, Kerala India (PressExposure) November 12, 2008 -- With state-of-the-art, high quality products that is comparable to the best in the world, Kerala has always been a shopping destination for tourists from neighbouring states.
For 45 days shops in all the 14 districts in the state join hands with the government to form the Grand Kerala Shopping Festival effectively transforming Kerala into the largest ever shopping mall in the whole world, and that too amidst green fields and away from all the din and bustle.
The green school of thought â Kerala. Going green is the overwhelming option these days. Green options are galore. Reengineer the entire business philosophy to the needs of nature seems to be the concept gaining currency. Schools in Kerala, for example, follow water-harvesting techniques effectively.
Let shopping everyday be a new reason to celebrate.
The market scenario in Kerala is really real, and truly hot â vibrant, dynamic and lively. Kerala has everything going for it. Burgeoning middle class, sustained economic growth, forward-looking economy and upcoming townships â Kerala as acclaimed internationally, is the future story or the story of the future â an elephant that is gaining momentum slowly but steadily.
But what is noteworthy is that the demand side buoyancy does not automatically make Kerala a favorite destination for putting money.
The business world is watching Kerala as the state demonstrates the fulsome financial power of a region possessing awesome liquidity. The state has become a flourishing hub for tourism, retailing and commerce in Asia, all based on the maxim that âif you have it, they will comeâ.
Malls across cities in Kerala are going wi-fi to ensure executives and students spend more time in the mall with their laptops, while children and spouse busy shopping. The idea is to extend the time spent in the mall. The longer time spent in the mall translates into more purchases. If earlier malls went innovative and introduced play zones for children to attract families, they are now providing a perfect work ambience for executives who can continue with their business while their families shop.
World class infrastructure and connectivity
With airports and seaports Kerala is turning into the number one hub for shopping tourism in the whole of Asia.
Kerala is fast becoming an emerging hotspot for medical tourism too. The Kerala government is doing everything in their capacity to promote medical tourism. Ayurveda and Allopathy are combined for better results. Discover the ancient principles of Ayurveda designed to bring relief from various diseases and conditions. The mantra â world-class healthcare at affordable cost.
Considered a flagship project of the Tourism Department, the Kerala Government has invested a lot of time, resources and efforts in GKSF right from the planning stage onwards.
Do you have an eye for exceptional quality products from luxury cars to dazzling craft works?
Competition is good for consumers, good for industry.
Though it is an ambitious target, it wonât be an impossible plan as we have a clearly chalked out plan. We also have the infrastructure and the manpower to go for such a growth plan.
These are the competitive times that demand intense focus and passionate commitments.
GKSF has been recording good response right from its first year of activity â a project that combines tradition and best of modern comforts. The festival is also designed to showcase the traditional grandeur of the stateâs architecture - superior technology and most modern facilities even when absorbing the fine elements of tradition.
