Launched by The Touchwood Group, the firm, after two productive and fulfilling decades in the industry, wanted to leave their mark and embark upon an educational and creative journey. They plan to do so by teaching young talent about the industry and giving them a direction to head in.

The episode was curated by Vijay Arora, Director, Touchwood Group & co-founder, WedEd.
Focused on the relation between the wedding industry and the need for technology, the panelist explored how new tech and designing help refine the experience of the event. Participants were offered the opportunity to “load and re-load their tech gyaan.” The three panelists specialized in technology associated with weddings. The discussions revolved around video-mapping, LED-mapping, customizable technology, and experiences that are shaped primarily by technology. Technology can add a significant wow-factor to weddings- right from the chandelier to the stage, everything can be customized using technology. A lot of the discussion also revolved around the cost-factor of technology-oriented décor, which was surprisingly found to be at par with regular décor. Furthermore, technology is an important aspect in the content creation space and the discussion was aimed at bringing forth the benefits of the same.
