EEMA’s annual convention EEMAGINE on July 27-30

This year, Event and Entertainment Management Association (EEMA) is organising its 5th annual national convention ‘EEMAGINE’ at The Leela Kempinski, Gurgaon from July 27 to 30, 2012 and the EEMAX Awards at Kingdom of Dreams on July 30. Though, the event and entertainment industry is growing exponentially over the last two decades, consolidation of the size and scale has not been done. The power and impact of the live medium has to be communicated to the industry at large and this is what sets the theme for this year’s EEMAGINE – ‘Time for Change’.

Commenting on the event, Brian Tellis, President, EEMA India, said, “EEMAGINE is intended as a forum for knowledge sharing and brainstorming with influential thought leaders and likeminded people of the industry. EEMA being the first and only body of its kind in the country seeks to bring together professionals and organizations operating in this space through this extensive platform every year. I am confident that this year’s convention will definitely help the industry to make great progress and shall positively impact business and society.”
