“ It is indeed a matter of great pleasure that the 1st Edition of Events Today Conclave 2019 is being organized under the aegis of the IESA Chennai Chapter on 16th-17th October, 2019 at The Elite Grand, Chennai.
Over the years, business patterns, strategies and systems have witnessed paradigm changes. Today, technology has revolutionized the way events are being organized. From an Unorganized sector, slowly, but gradually, the event industry is moving towards an Organized sector. All these changes also bring challenges of sustainability with them. Organizing this kind of Conclave provides ample opportunities to share the wisdom, generate views on how to meet the challenges of present day business environment and learn how to flourish in the Event Industry.
I extend my heartiest wishes to the Conclave Organizing Committee for a grand success of this’ 1st Edition of Events Today Conclave 2019’'.- Sunttosh NM.
“The first-year of the events today conclave was brilliant. The needy industry was addressed with the right mix of content and attended by a large number of attendees.
I thank Sunntosh NM from IESA for inviting me to speak on the Digital transformation in our industry. I was a speaker there and so I spent all day at the event. Every bit was a new experience and a fresh learning for me. Translation India’s service of instant Tamil translation on wireless headsets was a great boon for first time introductions at this regional event. The event was very well-organized and all-in-all the overall thought of the event was amazing.”- Deepak Pawar.
The host managed to plan a package for the visitors who registered with one night two days stay during the event at the venue all inclusive of meals. The event was supported by Madras Management Association, Event Venues & Avenues and Exhibition Showcase and sponsored by Supreme Furniture.
