Contestants and visitors alike will be treated to a sensory journey through traditional art forms, culinary delights, and awe-inspiring landmarks.
The Miss World pageant has long focused on the empowerment of women, encouraging them to not only embrace their outer beauty but also to use their platform to create positive change. India’s role as host provides a powerful stage for discussing women’s issues, gender equality, and the importance of education and healthcare for all. Contestants’ stories of determination, perseverance, and advocacy will inspire millions, and India’s support for these causes will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact.
Tourism and Hospitality
