Elaborating on the theme for the festival, MICA’s Director, Prof Atul Tandan, said, “The Black Box signifies ‘space’ – that is, the consumer’s mind, a space in which the consumer operates. It is the amalgamation of cultural shifts and attitudinal changes; the sum and substance of everything that defines the new-age Indian Consumer.”

Some of the main events of the three-day festival include ‘SBI Bankonus’, the Marketing Plan, ‘Mudra Mindbenders’, the brand case study by Mudra and Paras, ‘MICA EDC Cerebrus’, the business plan competition, ‘TAM Newsbeat, the TAM Media Research Paper Presentation, ‘Crosstalk’, the Parliamentary debate, and ‘Nash it out’, the game theory game.

For the quizzers, MICANVAS ’06 would offer three quizzes – ‘Business Barons’ (the business quiz), ‘Inquisition’ (the trivia quiz), and ‘Casting Couch’ (the entertainment quiz). The events will be interspersed with workshops on integrated marketing communications, film studies and Salsa dance.
