Delhi-based event management company Showtime Events is partnering with the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) to host a series of events under ‘India Everywhere’ at the World Economic Forum to be held in Davos, Switzerland from January 25 to 29 2006.
Speaking to exchange4media, Michael Menezes, Managing Director, Showtime Events, said, “We have been partnering with CII for the last three years for the Cannes festival, and this tie-up for the WEF is a natural progression of that.”
Showtime will also be organising a gala evening for the finale of the WEF at the convention centre there, which will feature top Indian artists like Shiamak Davar and Usha Uthup. Speaking further on the soiree, Menezes said, “The programme is a big challenge for us as we will get just two hours to set up the stage, the props and get the show going.”
Shouldn’t be a problem for the events management company, which in its eight years of existence has organised over 1,500 events. Some of its major clients include Hero Honda, Hyundai, Tata Motors, and the Taj Group of Hotels among others.
In keeping with the strong India focus at the forthcoming WEF, guests attending an evening of Indian hospitality will be treated to Indian food and receive typical Indian gifts like ‘bindis’ and bangles.
