Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions (MICE) are a central segment in the hospitality industry. MICE sales are extremely beneficial and can generate a sizeable portion of a hotel’s revenue. By attracting MICE tourists, you have an opportunity to boost the returns of your establishment, as well as your reputation. Studies have shown that MICE tourism makes up over fifty percent of business travel.
MICE Benefits for Hotels
Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions Sales are especially advantageous to the hotel industry. Attendees of these MICE events fill up rooms at the host hotels and nearby venues. In addition, attendees of MICE events can bring you additional leisure business in the long run, when returning to a location they have been during a business event. “Bleisure” travel (the trend of blending business with leisure activities on business trips) is on the rise, providing a greater quality of life as well as a work/life balance to those who take advantage of it.
Attract MICE Tourism and Boost Revenue
MICE tourism is constantly evolving and has significantly transformed during the pandemic. Hotels must adapt, stay informed, and understand the marketing environment in which MICE industry professionals and event directors currently operate. The needs vary from market to market and it is essential to be aware of these diversities.
