Our understanding of the brand and immaculate execution makes us win business time and again. We won the pitch with our creative design, conceptualization skill and production capability for the event, which involved two days of demanding production and setup. We provided a complete end-to-end design solution right from the initial concept stage to a flawless technical planning and execution."
The guestlist included John Abraham, Suhel Seth, Chanda Kochar, Pawan Munjal, and 250 other business leaders of India. The awards began with a welcome address by the host, Dr. Prannoy Roy, who invited the Chief Guest Montek Singh Ahluwalia - Planning Commission Deputy Chairman on-stage to discuss business and the Indian economy. Post the interactive session, the various award segments came alive and facilitated business leaders in India.
Ahluwalia discussed several indispensable questions on India's macro-economic problems with the award winners. The award segment had various categories and each winner was briefly interviewed by an NDTV host. Ahluwalia recognised each winner's contribution and handed the award out to each prize winner. Winners included Mahindra, ICICI Bank, Samsung, etc. The award ceremony led to a question and answer session for the audience. Dr. Roy's closing note saw the end of the awards show.
The 46 ft wide LED screen had physical breaks at the end for a dynamic background. The facia of the stage was fully backlit.
Commenting on the execution, Dutta said: "We're glad we formed a grand look despite the height restriction with a dynamic background and flowing stage setup. There was some last minute finalization from the client and we had to deliver what was committed in terms of design and technicals. Getting a few camera shots were tough due to space constraints.
