How is event planning overall as an industry?
TBH, event planning is a multi core industry. Be it private happenings or public events, everything now is done on ‘big scale’. Rise in disposable income coupled with time constraints that people face has led to the development of the event and wedding planning sector in our country. Weddings are very expensive in India. The situation is not different when it comes to spending on Birthday Parties, Meetings and other Corporate Events. In a bid to make one’s event or wedding unique, the event or wedding planning industry derives a reasonable demand owing to their professionalism and touch of precision to make the entire process smooth. An event or wedding planner becomes imperative to streamline the entire process and attention to the minutest detail. This could only be fulfilled by very few experienced and recognized planners.
Therefore, event planning is still unorganized and is in the phase of growth and development. There are credibility and professionalism issues that the clients face, as most of the clients cannot find value for money.
Formalized education in this field is required to cater to the needs of this ever growing field. It is not so easy to become an efficient event planner, one needs to learn a lot of things including organizational skills, technical knowledge, P.R., marketing, advertising, catering, logistics, decor, glamour identity, human relations, study of law and licenses, risk managements, budgeting, study of allied like television and other medias and several other things. Once all these areas get in place, we will definitely be heading towards more organized and structured field of event planning, where we will find a happy and satisfied client!!
