Service Industry Management Institute

Service industry, an industry in that part of the economy that creates services rather than tangible objects. It is also known as tertiary sector. Economists divide all economic activity into two broad categories, goods and services. Goods-producing industries are agriculture, mining, manufacturing, and construction; each of them creates some kind of tangible object. Service industries include everything else: banking, communications, wholesale and retail trade, health & spa, airlines, tourism, hotel management, all professional services such as engineering, computer software development, and medicine, nonprofit economic activity, all consumer services, and all government services, including defense and administration of justice. A services-dominated economy is characteristic of developed countries. In less-developed countries most people are employed in primary activities such as agriculture and mining.

Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviation Industry in India

Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviation Industry as a subject is new. These three are fast emerging subjects and a promising Service Industry.

However, the fulfilment of the goal of the subject remained far behind due to shortages of required human resources. Several Vocational Institutions are backbone in contributing to fill up the gap of the‘Urgent Industry Needs and Snail Pace Supplies of Qualified Human Resources’. On the other hand, in country like India, the unemployment rate and development disparity is increasing due to insufficient and incompetent government policy which gives thrust to mushrooming growth of private players in grooming human resources as per the Industry’s needs.

As per the reports, in 2015 the travel and tourism sector contributed Rs8.22 trillion or 7% of India’s gross domestic product (GDP) and 37.4 million jobs—almost 9% of total employment which is awesomely becoming a giant employment provider in developing country like India.

The reports also claimed that this sector has the potential to provide 46 Million employments to India’s economy. The government policy will also play an important role to fulfil this prediction. Yes, India has the resources and the potential to create services and employment in this sector. Several potential tourist destinations remain untouched and unknown to potential tourist because of the lack of support and policies from government. But, the concern is whether the ruling government and locals extends their helping hands through proper policies and goals to achieve as expected and consciously look into in implementation of the same. The judicious exploitation of the natural gifts of the nation needs a conscious and sincere efforts.

Therefore, at this juncture, where unemployment leads to strife and disturbs peaceful co-existence of nation,Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviationas anemployment driven subject, along with Vocational Institution plays a pivotal role in transforming unskilled labor to SKILLED human resource, providing services to customers and employing the mass.

Tourism Growth and Sustainable Environment

Tourism is the fastest growing industry in the world as well as the one of the world’s most competitive one. India’s travel and tourism economy is poised to grow 7.5% in 2015 over last year, exceeding the 6.9% growth that the global forum has predicted for the South Asian region.

The third-largest sub- segment of the services sector comprising trade, repair services, hotels and restaurants contributed nearly US$ 187.9 billion or 12.5 per cent to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2014-15, while growing the fastest at 11.7 per cent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over the period 2011-12 to 2014-15.

Tourism in India has significant potential considering the rich cultural and historical heritage, variety in ecology, terrains and places of natural beauty spread across the country. Tourism is also a potentially large employment generator besides being a significant source of foreign exchange for the country. The industry is expected to generate 13.45 million jobs across sub-segments such as Restaurants (10.49 million jobs), Hotels (2.3 million jobs) and Travel Agents/Tour Operators (0.66 million). India has moved up 13 positions to 52nd rank from 65th in Tourism & Travel competitive index. The sector had the potential to contribute 46 million jobs to the India economy by 2025.

All these figures show the growing market as well as the role being played by tourism in the economies of the nations. India has still more potential to attract foreign tourists as well as encourage domestic tourism.

Sustainability’ is the catchword of the new millennium. As one of Victoria’s larger industries, and a sector heavily reliant on natural assets as its product, tourism not only contributes to the problem, but it could become a major casualty of a failure to address the issues. However, the broader notion of sustainability goes beyond traditional ‘green’ elements. The World Tourism Organisation defines ‘sustainable tourism’ as “tourism which meets the needs of the present tourist and host regions,while protecting and enhancing opportunities for the future”. The broader notion of sustainability not only encompasses the environmental, but also the economic and socio-cultural aspects of the industry.

Consumer trends in travel have been steadily moving away from overcrowded, polluted, and culturally homogenous experiences. The new traveller ethic recognizes the need to protect finite resources and indigenous cultures. Sustainable delivery of services to meet the needs of visitors requires careful consideration of the desires and identity of local communities.

In fact, attractions and facilities that reflect the personality and heritage of an area are much more likely to be accepted by its residents. The ‘greening’ of your business also has marketing benefits, especially in attracting the rapidly growing market of environmentally-conscious visitors.

Tourism can also be a driving force for conservation,enhancement and interpretation of the natural and cultural environment – directly through raising awareness, and through the generation of funds to support projects. Therefore Sustainability should be important to all tourism enterprises, regardless of size or market orientation.

Bifurcation talk impacts MICE industry

The bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh has its own toll on the industry. One among the potential industries at the receiving end of the impact is the Meetings, Incentives, Conferencing and Exhibitions (MICE).

The market for MICE industry is estimated at about Rs.5,000 crore in India and Hyderabad is one of the most favored destinations for the industry. Unlike other cities, Hyderabad has well-developed infrastructure, skilled manpower, world class airport and convention centres including the state-of-the-art facility – the Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC).

However, owing to political uncertainty and lack of other proactive measures, the destination has lost many conferences in the recent past according to industry players. As per latest ratings of the International Conventions and Conferences Association (ICCA), Hyderabad was pushed behind other competing cities in the country. In contrast, India’s rank has gone up with 150 international meetings per annum and also one of the top 5 countries in Asia Pacific during 2012. Cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai have performed very well.

A couple of years ago, Hyderabad stood second next to New Delhi in India. As per the current ICCA rankings, Mumbai and Bangalore have taken second and third positions leaving Hyderabad in fourth place. Chennai is doing really well.

Hyderabad lost so many conferences in year 2013. Some organisers backed off due to issues related to Telangana and perceived disturbances in the last quarter of the calendar year 2013. We tried convincing them, but were not successful,” said Swetha Sharma, marketing director, HICC. The fear factor associated with the Telangana issue was clearly visible among the international entities evaluating Hyderabad, she added.

This apart, the noticeable decline can also be attributed to the inability of local government to match the subsidies and incentives being offered by other international destinations, according to Arjun Narnia, director of Hyderabad-based K.W. Conferences Pvt., Ltd.

“With the increasing costs and dipping sponsorships, the international associations are looking at venue cities with substantial support,” he said.

However, all is not lost. Right marketing and increased support to the conventions through government and private sector could substantially increase the MICE business, according to Vishalakshi. V, founder director of a Hyderabad-based company Identity which operates in the domain of destination marketing.
