The incoming incentive business brand Mintcentive and the outgoing business brand TUI- Meetings & Incentives have combined to form one entity, which will be headed by Naveen Rizvi, executive director Pacific World India.

Meanwhile, Pacific World has also announced the extension of its partnership in China with TUI China.

Selina Chavry, global managing director, Pacific World, said: "India is one of the world’s largest business events markets, China as well. Pacific World is now taking a leader’s position in those markets for the future five to ten years. Pacific World and LPTI clients will benefit from a one-stop shop offering for their meetings, events, incentives, congresses, whether domestic, outbound or inbound."

Mario Habig, managing director of Le Passage To India, said it was an opportunity for LPTI and Pacific World to take the number one position in the Indian meetings and events market.

"By focusing our meetings and incentives branding on Pacific World India and further integrating our 100 specialised colleagues into Pacific World, we will be better positioned to leverage the global strength of Pacific."
