Tantraa Events managed and executed the event at Gateway of India. It's one of the most difficult location in Mumbai to execute an event as it comes with a lot of issues related to security. Set up had started 3 days prior to the event at the same time location was open for public as well, so the security was the biggest challenged faced.
Challenges faced were VVIP Protocol, security, climate changes.
