It is estimated that the industry creates lakhs of full-time jobs, from the event crew members that set up the stage and the lighting to those in control of security, marketing and every other vital component that goes into organizing a successful event. These jobs offer a high level of satisfaction and help to keep team morale at peak with the exciting environments that each person can be a part of. With the quick succession trends and technologies, it isn’t enough to look one year ahead; rather, modern meeting and event planners should keep their eyes on innovation coming over the horizon for the upcoming years within long-term planning range.”

We have covered crucial topics that are of the utmost necessity to successfully run an Event Organization. Topics ranging from Licensing for Event Organizations and Roles and support of Government organizations in supporting the Events Industry, to seeking guidance and support from industry veterans for the benefit of the upcoming event organizations have been covered in the previous editions.”

Sanjeev Kapoor, President, KEMA said, “KEMA started as a small group of people initially now has 80 organizations as paid registered members in a short span and saw participation from 200 odd event organizations and is growing strong. Our aim is to collaborate and to address all issues faced by event companies including licensing, start-ups, venues, legal, incubation, etc.”

“We have been regularly organizing many such panel discussions with government organizations and various stakeholders to bridge the gaps and make companies more compliant, equip them with all necessary information, work in unison by sharing our experiences and support our fellow members to run their establishments hassle-free. This will not only improve the quality of the organizations, but will also help us organize events in a more planned and structured way, and that, in turn, will help our clients” he added.
