first_imgExhibitors are preparing to welcome an influx of MICE events into New Zealand, particularly Rotorua, after showcasing the best of the best at this year’s MEETINGS.Events & Venues Rotorua sales and marketing manager Brett Jeffery told e-Travel Blackboard that moving business to host the yearly conference was worth the exposure and offered him the opportunity to show what he has on offer without brochures and pamphlets.“Hosting MEETINGS in the city this year really benefits the whole region,” Mr Jeffery explained.“By having it here and in our building, we’ve jumped a few steps in the process where before we would have had to explain what we have and now we can just show them that this is it.“It’s also made it easier for buyers to book with us.”Mr Jeffery added that holding MEETINGS in Rotorua for the first time this year opened the city’s doors to the international market, which currently fills up 20 percent of his business.India’s Club 7 Holidays events manager Supriyo Daw said seeing what New Zealand has to offer has encouraged him to recommend his findings to Indian MICE planners.“I’ve been very impressed with everything I’ve seen here and will be encouraging everyone to bring people out here,” Mr Daw said. “There is a lot of interest in India about New Zealand and I think you will see more and more groups coming here in the future.’’  Although the economical benefit of hosting MEETINGS in Rotorua this year has yet to be determined, Conference and Incentives New Zealand chief executive Alan Trotter added that feedback from attendees has been “extremely positive”.“At the end of MEETINGS last year we had around $25 million worth of intended business booked and I would expect to see a similar result this time,” he said. “The buyers we’ve hosted from Australia, China, South East Asia and New Zealand have all been very enthusiastic about what they’ve seen here and impressed by the quality of our MICE industry.’’However, things are yet to slow down in Rotorua, as the city prepares to host three Rugby World Cup games at its Rotorua International Stadium in September this year.

And with Club Med’s European resorts more than 75% full at the start of ski season, the brand has had to create a pre-registration process to keep up with the demand of Australian travellers.“Our guests continue to book Club Med resorts for their snow holidays because of the exclusive snow community we’ve cultivated with our full-mountain experience,” says General Manager of Club Med Australia, Rachael Harding.“Our research show that guests are looking for off-mountain activities that wow them just as much as ski does, and Club Med truly delivers this in our premium package. Our winter offering welcomes guests to become part of the Club Med snow community, where the mountains are world-class, the activities are never-ending, and they leave their holiday transformed.”It’s a sentiment Australian and Club Med Beidahu snowboard instructor, Brandon Creighton, agrees with. He says the increase in Australians investing in premium Club Med ski holidays is because of the transformative nature of their stay: “Some of the experiences I’ve had while teaching guests how to snowboard will stay with me forever. There’s a moment and you can see it, when snowboarding gets into someone’s blood. All of a sudden they start wanting to push their limit, and finish runs with attitude! At Club Med, you can have a blast on the slopes, meet new people all the time during lunch and dinner at the in-resort restaurants, and then enjoy the après-ski activities to wind down.”Beyond a standard snow holidayWith recent research* showing snow holidays bring families closer together, Club Med fills the gap during Australia’s own off-season, offering a truly international snow experience. Snow enthusiasts and their families can experience a whole new world of passion at Club Med resorts, through immersive cultural experiences in some of the world’s best locations.For example, guests at Club Med Tomamu Hokkaido in Japan can savour award-winning locally-brewed spirits and Wagyu beef in-resort, while those at the brand new Club Med Les Arcs Panorama in France dive into Turkish baths and incredible slopes in one of the world’s biggest ski areas, Paradiski©.“With bulky gear to manage, hidden additional costs and the complexity of travel, the research* shows that international snow holidays can often be daunting for Australian families,” says Harding. “However, Club Med’s all-inclusive packages and premium service make the booking and experience of a snow holiday truly easy.”Club Med guests receive as part of their all-inclusive snow holiday:Accommodation with a wide-choice of room types, in the world’s best locationsAll gourmet meals in-resort and in selected altitude restaurantsPremium open bar, including beer, wine, spirits, cocktails and non-alcoholic beveragesKids Clubs for guests from 4 years old.^Evening entertainment and shows by the Club Med GO teamEasy Arrival: Club Med’s infamous offering where ski/snowboard gear is available in guests’ private lockers upon arrival so they can hit the slopes as soon as they check-in (available in European ski resorts)Ski lift passes to access the slopesGroup lessons tailored to all levels and ages, with English-speaking professional instructorsAn array of non-ski activities, from snowshoe walking and sledding to après-ski treats including hot-tubs, saunas or indoor heated swimming poolsAustralia’s best Winter Olympic program athletes join the Club Med snow communityClub Med resorts across Europe and Asia also open today with some of Australia’s best winter sportspeople in-residence, with thanks to the brand’s recent partnership with the Olympic Winter Institute of Australia (OWIA).

first_imgMore Metros Find Stable Footing Share Home Builders National Association of Home Builders Recovery 2014-06-05 Scott_Morgan Perhaps the best way to describe economic growth in U.S. metro markets is: It’s getting there, slowly but surely.The First American Leading Markets Index (LMI) , a report released Thursday by the National Association of Home Builders showed that 56 of approximately 350 metro markets nationwide have returned to or exceeded their last normal levels of economic and housing activity, as recorded before the recession. This is nine more metros than a year ago, suggesting that even though the lion’s share of metros in the U.S. are still underperforming, more are coming back to stable ground.In large metros, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, remained atop NAHB’s list of most-improving cities. According to the NAHB, Baton Rouge is 40 percent better than its last normal market level. Other major metros at the top of the list include Honolulu, Hawaii; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Austin and Houston, Texas; Los Angeles and San Jose, California; Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Salt Lake City, Utah.In small metros, Odessa and Midland, Texas, are now at double their strength prior to the recession, according to the LMI report. Similarly, housing economies are greatly improving in Bismarck and Casper, Wyoming and Grand Forks, North Dakota.Even though the majority of metros are not quite back to pre-recession strength, the remaining 294 metros are, on average, about 88 percent of the way to where they should be, and nearly 250 of those have improved in the past year. Additionally, more than a third of all markets are operating at a level of at least 90 percent of previous norms, which, according to Kurt Pfotenhauer, vice chairman of First American Title Insurance Co., bodes well for a continuing housing recovery in the year ahead.According to NAHB chief economist David Crowe, the one lagging component in the LMI is in single-family housing permits, which is only 43 percent of the way back to normal. Meanwhile, home prices are 26 percent above their last normal level and employment is at 95 percent of its previous norm. “In the 22 metros where permits are at or above normal, the overall index indicates that these markets have fully recovered,” Crowe said.”Markets are gradually returning to normal levels of housing and economic activity,” said NAHB chairman Kevin Kelly. “When we see more sustainable levels of job growth, this will unleash pent-up demand and bring more buyers into the marketplace.”Job growth appears to be growing steadily as well. On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve released the results of its latest Beige Book survey, which found that economic conditions across the U.S. and across the board have largely improved since the end of the first quarter.As for demand, the latest results are mixed. While Redfin’s latest Real-Time Demand Pulse, released June 2, showed a 2.1 percent drop in home tours among home shoppers in April, it also showed a 15.8 percent rise in home tours compared to the year prior.center_img in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News June 5, 2014 482 Views last_img read more

RecentlyJay Pandaan MP representing the Biju Janata Dal (BJD)has submitted three private members bills in Lok Sabha to address the issue of criminal legislators The current outrage against legislators with a criminal record is not new for Indian politics Various government commissions in the past (especially the Vohra Commission in 1993) have recommended measures to deal with the criminal-politician nexus Civil society organisations have been calling attention to the criminalisation of legislative bodies in India The Supreme Court intervened in 2002 and since thenall candidates contesting for elections have to compulsorily declare their criminal recordif anyand their assets In the face of this loud and persistent noise around the criminalisation of Indian politicswe ask whetheronce electeddo MPs with a criminal record behave differently from their peers who do not have a criminal record To answer this questionwe collected five disparate measures of the performance of MPs We looked at their attendance in Lok Sabhatheir participation in Lok Sabha debates and questions raised by them in Lok Sabha These data were compiled by PRS Legislative Research Secondwe examined the utilisation of MPLADS funds that are allocated to MPs This data came from the ministry of statistics website Thirdwe collected data on the reported assets of MPs (the veracity of this information is questioned by many) and MPs criminal records from the Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR) The data is drawn from affidavits filed by the MPs ADR has meticulously collated and arranged the information to distinguish between two kinds of criminal records serious (with charges like kidnappingmurderetc) and those who are charged with less serious crimes We find that MPs with criminal records are statistically no different from their peers with no criminal record on five indicators mentioned above Firston average MPs are crorepatisand MPs with serious IPC charges are likely to have more assetsbut not much more On averagean MP with no charges declared assets of Rs 57 crorewhereas an MP with serious IPC charges declared assets of Rs 58 crore Figure 1 demonstrates that MPs with criminal charges are less likely to attend Parliament MPs with serious IPC charges have a 70 per cent attendance record in ParliamentMPs with non-serious charges have 74 per cent attendanceand MPs with no charges have 79 per cent attendance record Howeverwhen they do attend ParliamentMPs with criminal charges against them are more active than their peers Figure 2 indicates that they are more likely to raise questions on the floor of the House On averageMPs with serious IPC charges asked 272MPs with non-serious charges asked 305and MPs with no charges asked 232 questionsrespectively MPs with a criminal record are also equally likely to participate in debates on the floor of the House The average participation rate among MPs is 31 debates Figure 3 suggests that there is no difference between MPs who have been charged with a crime in their utilisation of MPLADS funds MPs with and without criminal charges against them have spent similar proportions of the funds allocated to them These data show quite clearly that as far as these indicators are concernedthere is no significant difference in the performance of an MP with a criminal record and an MP with no criminal record There areof coursesome caveats to our analysis Our analysis is limited to the 2009 Lok Sabha elections and is based on the information available with the three organisations mentioned above Furthera deeper analysis may reveal that the nature of the questions posed by MPs with criminal charges against them are systematically different from the kind of questions asked by MPs with no charges against them Similarlyit could be the case that the kind of MPLADS spending by MPs with criminal records is different from that of MPs without such a record Only more sustained and systematic research can answer these questions Indeedlaw-breakers should not be lawmakers There is a clear moral position one can take against politicians with serious criminal charges against them But our preliminary data analysis shows that once in officepoliticians with criminal charges against them behave no differently from MPs with no criminal charges against them The data we present suggests that to blame politicians with criminal records for everything that is wrong with our system would not be very prudent The criminalisation of politics is not the cause of the dysfunctional democracy in Indiabut a symptom of greater malaise in our democracy Kejriwals assertion and Pandas effort is commendablebut will only touch the symptom and not cure the cause In the National Election Study (NES 2009)voters were asked whether they would prefer a candidate with a criminal record who gets work done or a clean politician who cannot get their work done The rural poor said that they would not mind voting for a candidate with a criminal record if the candidate can get their work done They also preferred an approachable politician to an honest politician The poors preference for a politician who can get things done no matter what isin our opinionbecause of the daily actions of a state that either treats the poor shabbily all year roundintimidates themor is simply absent That
