The nicest news about nightlife in the country is that Kickstart Entertainment and National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) has announced the launch of an intellectual property created to bring India’s nightlife industry together. Yes, Danke presents India Nightlife Convention and Awards (INCA) 2016 in association with Johnnie Walker on July 17 and 18 at St. Regis.
Supporting this initiative at the meet were guest of honour Arjun Rampal, Natasha Suri, DJs Akbar Sami and Clement, Shatbhi Basu, Keenan Tham, Suved Lohia, Nicolo Morea and Sanjay Vazirani along with members of the advisory board – Riyaaz Amlani (president, NRAI, A D Singh, Dilip Joshi, Kishore DF, David De Souza and Jay Maithani.
Looking happy indeed was Aman Anand, director of Kickstart Entertainment as he felt that the nightlife industry needs recognition within the fraternity and what better way to do it other than to launch a property like India Nightlife Convention and Awards (INCA).
The idea behind conceptualizing INCA is to support and uplift the bar and nightlife industry as a majority of revenue generated contributes largely to the economy of the country. The convention includes business and informational workshops with some of the industry’s most influential entrepreneurs with an aim to expand the presence of exhibitors and enhance the scope of the mentorship program. It is an event by the industry, of the industry and for the industry.
Following the convention would be the awards ceremony recognizing the best from the bar and nightlife industry. What differentiates these awards from the quintessential nightlife awards is the transparency with which each participant will be reviewed. INCA will be announcing the categories for the awards where participants from across the country stand a chance to compete against each other.
Carefully selected jury members from main metros (Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Goa, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata) will contribute towards finalizing the entrants from their respective cities. Concurrently, bars from across India have the opportunity to enrol themselves as well as the public can vote for their favourite nightspot.
An appointed national jury will then nominate the best under each of the categories. Leading professional auditors Ernst & Young will be reviewing and tabulating the entire process revealing top finalists in each category.
