PDL Organizes a Successful Meet Between Hoteliers in Pokhara and C-Center
PDL Consulting Group organized a highly successful meeting between hoteliers in Pokhara and delegates from C-Center, a Chinese Education and Business Consulting Firm based in Kathmandu. The event was held on September 14, 2015, at Hotel Barahi, a 3-star deluxe hotel situated near the beautiful Fewa Lake. Representatives of over 10 major hotels and resorts, including The Fulbari Resort & Spa, Waterfront Resort, Hotel Da Yatra Courtyard, and Pokhara Grande, participated in the program. Mr. Sam Wood led the C-Center’s team. Mr. Wood’s team caters to high-end Chinese businesspersons and delegates seeking luxury and comfort while in Nepal. C-Center also provides linguistic and cross-cultural consulting services to top hotels across Nepal.
Outbound tourism from China is a growing industry. Almost 100 million Chinese tourists traveled out of the country in 2013. As such, the meeting focused on ways for Nepal’s tourism industry to tap into the market, including marketing and optimizing hotel offerings to cater to the Chinese market.
Mr. Saroj Dhakal, one of PDL’s Founding Partners, hosted the event, while Mr. Sudeep Simkhada, PDL’s CEO/Founding Partner, gave an interactive speech demonstrating PDL’s services. Mr. Deepak Kharel, PDL’s media consultant on loan to Sano Paila (A Little Step), was also present and provided a brief introduction about Sano Paila’s exemplary works.
PDL will be organizing similar events to promote tourism in Nepal. The devastating April and May earthquakes claimed thousands of lives and displaced tens of thousands of people, not to mention the staggering number of physical and emotional injuries sustained. To make things worse, the earthquakes also badly affected Nepal’s tourism industry. PDL, in line with its mission to serve the greater interest of Nepal through betterment of Nepal’s strategically important business sectors, will be providing similar meet and greet B2B and B2C networking events in the future.
