The Ministry of Culture & Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Kazakh Tourism Board have appointed Rohit Shorey as their MICE Tourism Ambassador for Kazakhstan in India.
Kairat Sadvakassov, Deputy Chairman, Kazakh Tourism Board acknowledged that Rohit Shorey, Founder, Kazin DMC has made a significant contribution to the overall development of tourism to the country from India, especially in the MICE segment. At a reception held at the Marriott hotel in Nur-Sultan on November 27, 2021, the board presented Shorey with a Certificate of Ambassadorship. The reception was attended by Vishal Jain, Director, Kazin International, who signed the MOU and collected the award.
Rohit and Vishal remain very bullish on Kazakhstan, as the destination has vast potential in the field of tourism. The destination has a wide diversity of offerings in all verticals of tourism. They feel that India and the Middle East will become a major source market for tourism to Kazakhstan and this is one of the reasons why Kazin DMC has maintained a 100 per cent focus on Kazakhstan since 2016.
Kazakh Tourism Board, a subsidiary of the Ministry of Culture and Sports, while working as the country’s brand manager for tourism, serves the government’s goal of achieving an eight per cent contribution to GDP from tourism. The government is significantly developing the tourism infrastructure of the country by opening numerous branded hotels to cater to the increasing demand of tourists. Almaty airport is going through a multi-million-dollar expansion to accommodate more airlines to serve the country.
Air Astana has also announced that they will resume direct flights between Almaty and Delhi effective December 16, 2021, after a twenty-month hiatus. As the world is gearing towards normalcy, this announcement could not have come at a better time.
