Speaking about launch Karl Karla, said, “Having curated innumerable shows with multiple artists over a decade, I noticed that the world was changing rapidly and therefore the North American Bollywood Live industry needed an upgrade and an organized structure of operations. We were aware of the challenges faced by the artists, the creators, the organizers, and most importantly, the audiences. ShowFest tried to amplify the quality of entertainment while addressing the challenges and providing solutions for a better customer experience. The vision is to create a loyalty based community for Bollywood enthusiasts in North America.

Sharing about ShowFest, AanandDawda, Founder & Managing Partner, said, “ I started my career with Bollywood Live events and have toured across 27 countries and over 60 cities. It’s fair to say that as creators we have been through every possible challenge and crisis a live entertainment event could present. Over the years we saw those challenges repeating themselves over and over again which made us wonder how to provide a solution that was not a temporary fix but a permanent transformation. We curated ShowFest with the aim to create a win-win ecosystem and provide everyone associated with a seamless wonderful experience. Our vision is to become a part of the lifestyle of our customers and provide them with an experience that transcends beyond entertainment.
