The collaborative concept between Leela Ambience Gurugram, luxury venues managed by GNH Hotels and Ferns N Petals and Event Management conglomerate Touchwood Group was all about how multiple synergies convene to offer a grand venue for splendid celebrations.
When some of India’s most successful wedding planners come together with the top hoteliers of India, one can be sure there will be lots of discussions and speculation on how the celebrations market will evolve in 2021 and 2022. With concerns about the pandemic and how soon weddings will be back to the hey-days there was cheer that in the past couple of months, weddings and other related services have remained the constant business stream for the event and hospitality industry in India.
