Hyderabad, June 2024: Telangana Chamber of Events Industry (TCEI) – India`s largest Regional Events Industry Association, is hosting the 3rd Edition of the South Indian Wedding Planners Congress 3rd TCEI SIWPC GLOBAL 2024 and 7th TCEI Event Excellence Awards 2024, on June 14th and 15th, 2024 at the magnificent Hall 4 of Hitex Exhibition Centre, Hyderabad. 

The Press Conference for this largest congregation of national and international Wedding Planners, was addressed by Shri Jupally Krishna Rao, Hon`ble Minister for Tourism, Culture, Excise & Prohibition along with Smt K. Nikhila, IAS, Director, Department of Tourism, Govt Of Telangana; Shri K Ramesh Naidu, IPS, Managing Director TSTDC;  Shri Alla Balaram Babu, President TCEI; Shri Ravi Bura, General Secretary, TCEI; Shri TG Srikanth, Head Hitex, at a formal ceremony held today at The Plaza, Paryatak Bhavan, Green Lands, Ameerpet, Hyderabad. Also present on the occasion were members of TCEI spear heading the 2 projects namely Shri Sai Shravan Madiraju, Convenor-SIWPC Global 2024; Shri Ramm K Muppana, Convenor, TCEI Event Excellence Awards 2024; Shri Hirish Reddy, Co-Convenor, Shri Kumar Raja: Co-Convenor, Shri Saurab Sureka, Co-Convenor and Shri Sudhakar Yarabadi, Co-Convenor. The gathering paid rich tributes to Shri Ramoji Rao, for his initiatives in making the event industry in Hyderabad to flourish. 

Speaking on the occasion Shri Jupally Krishna Rao said, its an honor and privilege for Telangana, especially Hyderabad, the hub of MICE, to host such a prestigious convention of the South Indian Wedding Planners, the 3rd TCEI SIWPC GLOBAL 2024 and the 7th TCEI Event Excellence Awards 2024, on June 14th and 15th, 2024 at the HITEX Exhibition Centre. Though Telangana is acknowledged as the hub of destination wedding, it is mostly restricted to in and around Hyderabad. During the wedding season all the resorts located in the surroundings of Hyderabad are fully packed, in fact people from all over India are celebrating their family’s lifetime cherish able wedding occasion at Hyderabad. The interior of Telangana has several destinations with exceptional scenic beauty, like Nagarjuna sagar, the largest irrigation project spread across 2000 acres, is a scenic beauty offering excellent viewpoint of valleys, greenery coupled with rich mystery of Mahayana Buddhism. It is a sacred place for many Asian countries which embrace Mahayana Buddhism, it presents excellent scope for projecting it as an international wedding destination especially among the countries practicing Buddhism, Telangana Government is willing to actively support such initiative. The rich and famous in the country are spending millions of rupees on destination weddings abroad, we need to tap this segment and showcase our own rich and scenic destinations. In my constituency Kollapur, located 160 kms from Hyderabad, the back waters of Krishna River spread over 150 kms stretch with both sides having scenic greenery and hilly terrain presents an opportunity to have a voyage of visual treat on boats. Tourism is one area which is neglected for the last ten years in Telangana, under the leadership of our chief minister Revanth Reddy garu we are actively working towards making Telangana a global tourism hub and the ultimate destination for weddings. Telangana is having immense potential to be the hub of medical tourism, eco- tourism, spiritual tourism, MICE tourism. In this direction we are inviting investors to develop the potential tourist spots on PPP basis, which will create more employment avenues to Telangana youth. I am extremely excited about the largest South Indian Wedding Planners Congress, the 3rd TCEI SIWPC GLOBAL 2024, which I am confident will unleash the true potential of Telangana, with several national and internationally acclaimed wedding planners attending it.    

Shri Alla Balaram Babu said, Telangana Chamber of Events Industry has been in the forefront to make the event industry considered to be unorganized into an organized sector. We are bringing together all the event organizers and those supporting them, under one umbrella, today we have 450 event organizers as part of this association, that makes TCEI the largest regional event management association the country. We are not only enhancing the professionalism in the industry but also striving for the betterment of all those involved in the event industry. We are also focused on showcasing Telangana as a destination, the Somasila backwaters, a cliff with wonderful water terrain, with better infrastructure can be a Bali kind of destination. To encourage and empower event management talent from the interiors and remote areas of Telangana, we are offering scholarship and are not taking the registration fee for the SIWPC event. Through another initiative to give back to the society and be sustainable, we are tying up with the Panchayat raj and reaching out to women self-help groups, to pass on flowers from the events after they are over, to prepare incense sticks from them. We have been pursuing for industry status for event industry for some time and request this government to confer us the status. We also request you to give us a special event zone on the outskirts of the city on the lines of special economic zone, with special privileges in terms of overcoming restrictions of time and others applicable in the city. This lends impetus to the event industry to take the event experience to the next level and attract international events to the city. This idea of special event zone has not been implemented anywhere in India and will be a one of its kind models in the country to be replicated by others.      

Shri TG Srikanth said, the wedding industry is estimated to be $ 130 billion, but Hyderabad with the best of the infrastructure is not seeing much traffic of destination weddings coming to the city. The popular destination wedding locations have been Jaipur, Goa, back waters of Kerala, Uttarakhand and Hyderabad has not been the choice for this sector, despite the buzz about Hyderabad being vibrant. The TCEI SIWPC GLOBAL event held year on year is creating that momentum for Hyderabad to be counted among the wedding destinations.       

The 3rd TCEI SIWPC GLOBAL 2024, brings together experts from various facets of the Indian wedding industry. This event aims to showcase South India’s significant contributions to the world of weddings and provide a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing.
