maldives bring to MICE?
A couch set beneath palm trees with your toes in the sand could be your next meeting setting. Or perhaps the deck of a safari vessel. Think beach setups for networking sessions or gala dinners, and private islands for large-scale conferences to be held in a safe and calibrated manner. A team of dedicated personnel from butlers to hosts, will be at hand to ensure every detail is coordinated to the preferred choice.
Whether organizers seek to incorporate unique experiences into their meeting agenda or business travelers choose to extend their trip for pleasure, Maldives provides the opportunity for blending business and leisure. Travelers can snorkel with manta rays and turtles, surf, sail, explore the local culture and cuisine or spend a day out on a secluded island for a team building activity.
For too long, meeting spaces have generally been limited to somber boardrooms and screens. The Maldives is the perfect spot to leave zoom fatigue behind and transition from screen time to face time. Naturally distanced meeting venues which are set in secluded islands, ensure the highest standards of hygiene and safety are met enhancing your brand value at one of the most sought out destinations in the entire world.
