EMC: Over 30 years in the event and entertainment industry
EMC from India is one of the companies awarding with THE BIZZ for the first time ever to demonstrate business excellence and leadership.
The company received the award in the past ceremony of the BIZZ Europe at Prague in the Czech Republic along with other 30 companies that also were recognized on the event.
We had an interview with Craig Saldanha, Managing Partner, who told us the following:
A brief description of your company
Founded in 2011, EMC is a full-service event management company that offers end to end solutions for large-scale corporate and social events. With a combined experience of over 30 years in the event and entertainment industry, the 3 founding partners Ernleigh Martins, Mackenzie Pereira and Craig Saldanha offer a vibrant and refreshing take on varied aspects of the operation.
“Name any feature that may arise during the course of planning or executing an event and therein lies our forte.”
Weddings/Celebrations: At EMC, we create everlasting memories by celebrating life. No celebration is too big, nothing is too much. Celebrations often turn out to be a test of endurance; chaos and pandemonium reigning. Our objective is that the host enjoys the experience rather than give in to the numerous concerns that arise.
Corporate Events: Corporate Events were usually synonymous with roundtable discussions and drab meetings, and we aim to change that. We offer a wide range of possibilities to turn these drab scenarios into more enjoyable experiences. Not only are we adept at providing an eye-catching yet formal set design but also catering to multiple event technology concepts that make the event more captivating and memorable.
Leisure: Goa, our home base, provides an ideal setting for any leisure activity that one wishes to indulge in. Ranging from corporate team building activities to exotic getaways for a bunch of close friends or family, we understand the variations and limitations of each facet.
What are the goals of your company?
“Our unwavering intent is to efficiently customize and execute innovative yet value based event solutions that redefine the industry’s epitome of quality”.
What are the competitive advantages of your company?
Our biggest strength is and will always be our employees. Our team of skilled and practically trained event management experts strives to deliver the highest level of quality in the most cost-effective manner.
Apart from this, the partners of EMC also own an Event production/decor division as well as Lumasonic Tech Rental Pvt. Ltd. which operates as our sister concern for event technicals. Our in-depth knowledge of these 2 major aspects of the industry (Fabrication & Technology) generally give us an edge over our competitors.
What has been achieved by your company since its creation?
Since our inception in 2011, EMC has grown from a small solely local operation into a reputed award-winning organization that operates across the country. With a few minor steps, EMC will soon operate internationally as well
What projects has your company developed?
Some of our most notable projects are as mentioned below
Film Bazaar by NFDC – South Asia’s largest film market (End to end design & execution for 6 years)
Google India PSP awards (End to end design & execution)
India International Gold convention (End to end design & execution)
The annual conference of Research Society for the Study of Diabetes in India (theme design & execution)
Project Countdown – Goa’s largest ever beachside New Year’s Eve festival (End to end conceptualization, design & execution)
What are the most challenging goals that your company has accomplished?
The rapid increase in the amount of new and unskilled competitors that arise every single day and are willing to deliver a sub-par product to a clientele of different industries who do not possess the necessary information to understand this. This has become such an immense challenge that it has even begun to affect the major players in the industry. In spite of this, EMC has continued to grow steadily with a year on year increase in revenue.
Another challenge is delivering International standards of quality and reliability for corporate and social events while having to manage issues that arise from being located in a laid back holiday destination. Goa is a beautiful state and the demeanor of the people is generally an amazing feeling when on holiday, however, it’s not that appealing when dealing with deadlines and precision. To overcome this EMC focuses on building relationships with partners and vendors whose main aim is reliability.
