A month before Vibrant Gujarat Summit, hotels in Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar booked to capacity

Nov 30, 2014 12:53 PM IST India India

Ahmedabad: With over a month to go for the seventh edition of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors' Summit, hotels in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar are already booked to capacity. With Prime Minister Narendra Modi now gaining stature as a global leader, his brainchild, the Vibrant Gujarat summit, is a housefull affair already.

The Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors' Summit will kick off in Gandhinagar on January 11.

Binay Thakur, General Manager of The Pride Hotel in Ahmedabad, said, "We have given rooms to INDEXTB, which is organising the Vibrant summit. The other rooms are also booked for two groups of inbound tourists for 'Pravasi Bharatiya Divas'."

About 5,000 guests, mainly NRIs are expected to be in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar for the 'Pravasi Bharaiya Divas' celebrations from January 7 to 9. Over 10,000 delegates are expected to attend the summit from across India and several countries.

Plast India, one of the biggest exhibitions in the country, will also be held in Gandhinagar and is expected to attract over 70,000 visitors.

Narendra Somani, President of Gujarat Restaurant and Hotel Owners Association, said, "Because of Vibrant Summit and 'Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas' functions, all three to five star hotels are already packed between 80 per cent and 100 per cent. People are coming from all over India and the world and the crowd is too heavy for hotels to handle. It's a jam packed situation."

In addition, the government will set up over 300 luxury tents, having all facilities, in Gandhinagar, to accommodate guests from India and abroad.
