Reminiscing about the journey of EEMA, Samit Garg, the President of EEMA said during his discussion on the event, “As we gather to celebrate the foundation day of EEMA, I am reminded of the power that lies within unity and collaboration of all the incredible members of the association who have come together, driven with a purpose to elevate the standards of the event industry. EEMA has laid a foundation that serves as a bedrock for every stakeholder of the event and entertainment industry. We look forward to creating some meaningful stories in the near future.”

The initiative to celebrate the 15th Foundation Day was taken by Team North comprising Vipul Pandhi, Vice President North, EEMA, Ruchin Kohli, Joint Secretary, EEMA North and Venessa Williams, Committee Member, EEMA North. The day served as an opportunity to recognise and appreciate the remarkable contributions of individuals and organisations that have played an instrumental role in shaping the industry and the National Executive Committee honoured all the founder members who were present on that significant day.

As we prepare ourselves for the next 15 years, I believe the best is yet to come.”
