Consulate Staff Promote “MICE” Travel

On Tuesday, February 11, U.S. Consulate General Commercial Consul Camille Richardson and Vice Consul Beau Miller briefed an audience of 80 travel agents at a Qatar Airways event on the benefits and ease of arranging group travel to the United States.  Their participation was part of a Consulate General program to promote Meeting, Incentive, Conference, Exhibition, or “MICE” travel to the United States.  The Consulate hopes to reach one million Indian travelers to the United States by 2015, and the MICE promotion program is one effort to help reach this goal.  The February 11 event in Mumbai is part of a Qatar Airways roadshow in India to promote new upcoming routes to Miami, Florida and Dallas, Texas.
