This is the very first business hotel offering in the country to be located within a trade fair venue
India Exposition Mart Limited (IEML) Greater Noida, one of India’s largest integrated venues for exhibitions, conventions and conferences has added another feather to its cap with the launch of Expo Inn, Suites and Convention, a 134 rooms business hotel which is a first of its kind stay option within a trade fair venue.
Spread across 58 acres of land in Greater Noida, IEML has been successfully operating for 16 years being awarded twice as the best convention centre for worldwide business-to-business exhibits, conferences, congresses, product launches, and promotional events, with technology-driven, world-class facilities and safety standards.
The newly opened Expo Inn, Suites and Convention comes with 134 rooms, two restaurants (one multi-cuisine restaurant and one deli-style cafe), a bar and in-room dining. Other facilities include a spa, swimming pool and gym. The property has multiple banquet halls along with a maximum number of breakaway rooms for parallel meeting sessions in the premise that can be used for MICE events and social events. Rooms are of four categories – Standard Twin rooms, King Bedrooms, Executive Suite Rooms and Presidential Suites.
“Our location is our biggest advantage,” says Mr. Rakesh Kumar, Chairman India Exposition Mart Ltd. . “The IEML facilities come powered by the in-house uninterrupted power supply of 34 MW + 3 MW Solar Power facilitates seamless electricity supply; Banking and Foreign Exchange Services; It also has three helipads; and Medical Facilities. Also, I must point out, we offer a large parking capacity which most exhibition grounds don’t have,” said Mr. Sudeep Sarcar, CEO, of India Exposition Mart Ltd. “This new facility will be a perfect destination to organise large-size MICE events, association conferences, award shows and product launches. The exhibition grounds are now integrated with the hotel to go even several notches higher for services.”
The Expo Inn will greatly form a distinct market sub-segment to target the tech-savvy and sustainable business travellers that are increasingly seeking out authentic, high quality yet affordable experiences. This is part of the strategy to provide a complete ecosystem to a business traveller who is essentially visiting the venue for the fair. Till now the two (trade fair venues and hotels) worked separately and we are now providing a seamless and integrated solution,” shares Mr. Vinod Upreti, GM, Expo Inn.
The IEML has been a venue of choice for prestigious international and world congresses including COP 14 (United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, LPG Week 2022, India Water Week 2022, International Petro Tech Conference (2014,2019), 18th World Road Meet 2017 among many others because of its world-class infrastructure and safety standards. It has hosted over 150 international exhibitions and conferences attended by top UN officials and diplomats. It is a highly security-compliant venue, meeting SPG requirements for high-level delegations.
