Noida: “The most badly effected segment of entertainment Industry during Pandemic is the Events. A huge loss of revenue has occurred either because of cancellation or postponement of the shows. Entertainment has changed its shape. Everything has come to mobiles, computers and television Channels. There is a need to look for more,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President 13th Global Film Festival Noida 2020 initiating the seminar-Need of Events in Entertainment Industry.
“Many community events are planned months or even a year in advance, but with so many unknowns amid the pandemic this hasn’t been possible. Now that the prime event season of summer is here, with many communities’ best-loved events cancelled, it is still possible to plan events with shorter notice and provide a source of hope, positivity and connection for your community,” said Dr. Sanjeev Layek of WASME.
“It will be important for events to adhere to the new safety guidelines. That is the way events can be resorted and we can move further,” added Indrajit Ghosh of MSME Chamber of Commerce
“Live musical performances and music festivals are among the best-loved types of events but can be very difficult to plan given the ever-changing guidelines and public health restrictions,” said Peter Ferris of Ferris Entertainment, London, United Kingdom.
“Hosting meetings and events post COVID-19 would require people and event management companies adjusting on a large scale. It would require a combined effort of all the sectors to kickstart the industry again,” said Abdul Mohammed Dewale President AASGON London, UK.
“One of the real problems the industry would face in the long run is that it would be tough to re-organize an event when they don’t have any timescale. As there is no specific time limit of complete eradication of COVID-19 or its control, it is hard to predict any rescheduling of events soon said Princess Angelique Monet an American multi-media talent and former Ms. Black South Carolina USA.
Gaurav Gupta of Lions Club of Delhi Veg., Rhythm Dutta of DEARC Entertainment, Dr. Vaidehi Taman of Afternoon English Daily also expressed their views during seminar. Later the seminar was followed by award function. Some of the best event and social organizations were honoured with ICMEI Excellence Award for their sincere contribution to media and Entertainment Industry.
