E-Factor, Laqshya, Aura, Showtime emerge toppers at EEMAX Awards '16

Learning gave way to anticipation as the 8th edition of the annual conclave hosted by EEMA (Event and Entertainment Management Association) drew to a close and got in gear for the prestigious EEMAX Global Awards on 18th October 2016.

?

The EEMAX Global Awards ceremony came together to a full house of the event fraternity at Hotel Sahara Star to recognize the country’s best in event planning. 88 awards were given away across 30 categories including, brand activations, intellectual properties, social events, CSR, corporate events, education etc.

E-Factor Entertainment bagged a total of 10 awards, consequently winning itself the title of top scorer for the evening. A heavy hitter in the private social events segment, E-Factor has carved a solid niche for itself over the years. Fiercely guarding its interests in the highly competitive and cannibalistic environment of events, the agency has once again managed to assert its dominance with this multi-victory. With 7 golds, 2 silvers and 1 bronze in the bag a clearly ecstatic Samit Garg, Founder, E-Factor Entertainment stated, “This has been an exceptionally good year for us. As an organization our life-premise is to never stop building ourselves. We have only just arrived, there is still so much we wish to learn and plan to offer. My team is in raptures with this clean sweep, I owe it all to their passion and effort. I also thank the jury for appreciating our hard work.”

Second place was secured by Laqshya Live Experiences with 2 golds, 2 bronzes and 3 silvers. CEO and Business Head Navneeth Mohan appeared happy as a clam making frequent trips to the stage with his team.

Trailing close behind for maximum number of metals bagged was a tie-score between Aura Integrated Solutions and Showtime Events with 6 awards each. While Aura seemed to emerge as an expert at brand activation and dealer programs, Showtime surfaced as a large format and BtoB event specialist. Siddharth Ganeriwala, Founder, Aura Integrated Solutions who could not be present to receive the awards wired this from Las Vegas: “There is such stiff competition in the industry, and each one is a genius in his own right. The awards come as such an honour and encouragement. Thank you to everyone who appreciated our work.”
