Some of the prominent speakers at the Summit include, Abdul Khan, Head - Marketing, Tata Tele services; Ajay Kelkar, Founder & COO, CEquity, and former CMO, HDFC Bank; Pradeep Shrivastava, CMO, Idea Cellular Services; and Sanjay Tripathy, EVP & Head Marketing, HDFC Standard Life, among others.

The Summit will see three case study presentations by eminent marketers followed by a panel discussion on ‘Impact of Slowdown on Marketing’ and key-note address. The three case studies will be presented by Suparna Mitra, Global Marketing Head, Titan Industries; Vikram Malhotra, Head - Marketing, Kingfisher Airlines; and Sandip Tarkas, President - Customer Strategy, Future.

The Summit will be held at Hotel Taj Lands End in Mumbai from 5 pm onwards. The associate sponsors for the CMO Summit are Mail Today and My FM.
