Showtime Events bags India@60 Celebration in New York

Showtime Events (India) Pvt. Ltd has bagged India@60, an initiative spearheaded by CII along with the Government of India, to celebrate 60 years of Indian Independence in New York. Commencing from September 23, the celebration will be for a period of three days. Showtime Events will be responsible for creating and showcasing the essence of India.

To illustrate India in its grandeur, an official communiqué said, “Showtime Events is creating a mammoth 50’x30’ replica of the Taj Mahal which will form a spectacular backdrop for the cultural showcase at Bryant Park, wherein prominent designers such as Ritu Kumar, Raghavendra Rathore and Wendell Rodricks will showcase their ensembles.”

The communiqué further stated, “Adding the required zing to the event would be live music performances by Sivamani, Louis Banks, Remo Fernandes and the Colonial Cousins. Dance extravaganzas ranging from Bollywood numbers choreographed by dance maestro Saroj Khan, to an array of folk dance performances from across the country specially collated and presented by the Sangeet Natak Akademi – India@60 promises to be a visual spectacle of sorts.”

The events are a culmination of over six months of planning and execution, and will see a team of over 20 professionals and technical crew from Showtime Events supervising décor set-ups and coordinating performances by over 200 artistes, models and dancers from across the country.

Being the official event managers for CII, Showtime Events will man the entire gamut of events that include a three-day India Cultural and Handicraft Exhibition at Bryant Park in Manhattan from September 23-25.
