In a first of its kind move – members of the Event Equipment Services Association’s (EESA) working committee formally met with counterparts of the Karnataka Event Management Association (KEMA), and the two associations mutually agreed to come together to form a Joint Working Committee (JWC) with three representatives from each association, who will work together in effectively addressing the common concerns of the event management and technical services fraternities, while also acting as a unified voice in representing the entire event fraternity in Karnataka when communicating with the state government, chambers of commerce, and other key decision making offices.
KEMA nominated Mr Srikant Kanoi(Vice President - KEMA, Director - Ethereal Celebrations Management), Mr Pradeep Naik (General Secretary - KEMA, MD - Fuel India) andMr Ashwin (Member EC - KEMA, GM Marketing - DNA Networks) to represent the association within the JWC, whereas EESA nominated Mr Vinod Bangera (Joint Secretary – EESA, Director – Systematic Inc), Mr Raghav R (Member – EESA, Director – LEDVISION), and Mr Shankar Devraj (Member – EESA, Director – Firstake Productions) to be the active participants within the JWC.
