Dream Event & Services: Dream. Design. Deliver

Bala Nicholas,  FounderEvents are becoming a powerful tool around the world to create brand loyalty, introduce products, and generate revenue for organizations. As a concept, it has been around for a long time but it is just now that businesses have begun to pay more attention to the services that are offered. The industry has evolved a lot in the past few years and is now redefining itself in the view of the manifold growth of the various happenings in the commercial as well as in the non commercial world. With this rise in popularity of events, a growing number of young entrepreneurs have launched event planning startups in India. These startups are working to upgrade the industry and develop solutions that help businesses more effectively leverage events while improving the overall consumer experience. And honestly, hiring an event management startup makes a whole lot of sense. In many situations, it is actually crucial for the overall success of the event that is planned since the particular business that wants to organize the meeting might not have the necessary experience and connections to guarantee success.

Bangalore based DREAMS EVENTS AND SERVICES is one of such innovative startups in the events industry that offers a wide range of event management services. “Be it a Virtual conference, Award ceremony, Product launch, Family event or Sports event, we have you covered. We are a one stop solution to all your corporate situations,” speaks Bala Nicholas, Founder. Known as a corporate event planner and touted to be one of the best event management companies, DREAMS’ forte lies in delivering cutting edge, innovative and professional event management services. DREAMS is a bunch of fun loving, energetic and passionate people working towards the common goal of providing exceptional services. “From inspirational ideas to stunning productions, strong themes and creative programs, we do everything to create memorable experiences and branding opportunities that exceed customer expectations. We take pride in presenting ourselves as one of the best in the industry,” says Bala.

The Inception Story
A Master Graduate in Information Technology, Bala stands out for his perseverance and superior communication skills. Before venturing out with his own firm, he worked as a Project Manager in Hewlett Packard. There, he would host events within the organization as event management was his passion. He has hosted many events while he worked at HP. He understood the pulse of the people and organized events that stole the audience’s hearts.

As the years went by, he decided to pursue his passion earnestly. He zeroed in upon creating DREAMS EVENTS & SERVICES in the month of December 2014 aiming to serve corporate clients as he knew the mindset of the people inside the corporate industry better and also understood the hassles and issues clients faced. “These four and half years have taught me that every product has a life cycle and event management is no different. The life cycle of an event begins at conceptualization and ends at delivery. We concentrate on each and every step of the life cycle and motivate the team to follow certain
processes and standards to make the event successful,” Bala enlightens.

Surpassing the challenges of costing and flexibility that subsists in the industry, the company has carved a niche for itself to be termed as one of the most affordablecompanies with superior quality deliverables. “We are the only ones who accommodate for last minute changes without any hassles. The stability we have achieved is because of our brand. Our team not only works professionally but also shares a good rapport with the clients,” he mentions. With inhouse production, creative designers conceptualize, and equipment for audiovisuals, it seamlessly manages an entire event with proper coordination between the teams.

In terms of revenue, we have grown 9 times in five years,” he avers.

In essence, DREAMS EVENTS is here to create memorable andsuccessful events that exceed client's expectations, nurture relationships and delight the senses one client, one event, one experience at a time. “So far, our primary focus was on events.
