General Information about Chennai, India, for Meeting Planners

Nicely situated right on the Coromandel Coast of the sparkling Bay of Bengal, Chennai is the capital of Tamil Nadu, a well-known convention city. With over 4-1/2 million residents, Chennai is India’s sixth most-populated city. Businesses such as technology and the auto industry, are important here, and Chennai also houses a significant film industry, sometimes referred to as “Kollywood.” With George Town as its neighbor to the north, Chennai nevertheless enjoys the moniker of South India’s Gateway. The city itself can be sectored off into four areas, each with its own reason for being. Here is Patrick’s economic forecast for India.

Chennai Food Choices for Convention Attendees

If you’re in Chennai for a convention, you’re in for a treat! It’s one of the world’s centers for wonderful, fresh, food made from global recipes. Try Burgundy’s, at the Somerset Hotel, for an outstanding continental buffet of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. You can also get traditional Indian food here, and alcohol, too. The Greek cuisine at Kryptos by Willi is some of the best in town, and reasonably priced with sumptuous portions. Try the Mezze Platter! For traditional, down-home Indian cuisine, you cannot find a better place than Annalakshmi Restaurant, which can be found behind Air India’s office. They serve a lunch buffet you will never regret, and always remember.

Chennai Attractions for Conference Delegates

Don’t forget to set aside time apart from your convention to see the Chennai attractions. Temples and amusement parks, shopping areas and beaches are all important parts of the spicy flavor of Chennai. Storytrails is a cool theme park that lets you experience the city’s history. One of the favorite temples to visit is Kapaleeshwar Temple, a magnificent homage to Shiva with deep artistic, architectural and historic value. Elliot’s Beach is the place to go to completely kick back in this busy metropolitan city. The locals call this beach “Bessie.” Set in the upscale neighborhood of Besant Nagar, this beach tops the local Marina on many levels.
