It fills my heart with joy unspeakable, as I rise in response to thank you all for the overwhelming support bestowed to the Exhibition Excellence Awards initiative. My special thanks to the eminent dignitaries from the ministries, esteemed jury members, delegates, sponsors and partners who participated in the EEA 2019. Backed with staunch determination to promote the Indian exhibition industry, we had launched the Exhibition Excellence Awards initiative in 2016 and it is a proud moment for us to realize that today EEA has transformed into a mega initiative for the Indian exhibition industry. The event was featured in the Times of India and an exclusive telecast on National Television Channel – ET Now, ensured tremendous visibility to the industry and its champions. EEA 2019 was unique in itself due to the unprecedented government support it got, KPMG handling the nominations and an independent jury screening all entries. With stringent parameters and transparent processes, the EEA 2019 has set a benchmark that is at par with the globally best. Do go through this issue to find out the detailed report on EEA 2019 along with the list of all the winners!
I am also delighted to announce our upcoming new initiatives for the industry. These initiatives will further strengthen our commitment to the industry. MICE is amongst the fastest growing sectors. MICE Showcase is a monthly magazine dedicated to the MICE / Business Tourism industry. Trade associations are all around us and they are playing a major role in pushing the growth of the respective sectors they serve. They are also actively engaged in organising exhibitions for their industry. Association Buzz is a monthly tabloid that will feature latest news from the world of trade associations. Today, corporates are committing significant portions of their budgets into exhibitions. Exhibitor Cell will be a dedicated platform for their knowledge, training and for facilitating their participation in tradeshows. With this, I invite your valuable feedback and look forward to your continued support and faith in our initiatives.
