Celebrating Inspiring Women In Events

The event, experiential and entertainment industry in India is filled with wonderful, inspiring women who contribute greatly to the fraternity. Power Women In Events are extraordinary women who lead by example, live with a purpose and inspire others to be more and do more. They are our industry's (mostly silent) heroes, they are the backbone to many a magical event. They are game-changers, movers and shakers, and role models. With courage, confidence, commitment, innovation and integrity, the Power Women In Events inspire others to go further, making a ripple impact across the events, experiential and entertainment industry.

We at Eventpreneur are moving the needle to recognize the achievements of women making an impact within our industry locally, nationally and globally. We invite you to be a champion of women advancement in events.

THE PWE ICON - THE TWO SIDES OF THE CROWN

The Upward Crown is a salute to the ability to lead their peers into the future, regardless of circumstances, societal barriers and preconceived notions about their gender. The Inverted Crown below acknowledges the relentless pursuit of progress and perfection, irrespective of their position or designation.
