Hyderabad, India Meeting Planning Overview
Capital of the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad is a heady mixture of heritage, traditional hospitality, and a thriving software business. The city is the second-largest in software exports in India, with the country’s largest information technology park — HITEC City. Since the development of major meeting venues in Hyderabad, it is increasingly being sought after as a MICE destination.
Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (HYD) serves the city of Hyderabad. Recognized as No. 1 in the world in Airport Service Quality in 2017, the airport is located about 24 kilometers southwest of the city. For the convenience of business travelers, it offers VIP lounges and a well-equipped business center. Corporate travelers can also take advantage of high-speed broadband internet access, photocopying and faxing services, and conference and meeting facilities.
One of the best conference venues in Hyderabad — and all of South Asia — is the Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC). Located in Hyderabad's IT hub and business district, the HICC has been designed to handle anything from small meetings of six people to large-scale events with 6,000 attendees. Its 287-room hotel component is also the first Green Globe-certified hotel in Hyderabad.
Hotel venues in Hyderabad include Park Hyatt Hyderabad, which is located close to the Central Business District. This 250-room hotel is also the first luxury business hotel in the city to offer 42 fully serviced luxury apartments for long-staying guests. The hotel’s meetings and events facilities measure over 12,000 square feet, including a pillarless ballroom, a prefunction area, and 10 meeting rooms designed to accommodate large and small groups.
The 261-room Taj Krishna Hyderabad luxury hotel is another one of the most preferred meeting venues in Hyderabad. Featuring 25,000 square feet of space across eight indoor meeting rooms and two outdoor venues, this hotel can accommodate events with 15 to 2,000 attendees.
