Pondicherry is a budding destination for corporate and other meetings and events. Quality facilities are available at competitive prices, and the options are growing. Many hotels offer venues such as conference halls, boardrooms, lawns and banquet halls, as well as other necessary infrastructure such as wireless internet, audio-visual and video conferencing equipment etc.

Spaces and amenities to organise round-tables and other conferences are also available at several clubs. For weddings, ceremonies and special parties, one can choose from a range of banquet halls. Sound and light equipment, caterers, decorators, and a variety of performers can be hired for corporate as well as social events. Duty-free alcohol, original wines and an amazing variety of cuisine make for memorable entertaining.

For pre- and post-conference tours, there are opportunities to do everything from heritage walks to shopping to adventure sports. Perhaps this is the reason an increasing number of companies and event organisers are choosing this location to organise marketing conferences, marathons, retirement camps and other events.
