WHO WE ARE
Ahmedabad Live is a media and marketing company that has successfully built a strong community of over 1,61,000+ people across different social media platforms who share the love for Ahmedabad, Gujarat. From the first step taken on June 1, 2017, to this day, our Founder Manan Shah and his team have galloped through many milestones and are all set to run more.
From Ahmedabad’s biggest concerts to college fests, from carnivals to food fests, and from exhibitions to conferences, we have touched every corner that makes Ahmedabad the unique, beautiful, and warm city that it is.
Ahmedabad Live is a portal designed to be the one-stop destination for everything related to the Heritage City. We feature all that makes the heart of Ahmedabad – heritage sites, textile industry, movies, restaurants, artists, photographers, bloggers, authentic regional food, local brands, people, and much more.
After being a part of over 200 major events organized in Ahmedabad, we have become a household name. Some of the major events we have partnered with are TEDx, Hungrito Food Festival, Divalicious, and Ahmedabad International Literature Festival.
Our favorite events are college fests where we get to interact with the youth and explore our city from their perspective. Some of the colleges we have partnered with are the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad for IIM Chaos and Nirma College for Pratibimb. We were also a part of Atharva Fest hosted by the Indian Institute of Management, Indore.
Along with promoting our local artists and their projects like Folk Rang by Meghdhanush, we have also been a part of When Chai Met Toast-DA IICT, Darshan Rawal, Aditya Gadhvi, DJ Snake, Bryan Adams – The Ultimate Tour, Neha Kakkar – Live in Concert, and VirDas – Love Tour.
Focusing on engagement, interaction, evaluation, and in-depth analysis, we have changed our approach and updated our campaigns to suit the needs of Amdavadis and their business goals.
Founder & CEO
What is the one thing that people associate most with Ahmedabad? Sidi Saiyyed ni Jaali! Its intricate latticework, its intertwined design and its grandeur look acts as an identity for Ahmedabad. It was transformed from a stone into the filigree it is; just like Manan. It’s because of him that the brand is where it is right now. He is like the inter-twined design of the banyan and the palm tree of Ahmedabad Live that grows into long lofty branches of flora like our 140K+ community.
