First global edition of EEMAX Awards ropes in 19 sponsors

MUMBAI: Indian event industry’s apex body - Event and Entertainment Management Association (EEMA), which will be taking its annual awards global this year, has roped in as many as 19 sponsors. 


Some of the brands that have come on board are Renault (Automobile partner), Colors (Conclave partner), Maharashtra Unlimited (State partner), CNBC TV18 (Official broadcast partner), Videocon (Support partner), Pepsi (Beverage partner) and Bacardi (Beverage partner) amongst others.


The EEMAX Global Awards are scheduled for 20 September, 2015 in Mumbai and will be preceded by the EEMAX Global Conclave on 19 and 20 September. The awards aims to identify, celebrate and honour the best events and experiential marketing projects from India and around the world.

EEMA received a huge number of entries for the EEMAX Global Awards. Agencies across India, Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the US have send in their entries and registered for the event.


Speaking to EEMA president Sabbas Joseph said, “The number of entries has been over whelming. It is certainly beyond expectation. We will give away 30 awards and I am looking forward to the awards night.”


The three level selection process, involves taking the award entries through a screening jury, a global jury and peer voting by members of EEMA to choose the winners in 29 categories that span entertainment events, social events, sporting events, weddings, exhibitions, digital events, government events, education programs and CSR.


“Indian event companies, which run operations globally is what triggered us to take the awards global. For the first year, we will be honouring a chosen few international icons,” informed Joseph.


 The EEMAX Global Awards are a clear sign of India’s event industry going global. Indian event companies are being retained by international clients and brands for development of activation programs as well as corporate events, mega public events and also sporting galas.


The event industry in India has grown exponentially over the last two decades with multiple entities operating in this space, in various segments and levels across 100+ cities in India. “Not long back companies used to spend only two per cent of their marketing budget in experiential marketing, but now they spend 15 to 20 per cent and that shows the progress of the sector,” added Joseph.


Adding entertainment to the awards night will be performers like All India Backchod (AIB), Shaan, Ustaad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shillong Choir.


“The positive side of the event sector will be discussed and portrayed throughout the conclave, and taking India international will be the theme this year,” Joseph summed up.


Interestingly, the international jury for EEMAX Awards includes the likes of Parineeti Chopra, Dia Mirza, Vikas Bahl, Vivek Oberoi, Prasoon Joshi, Neha Dhupia and others.
