This Month we get to know better LLP Tourist Information Center of Almaty City
What was your motivation to join ICCA?
Membership in ICCA is part of a plan to develop MICE tourism in Almaty. Our motivation is to make the city recognizable in the international arena, as well as to attract and retain qualitatively new tourists. In addition, we are open to cooperation and gaining new knowledge on the base of ICCA.
What sets the LLP Tourist Information Center of Almaty City apart?
Previously, Kazakhstan was represented in the international arena of MICE tourism by KazakhTourism JSC as a country cluster. We represent one of the most developed metropolitan areas in Central Asia, with a large market with solvent demand and a high level of income. Almaty has the best business conditions in the country. The main advantage of Almaty is the unique location of the metropolis, where from the center in 20 minutes you are able to reach the mountains of TransIli Alatau. We are confident that ICCA members will appreciate Almaty as one of the dynamically developing venues for MICE events.
Which trends do you see in the Association Meetings?
We see a long-term trend towards establishing partnerships with various tourism organizations that are members of the ICCA. We plan to adopt the experience and skills of holding MICE events and bring Almaty to the level of hosting 20 international business events per year.
