EMF Global chose Vietnam as the venue to celebrate its 10th anniversary because they realized the great development potential of Vietnamese tourism in the Indian market, in terms of conference tourism, and wedding destinations.
In the context that the frequency of direct flights connecting major cities of Vietnam and India is 10 times higher than the level before the Covid-19 pandemic, the connection of the Vietnamese Embassy in India is more convenient.
This event therefore aims to promote the destination of Vietnam and Phu Quoc especially to the organizers of Indian weddings and events on a large scale, creating a strong attraction for Vietnamese tourism in this billion-population market.
ACE is EMF's annual event, said Jaydeep Mehta, founder president of EMF Global. The event includes not only a conference and exhibition, but also an impressive Awards Ceremony to honor members with outstanding achievements.
ACE is also an opportunity for the next generation of event managers and leaders to recall their memories. The special thing here is the presence of leading figures in the business world, top officials and prominent individuals from the political and film communities of India. That creates an atmosphere of full excitement and solidarity at the event.

This will be a great opportunity to develop the events industry, especially after the global pandemic. In addition, this event will also introduce the most luxurious hotels in Vietnam to the participants.
