With over 300 leaders expected to join this calendar event, one can expect to see the masters in the department of technology, marketing and media fraternity. True to the Unconference model, there will be no lectures in conference rooms. Alongside discussions on the future of data, digital, technology and content, technology demonstrations, cooking, fireside chats on key topics and many more. In addition to the many interesting sessions this year, each day will start with sports and end with an evening extravaganza – created and presented by the participants.
This year ‘The Pitch’ forum is drawn to spark conversation around creating a communication strategy that can help imbibe a sporting culture across different faculties, gender, age group and across the country. It is going to be all about ‘how sports can help build a better nation being the most time-tested tool for human and societal development’.
With no pre-set agenda, the schedule is up to the attendees to set. Each day there are discussions across myriad of topics that attendees can choose to participate in basis their interests and passion. Apart from ‘The Pitch’, there are few flagship properties too that mark the success for Stream and they are - Ignite Talk for fast talkers to The Gadgethon & The Tech Lab for geeks, Stream Cinema for cinema lovers, Cooking Madness for those who believe cooking is therapeutic, Extravaganza for the musical and gregarious souls, Health & Wellness for those young at heart, The Workshop for the craftsmen of the group, and the very entertaining Stream Band for the musicians and karaoke singers.
