The HP Government on Thursday made a push to promote the state as a premier wedding destination, which would further boost its tourism prospects.
Adding new aspects to tourism would help the state boost its revenue, besides further etching it on the country’s and international tourist map.
With signs of normalcy returning and recovery from Covid-19, the Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) has pulled all stops to promote the state as a wedding destination across the country.
The state is already a beaut on account of its scenic attractions. The inviting climate adds to the package, making various spots and centres more favourite among tourists, including foreigners. The concept of wedding destination would be a feather in the cap of the state’s tourism inventory.
HPTDC’s Managing Director Amit Kashyap held talks with local wedding planners here today and apprised them about the initiative to boost wedding business in the hill state.
“The government has worked out a strategy to offer its hotel properties as wedding destinations where end-to-end services would be provided under one roof,” Kashyap said, and offered the wedding planners to visit the properties and help promote the state’s initiative.
To start with, the state has identified six properties in this regard, namely Palace Hotel at Chail, Hotel Shivalik at Parwanoo, Hotel Pinewood at Baroj, Hotel Apple Blossom at Fagu, Hotel Hatu at Narkanda, and Hotel T-Bud at Palampur.
Under this offer, all wedding-related services, such as accommodation, food, photography, pre-wedding shoot, decoration, entertainment, religious ceremonies, card printing and distribution and local sight-seeing of guests would be arranged by the HPTDC.
“The Corporation has tied up with wedding planners for high-class and trouble-free wedding services to the guests,” Kashyap added.
