The event industry has been an extremely exciting place to be over the last few years, and the Fall of 2016 looks to be no different, with plenty of innovations lining up to expand and change the face of the industry. 2015 saw continued growth in the demand for events, something which could easily seduce event-holders into taking a “little and often” approach. So what makes this industry flourish year on year. The three C’s: context, content and creative. These are the keys to develop effective special events today. This includes the engagement of contractors, various types of paid staff and volunteers and how to create a favorable condition that ensures continuous commitments. Due to the dynamics of the event industry, the Human Resource Management requires special attention and consideration in the event context. The next is the content strategy and marketing for your events so that the customers keep coming back. The issue with any content strategy is time. The time to sit down and think about what kind of content should be created, time to stop and write, or record, edit and publish, and time to engage with your audience to promote the event you created. In order to save time one has to break down the content strategy for the event or conference you are planning step by step. Creating this process from scratch will take time, but once you have the content production foundation, you will save a lot of time and create more interest in attracting customers in your conference or event. The third ‘C’ is about being creative to this industry. A common denominator in event planning is creativity. Event planners should be remembered for their integrating originality and imagination into their events. Often times there is a boundary to the creativity, it may be a limited budget or a conservative theme that may intervene with your dash of personality. To conquer these, one should work on the finite components of the event such as title, invitations, venue, catering, and lighting, seating arrangements, stage designs, stage props, staff and entertainment to name a few. There are few biggies in the market playing as big event managers who has all the big events in their pockets and are giving results year on year. This industry will grow in India more as long as events connect people, breed innovation, build communities, and spark technologies.

The much awaited events of the year are lined up for the year end. One of the best-selling bands in the history of music, Coldplay will tour India this November (19TH NOVEMBER 2016).

It is reported that Ranveer Singh, Arijit Singh, Farhan Akhtar, Aamir Khan, Shraddha Kapoor are a few names that are almost confirmed to perform at the event.
