Rohit Shorey, Founder of Kazin DMC, gets another hat as MICE
Ambassador for Kazakh Tourism in India.
Mr. Kairat Sadvakassov, Deputy Chairman of the
Kazakh tourism board shared that Mr. Rohit Shorey, Founder, Kazin Dmc has made a
significant contribution to the overall development of tourism to the country
from India region, especially MICE. In a reception held at the Marriott hotel
in Nur Sultan on the 27th November 2021, the board presented Mr. Rohit Shorey with a certificate of Ambassadorship. The reception was attended
by Mr. Vishal Jain, Director, Kazin International who signed the MOU and
received the award on behalf of Shorey.
Rohit & Vishal remains very bullish on
Kazakhstan as a destination with vast potential in the field of tourism. Owning
to its wide diversity of offerings for all verticals of tourism, they feel that
India & the middle east will become a major source market for tourism to
Kazakhstan and this is one of the reasons why Kazin DMC has maintained 100%
focus on this destination since 2016.
Kazakh Tourism, being the country's brand
manager for tourism and a subsidiary of the Ministry of Culture and Sports,
serves the government's goal of achieving an 8% contribution to GDP from
tourism. The government is significantly developing the tourism infrastructure
of the country by opening numerous branded hotels to cater to the increasing
demand of tourists. Almaty airport is going through a multi-million-dollar
expansion to accommodate more airlines to serve the country.
Air Astana has announced that they will resume
direct flights between Almaty & Delhi effective 16th December after a
20-month hiatus. As the world is gearing towards normalcy, this announcement
could not have come at a better time.
Upon being asked by MICE and other key stats
from India, Rohit stated “Prior to the covid situation, 100K tourists
reportedly visited Kazakhstan in 2019 and Kazin DMC has
successfully conducted 12 MICE events in 2019 constituting over 3000
delegates. Short flying time of approx. 3hrs30min flight time is a huge
advantage as it saves of flying time of flight costs. Branded hotel chains
such as Ritz Carlton, Rixos, St Regis, Hilton, Swissotel, Mercure, etc. have a
vast presence in the main cities of Almaty & Nur Sultan which are the
main cities for MICE tourism. Other regions of Kazakhstan are also rapidly
expanding to accommodate the growing demand for tourism”
