Amari Galle hosts EMF Global Convention and Awards 2018
The Experiential Managers Federation Global (EMF Global) of India, which is a national body for event managers across the country with dedicated chapters, will be hosting its fifth convention and awards ceremony at Amari Galle. This three-day event, which will be happening from 21 to 23 September 2018, will focus mainly on the outbound events and destination weddings markets for Indian event planners. Approximately 300 delegates from 18 cities across India are expected to attend the forum, including Bollywood celebrities and the crème de la crème of event organisers.
Speaking about the event, Puneet Dutta, Hotel Manager, Amari Galle said, “We are excited to have an event of this magnitude on the shores of Amari Galle. It’s been one year since we launched and we are happy to be selected to host an event of this magnitude. This kind of event gives us a tremendous opportunity to showcase Amari Galle as a unique venue and Sri Lanka as the ideal destination for outbound MICE events and the perfect location for destination weddings.”
Speaking exclusively to EVENTFAQS, Jaydeep Mehta, President, EMF remarked, “Choosing Amari Galle as the venue for this year’s event was our luck. With its spectacular view of the Indian Ocean from every angle of the hotel, it is definitely our destination of choice. With outbound events and weddings being the flavour of the season and the world rapidly transforming into one global village, event managers are bridging geographical barriers and taking Indian events and experiences to the world. The three-day convention will completely decode the outbound MICE and Weddings Management markets of five global destinations for the convention delegates and also enable them to grasp the nuances that come into play while planning international events. We’ll be joined at the convention by the tourism authorities, event suppliers and other relevant players of these five destinations to make the EMF Global Convention and Awards a truly enriching and learning experience for attendees.”
EMF is an initiative of the Indian event fraternity formed with an idea to create a common platform for the members of the fraternity to come together to debate, ideate and share knowledge to take the industry to the next level.
