HYATT REGENCY, NEW DELHI

The Hyatt Regency Delhi, a luxury business hotel built in 1983 offers a full range of luxury services and amenities. The hotel hosts the best Italian, Pan Asian & Chinese restaurants in the city. It also offers technology-enabled ways to collaborate; and space to work, engage or relax. Luxurious in every way!! We are grateful for their collaboration & support.

It gives me immense pleasure to know that ‘The Luxury League’ is going to organize ‘The Luxury League Round Table 2017’ function on 22nd September, 2017.
It is an appropriate time to unite with Hon’ble Prime Minister’s ‘Make in India’ initiative to brand Indian luxury globally and raise awareness in market development & market penetration activities in this segment. Such initiative is not only path breaking but also adds to creating specialized study & research into responsible luxury.
I am hopeful that ‘The luxury League Round Table 2017’ will globally promote Indian Talents – weavers & craftsmen, thus celebrating the importance of Design & Innovation on one hand and providing a platform to promote the nation’s global image through its heritage & culture on another.
It is a moment of pleasure to convey my congratulation from the depth of my heart to you and your dedicated team and I wish the event, a grand success.


Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi
Hon’ble Minister of Ministry Affairs,
Government of India

I would like to congratulate Ms. Ritu Beri and The Luxury League for organising an event on 22nd September, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, New Delhi, to promote the concept of global image building of India through the Heritage of our culture. Her efforts to make India a luxury destination are highly commendable and praiseworthy.
It is an opportune time to organise and also speak about Chandigarh and its great success with discussions on furniture designed by Le Corbusier. Following the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of ‘Make in India’ with the objective of branding Indian luxury globally and thus raise India’s awareness is a great initiative.
I wish the Luxury League every success and extend good wishes to the organisers as well as all the participant.
