Industry Speak

  • The team from NAME has had a big role to play in our event ‘India Speed Week’. Through a skeleton group before the event and the whole group during the event, The Institution actively participated with us, at every stage. I salute to the entire group of students, its faculty & managers in pulling this off bravely and successfully for us and with us. I will look forward to NAME’s enthusiastic participation in the future as well.


  • The Event Industry in East India is growing & It’s good to see an event academy in Kolkata giving the young aspirants complete training as per Industry requirements. I had a wonderful interaction with NAME students. They are full of energy & have eagerness to learn. We would be happy to have them working in for our events in Bombay as well.

  • I think N.A.M.E is very beneficial for discovering choices. It has helped kids, know themselves better and become leaders. It has also found a way to give back to the community through volunteering and provides kids with in-numerous other options.


  • I have got many students as an intern for my events from different institutes but N.A.M.E is a kind of Institute which produce genuine professionals having sound knowledge in Event Planning and Management. I am sure that I am going to take interns to create my professional team for my upcoming Events from this Institute.


  • The first thing I noticed about the Academy and its students is the spirit of creativity and positivity. As a visiting faculty, it was a very welcome change from many of the other institutions I have taught in. The willingness to try out new concepts and ideas, the infectious enthusiasm was very encouraging. The students seemed to be quite well-informed about many concepts and premises which made the session extremely interesting.


  • A growing institute with a strong vision, and an essential place for all young and aspiring event managers.

  • National Academy of media and Events was a pool of opportunity for me. I got a great exposure to the event industry. The theory classes and the on the ground training were very helpful in the better understanding of this industry. Also, our team got to work on our own project where I built a great confidence and professionalism which will be helpful throughout my life.
    Thanks to NAME for giving all these opportunities and also the internship in Mumbai where I can grow in the full-fledged industry of events.

  • National Academy of Media and Event has helped me to take a huge step towards my dream and my career. Each faculty imparted such valuable knowledge out of there experience and the on-ground training was so enriching and fulfilling. I feel, coming to NAME was one of my best decision ever.
    Also working on the own project helped in making some contacts, adapting to the industry and step into the profession of Event Management in the period of the one-year diploma course.
    Getting an internship in Mumbai in a company like Oaks Management and Consultancy Pvt Ltd was another big step. It feels like NAME has no boundaries to learn and explore.
