There are various corporate partners namely Canara Bank, Union Bank Of India, HitBullsEye, Xeam Ventures IBS (ICFAI business schools) and Venus Education Services. Tinder India is the experience partner and Crax is the official snack partner. State Bank of India is the official payment partner while Canva, Crimsoune club and Roadies KoffeeHouz are the event sponsors.

PECFEST is known for organizing competitions which cover interests of a wide spectrum of students. Student Counselling Cell is an all-time achiever of bringing smiles on the faces of participants by organizing witty and exciting contests. This time a participation of 170 teams and 200 teams were recorded for the event Unveil the Culprit and Treasure Hunt respectively. Extensive participation was observed from colleges like Thapar University, Delhi University, Chandigarh University and Chitkara University. ASCE organised NEEV-The PECFEST Olympiad with 500 registrations on Day 1 and 200 registrations for Day 2. Students from all the major schools of Chandigarh participated with huge interest. ASPS conducted events namely Race to Jupiter and Para Rocket. 

Rang Punjab De event was organised by Punjabi Editorial Board of College in which there were performances which included Bhangra, Malwayi Giddha and singing. The astounding performances vividly demonstrated one of the most expressive cultures from our nation. It showed us the various ways we can experience life in Punjab in the most exhilarating ways.

Besides these events there were also numerous competitions organized by different clubs and societies of the institute. Kavyanjali, Baazar, IPL Auction, Wordict, different quizzes, Robotics competitions, Spandhan- stage play, Solo singing competition, Open Mic and treasure hunt are the various events that gathered attraction from various colleges and schools within the tri-city and outside as well.

Day 1 witnessed an exemplary footfall of participants from colleges of entire tricity and outside as well. PECFEST coordinated with various schools from Chandigarh. School students were accompanied by teachers and took part in various competitions. This fest gave them an opportunity to experience activities outside their academics. A collaboration was done with major food joints from and around the Chandigarh region and 20 food stalls were set up in the arena..
