  • Organised players in the industry to gain from Demonetization
  • eyes 100 pc YoY growth this Dec 31 st
  • EMI options available to make bookings for celebrations
Demonetization would have shaken the country from a slumber, but it created a great business opportunity for few sectors! While the cash crunch is being seen as a pain point, celebrations are unlikely to stop at the turn of the year.

With the possibility of Hyderabad staying host to close to 300 events/ shows/ special dinners to fall on the eve of New Year day, Demonetization might be termed a non issue. Players in the event industry believe, over 95 pc revellers will go cashless this Dec 31 st night, and the industry might seen a jump in sales, in comparison to last season.
Commenting on the business prospects, Mr Naidu Darapaneni, Founder & CEO, said, “Event organisers in the past had the option of collecting gate fees in cash; but demonetization has forced all to take e-commerce route. And large players like MeraEvents, provides a great opportunity to reach out to potential customers.”
“Industry players believe, lack of cash will not make any difference to the New Year plans; and even in the past, 95 pc trades at such celebratory events were e-transactions, and this might reach the vertex with this Season.”
However, industry all feels that few of the unorganized and small scale players, who are reluctant to go online and do not provide value for money, will get hit adversely. Many such players have already shut shop and will be seen exiting this business. This move nevertheless will strengthen the industry further. And industry would not complain!
