In an exclusive interview with EVENTFAQS Media, Sachin Mutreja, Director, STCH shares insights into the evolving landscape of events and provides a glimpse into the organization's forthcoming projects, partnerships, or initiatives. 

Q1)  How do you perceive the current growth trajectory of the event industry, and what factors contribute to this growth? 

The event industry is expected to only grow the upward ladder thanks to the growth and innovation of technology and interactivity.. Some of the factors that contribute to this growth are the increasing demand for experiential and immersive events, the adoption of hybrid and virtual formats, the use of AI and other technologies to enhance engagement and personalization, and the rising importance of events as a marketing and PR tool. 

Q2) How has the landscape of events evolved, and what emerging trends do you anticipate will gain prominence in the coming months? 

The landscape of events has evolved significantly in the past few years, especially due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of the emerging trends that are likely to gain prominence in the coming months are:

Hybrid events that combine the best of both in-person and virtual experiences, are now offering greater flexibility, reach, and sustainability. Events are consciously trying to focus on creating transformational experiences that inspire, educate, and connect attendees, rather than just providing information or entertainment.

The central point of an event now is to reflect on the brand values and social responsibility of the organizers and sponsors, such as accessibility, diversity, inclusion, and environmental impact which gives the event a touch of personalisation and adds to a lot of emotions directly. Events and Event organizers intentionally leverage data and analytics to measure and optimize the ROI, as well as to personalize and tailor the content and interactions for each attendees.

Q3) How does STCH strive to create memorable and distinctive experiences for its clients? Can you highlight some of the key achievements or successful events executed by STCH? 

STCH is a company that operates in the MICE and Events Industry, offering integrated solutions for events, exhibitions, activations, experiential marketing and mice. STCH strives to create memorable and distinctive experiences for its clients by understanding their objectives, challenges, and target audience, and by delivering innovative and customized solutions that exceed their expectations. Some of the key achievements or successful events executed by STCH as mentioned above are of course the 69th Hyundai Filmfare Awards 2024 with Gujarat Tourism and the very first of its kind, The Curtain Raiser Technical Filmfare awards. Other than these, the other few memories that we helped create include, The PepsiCo Annual Beverage Conference, the very first New Delhi Slush’D India, Genpact’s Focus, The Aditya Birla Medallion Awards where we ran wild and turned an internal award function to an 800 people concert, The 150th anniversary of PwC India and a long successful list of close to 90 events in this year.

Q4) What does the future hold for STCH? Are there any upcoming projects, partnerships, or initiatives that you can provide a sneak peek into?

We want the future of STCH to look bright and promising, as we continue to expand our portfolio of services and clients, and to explore new opportunities and partnerships in the event and marketing industry. Some of the upcoming projects, partnerships, or initiatives that we are looking at are a mix of new relationships and the pre-exisiting long lists of clients that have now become family. We are definitely looking at solidifying our association with our retainer clients.
