Tell us about yourself:
Mrs. Mariana started her career in the events 6 years back. She was involved with various activities such as ticket sales, logistics, transportation, artists, hotel reservations, securities etc. After working in an events company for a while, she realized that this is something that she really wants to do. According to her, she’s quite communicative, she’s good at planning multiple things while keeping a cool head and that she gives everything of hers and values everything of the events industry. “This is when I decided to pursue my passion and decided to join the events industry full time dedicatedly”. Thus that’s how she started her own firm.
Your opinion about virtual events?
“I have been a panelist on a virtual platform. It will not replace face to face experience. But virtual events will have a greater impact and reach since it comes with a greater economic advantage. It saves up on transportation and other logistics. Now we have more space opened up for such technological changes.”
When asked about the future of virtual events, she says “I think we should update ourselves to these changes, and when everything gets back to normal, it will facilitate us more.”
Your Opinion about wedding expo
“It’s a great place for us exhibitors and new couples. It’s a place where people can get good insights and you get to meet new people”.
Your opinion about Espousal
“This is a great opportunity to bring all the experts as speakers on a common platform. There will be a lot of stalls. It is something that will be accessible on everyone’s hands. This will have a great visibility than any other expo. This is the first time something like this is happening, and I can see more advantages for this. You can participate in this while sitting at home. It’s a great opportunity for vendors and stall owners to get a great visibility.”
