Bangalore is Very Dynamic and Expanding Rapidly: Shipra Sumbly Kaul
The property being the first Holiday Inn Express in Bengaluru, the main agenda is for people to know about the USPs of the hotel and popularizing the brand concept of smart service in India.
“HOSPITALITY SECTOR is one of the major contributors in GDP and is also a big foreign exchange earner for the country, however there is currently a consistent gap between demand and supply. We need more infrastructural development, good talent and training institutes to cover up the gap,” says Shipra Sumbly Kaul, newly appointed General Manager at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Bengaluru Racecourse.
Kaul feels that the industry should be more organised and focus should be given upon improving tourism. “The hospitality market in Bangalore is very dynamic and expanding rapidly. We see a vent of new hotel chains in the market as well as different areas growing into self-dependant business hubs. These developments indicate good growth and changes this year for hospitality sector,” she added.
