Vibrant Gujarat, the international conclave branded and marketed as mankind’s Global Gateway to India was both a spectacle of cosmic proportions, and a grueling (yet immensely rewarding) experience for all those involved.
The 7th edition of the seven-day Summit kicked off on January 7, 2015 with the ‘Pravasi Bharatiya Divas’ (PBD) exhibitions (7-9 Jan’15), as a sort of precursor to the main centerpiece; Vibrant Gujarat (11-13 Jan 15), held at the Exhibition Ground, near Mahatma Mandir, Gandhinagar.
CIIE had a stall at the aptly named Innovation Pavilion and were fortunate enough to also be showcased at IIM Ahmedabad’s stall in the Education Pavilion. At the CIIE stall, there was strong interest from both corporates and early-stage entrepreneurs alike. Over the course of both the Trade Show and the Vibrant Gujarat Summit, we generated over 1000 individual footfalls, and are presently in touch with over 15 leads.
Hina Nainani and Harshad Sambamurthy have a chat about their experience at the Summit.
