What is this registration all about?
Registration for the event means that you sign up for one of our promotion packages for the event. Depending on the event, registration packages prices/charges change. We usually have 3-4 different packages for the participants to suit their promotion requriements and budget constraints, if any. Please speak to one of our coordinators for more details or if you have a specific question or concern.
How much does registration cost?
Registration charges vary from event to event and also on the kind of promotion requirements of the participants. Please speak to one of our coordinators for more details.
Why are you charging for the awards?
We do not charge a dime for the awards. The purpose of these awards is to recognize the exemplary contributions of individuals and organizations, in their respective line of businesses. The registration charges are for branding, promotions, and copyrights. These cost a whole of lot of money and so, we divide/distribute the costs amongst the winners so that it becomes reasonable and affordable for each winner to go for an extensive promotion and branding of their product(s) and/or services.
Do you accept layaways or payment in installments?
We expect full upfront payment within twenty-four (24) hours on receipt of the invoice. However, we do understand, it might not always be possible to make the entire payment in one-go and so, we also accept half (50%) of the total payment within twenty-fours (24) hours and the remaining amount, within the next two (2) weeks from the date of receipt of the invoice. Please speak to one of our coordinators for more details.
Can I customize my registration package?
Customization of registration packages are highly discouraged. The reason being that the charges are based on market price with the best deal or value for money for the participants. However, if you still want to go for customization please speak to one of our coordinators for more details.
Where are the events usually held?
Events are held at different locations throughout India and at times, at different international locations. Please check with one of our coordinators for more venue specific details.
Does The Corporate Event provide/make travel and accommodation arrangements for the partcipants?
Yes, we do. However, those are complementary only with our platinum and silver packages. Our platinum packages include complementary two (2) economy class air-tickets and a two (2) days stay at a 3-star hotel or OYO rooms. Our silver package only includes two (2) economy class air-tickets. Extra tickets and accomodation arrangements cost extra. Please speak to one of our coordinators for more specific details.
Do you stick to the event date, chief/celebrity guest, and/or the venue? Or do you change them?
We try our best NOT to change any of those because for us such changes becomes a huge logistical challenge, or a nightmare, if you may call it so! However, sometimes, due to unavoidable circumstances, including but not limited to, force majeure, we are forced to change any or all of those mentioned in the question. For example, for our last event, Ms. Neha Sharma, our celebrity guest, quite unfortunately fel sick just prior to the event, and we had to request Ms. Chitrangada Singh grace our event. It takes a lot of planning and background work to organize an event! And no organizer would like to go for a change once things have been decided.
Do you organize events at international locations?
Yes of course!
