5. Meetings. Incentives. Conferences. Events. AKA M.I.C.E Industry

This segment of the hotel management industry consists of various social and formal gatherings or sporting events. Weddings, intimate ceremonies, and informal meet and greets are also a part of this segment. There are separate venues for certain events like these. Sometimes, temporary structures are set-up for week-long events to be held there. Due to this, the city/town gets heavy business. Local businesses flourish really well during these events.
