Of all the weddings I’ve been lucky enough to be invited, the Indian ones have been the most colorful and fun. So I was happy to read this news from the Deccan Herald:
“We will open offices in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore by the year-end. Together with the Macau Government Tourist Office, we will offer special packages for Indian tourists during the upcoming festive season,” Mark Russell, senior vice-president (sales and marketing) of Venetian Macau, told reporters here Friday.
He said the luxury resort would market itself as a perfect venue for Indian marriages to tap the country’s tourist potential.
Indian weddings is a multi-million market. Even poor people spend a good amount of money to conduct weddings, Russell said.
The Venetian Macau is a 40-storey, 10.5 million square-feet property and has 3,000 suites.
The hotel’s representatives in India are also looking for wedding and event managers, besides tour operators, to promote its resort among Indian travelers.
Venetian Macau had recently hosted some Indian weddings. “We have seen over 100 percent growth in the numbers of Indian tourists since the last year,” said Russell.
