We have faced a tough competition from other agencies from all over the country in bidding for the Tender of BAJA SAEINDIA 2018 & we got this opportunity due to our Team’s passion to prevail it. The venue is a rural community with no facility of staying, drinking water or food. Our team has to cope with these challenges to spend one and a half month in tents. Although, the venue was an open ground of 125 acres, it was tricky to manage things like branding, security and mineral water supply; we have succeeded in making this desolate place to a beautiful & live venue for 4000 students and nearly 700 executives, who have attended this event.”
