It was at EEMGAINE 2016 when Minister of Tourism for Government of Delhi, Kapil Mishra had announced that his government was in the process of creating a first ever ‘Delhi Festival’ and requested event agencies for partnering and support. And, living up to its promise, the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) on July 2nd 2016, released its Expression of Interest (EOI) for hire of an event management agency for organization of Delhi Festival 2016.
The objective of this EOI is to solicit proposals from the interested bidders for participation in a bid process for selection of the organizing agency of the Delhi Festival. The value of the tender is 15 Crore INR and the selected agency would be required to conceptualize, plan, design, execute and deliver the events on turnkey basis for Delhi Festival 2016.
The festival is slated to be organized between October-November 2016 with an objective to position Delhi as a vibrant, progressive and diverse city to travel to and also increase a sense of belonging and pride amongst its citizens. The overall theme of the festival will be- “Celebrating The Many Delhi’s Within Delhi.”
The EOI document shared by the DTTDC reveals that the Delhi Festival will not be yet another typical festival celebrated through performances by prominent artists at a centralized area of the city. Instead, the festival will have 10 mini festivals under it, with each catering to a different set of people. Additionally, the festival will also have 2 large scale events for the Women of Delhi, The Youth of Delhi and the Unsung Heroes of Delhi.
The last date for submission of EOI Response is 3.00 PM on July 13, 2016 and the declaration of short-listed firms will be made on July 14, 2016 at 4.00 PM.
