The hospitality industry in Lucknow, India, is experiencing a strong comeback as hotels are running at full occupancy due to a surge in weddings and events. The city has seen a series of big events this year, including IPL matches and the Cricket World Cup, and about 50,000 weddings are planned in the near future. The industry is benefiting not only from increased hotel bookings but also from the demand for services such as brass bands and caterers. The ongoing wedding season and a series of events until February are expected to generate significant revenue for the sector.
