What is your assessment of the event industry currently & what does the future hold:
The organized companies in the event sector as well as the event industry as a whole is now growing at a healthy rate, the reason being an increase in the event and activation spends by the marketers. This growth in event industry has also been fuelled by rising disposable income and growing middle class that is willing to spend more on personal events like weddings and other celebrations.
Profit margins of the events are also likely to increase, and revenue growth is expected to more than adequately cover the increases in direct variable costs. It is also expected that procurement efficiency will bring some cost-control as well for large events though inadequate supporting infrastructure like proper venue, accommodation availability, transportation and technology support can be a concern.
Foreseeing the growth and stability of the industry, we expect good quality freshers and experienced candidates to join the event management industry as it promises a great career.
