Vinod Raghavan’s foray into performing arts and music began as a student volunteer with SPICMACAY (Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture Amongst Youth). This instilled in him a resolute interest for art, and he moved on to Banyan Tree Events, a premier events management company in Mumbai, focusing on high-caliber live entertainment, a pioneer in creating this niche market. He has had an impressive innings at Banyan Tree since its inception rising to become the COO in just 16 years. Recognizing the multi-cultural dimensions here, it was the natural step forward to extend his work and bring his vast experience with stage art to the Middle East.
Vinod Raghavan has designed events world-wide for a cross-section of the society, ranging the Kennedy Centre for Arts in Washington DC, various leading corporate houses in India, to holding cultural evenings for International delegates of Petrotech. He has also had the privilege of organizing a commemorative stamp release event for the government of India at the Indian Prime Minister’s residence. He comes with access to the full gamut of performing artistes and maestros from all genres of music, dance and theatre.
