Event Capital unveils new logo

Event Capital, an event intellectual property specialist company and a Laqshya Media Group holding, has unveiled its new logo which signifies the company’s transformation from an event IP aggregator to focused creators and curators of IP events in the live space. The modern typeface is new age and concept driven which reinforces Event Capital’s capability of creating powerful content driven stories. 

This announcement by Event Capital is just one of the first in the series that the company has made after appointing a new CEO, Swaroop Banerjee, only a month ago. A festivals and branded entertainment specialist, Banerjee will be actively involved in expanding the current bouquet of live intellectual properties owned by Event Capital. He will also focus on introducing live and digital content creations and will oversee development of new verticals in lifestyle, music and sports.

Explaining the change, Banerjee commented, “The new logo of Event Capital has a bold outlook in the font with a colour that has a digital millennial filter woven into it. This depicts our ability to curate for youth genres as ably as for other genres. This is our 3rd year in existence and there has been a phenomenal track record so far; we needed a fresh outlook to chart our trajectory higher and therefore the most important thing was to ensure that we come across as a youth consumer focussed organization. Additionally, the introduction of a music vertical will change the dynamics for EC and the initiatives under this vertical will form core headline products under the EC hood. Ultimately the bulls-eye for us this year is to become content creators in the live space.”

Adding to this, Deepak Choudhary, Co-founder and Director, Event Capital said, “It’s has been three exciting business and brand years for Event Capital. Market orientations have changed and the IP industry is now extremely matured. We had started with acquisitions and collaborations with existing IP owners and now we have moved to creating our own IPs. It was only natural that we go through an image makeover as we have gone through a concept makeover.”

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists. Smartphones have made everyone a photographer. The trend that we are seeing is one of hyperdigitalization, which is causing the lines between product and services to blur.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
