Kindly share the USP of your company.
We at Paras Art Studio specialise in providing turnkey services for exhibitions, events and conferences in India and abroad. We have been in this business for more than 60 years now and have one of the largest infrastructure/ production based out of New Delhi. We have the expertise to provide services for stand construction in India and abroad, large scale outdoor construction, events and conferences setups across India.
What have you done in terms of technology?
We have started integrated technology solutions for our different services. We strongly believe in the power of technology and the need to upgrade ourselves on a daily basis. We are capable of providing technology at
par with any global company at a much lesser cost.
What are the trends in terms of temporary soundproof halls?
These days a lot of largescale events have the requirement to build soundproof halls and most of the venues in our country today don't have many existing built-up soundproof hall facilities. That's where the need arises, building soundproof halls of different capacities in one single hall. Depending on the budget and event requirement we have in the past built 100 per cent soundproof halls of capacities up to 1,000 pax.
What are the trends in building hygienic temporary bathrooms for tented events?
A lot of events happen outdoor in complete makeshift infrastructure. Earlier companies used to provide chemical washrooms also commonly called as porta loos. There used to be a lot
of complaints about the hygiene for these kind of washrooms. This problem made way to find a solution. And hence luxury toilet vans were introduced. But these vans had limited capacity and hence we had to overcome the problem for capacity. About five years ago, we were one of the first companies in India to design and produce makeshift washrooms. These washrooms are as good any five-star hotel washrooms in terms ambience, hygiene and functionality.
What are the projects that you have lined up for 2020?
We are ending 2019 on a good note with large scale projects like Petrotech 2019, AIOC 2019, India Pavilion at EEF2019, to name a few. We are all geared up to welcome 2020 with projects lined up for Auto Expo, Elecrama, and Convergence. We are the official show contractor for a medical conference with over 8,000 Pax to be held at an outdoor venue in Agra.
