Amidst the plethora of conferences, interviews and speeches that dotted the media in recent times, a few surpassed the magnetism of others in terms of scale, content, audience and above all the popularity of the speaker. One such special occasion unfolded when the Honorable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi was welcomed on stage by the Editor-in-Chief of India TV, Shri Rajat Sharma. This marked the beginning of India TV ‘Salaam India Conclave’ on the May 2nd, 2019.
Given the nature of this high-level conclave, stringent security standards had to be adhered to. Everything from planning to execution was woven around the laid guidelines in and out of the Weightlifting Auditorium housed within the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in New Delhi.
Shri Rajat Sharma started the interview in his quintessential style with a soft yet swearing tonality. Gradually he engaged the Prime Minister to open up on his viewpoints and his vision for the nation. The impact of the conclave was understood from the fact that in no time #ModiOnIndiaTV became the top trending hashtag on Twitter.
This exclusive conclave was a historic moment for India TV and a rare responsibility filled with pride for the event partners, Think XQ Marcom Pvt Ltd. It was also the wonderful 2500+ audience who deserves a big appreciation for their cooperation. The conclave was an immediate success and PM Modi’s freewheeling exclusive interview on India TV broke records worldwide.
Speaking about the challenges and satisfaction of executing such an event, Mr. Akshay Chawla, Managing Director, Think XQ said, “The stature and success of a PM Modi event have been upheld to the highest standards. The biggest challenge for us was conceptualising and executing this in a short time of 3 days and still create the awe for the India TV viewers. However, taking challenges and winning them is what sets us apart. The entire conceptualising, production and execution was completed in less than 72 hours including the multi-level checks and last minute security requirements from SPG. It’s a great honor to execute this event with the 2 most famous personalities of India”.
On this occasion, Pradeep Khatri, Head Marketing, India TV said, “As soon as we got to know of this interview, we knew it’s going to be a huge operational challenge. We never wanted to do an interview with the honourable Prime Minister. Challenge was to build a concept punctuated with production, clearances, SPG interferences and most of all the race was always against time. Nevertheless, with ThinkXQ by our side and Akshay’s presence right through, we knew that we will be able to create the magic the management had envisioned for this special occasion. As always ThinkXQ owned it up execution was par excellence. Always proud of you team ThinkXQ.”
This prestigious conclave was conceptualised, planned and executed within a very short span of time, with an uncompromising approach towards quality and grandness.
