By Editorial

Events, ceremonies, cultural programs and celebrations are an integral part of the Indian lifestyle. People in India want to live every moment of their life up to its full extent. So, they try to find amusement in every big and small occasion. Earlier, the events used to be organised and managed by all the family or group members together but the growth in disposable income, busy lifestyle, and time constraints that people face these days has resulted into the development of the event planning concept in our country. Nowadays people prefer innovative, theme-based and well-organised functions.  

 

Event planning market: 

The primary market for event planning is basically of two types, i.e. social and corporate.  

  • Social events: Some professionals choose social event planning as their niche because every year tons of couples get married, thousands of new born babies are welcomed and hundreds of pujas and rituals are performed.  
  • Corporate events: The corporate events include not only companies but also charities and NGOs. They spend thousands on events to increase visibility and reach their target markets. These methods of promotions have become increasingly important to beat their competitors. Similarly, charities and nonprofit organisations host receptions, get-togethers, athletic competitions, workshops, exhibitions and other events to expand their public support base and raise the funds they require.  

If you are a beginner or a student who wants to make event management his/her career then this article may take you one step ahead towards your dream.
