India Inc, it seems, is warming to the task to overcoming the current recession and looking beyond, as it prepares the groundwork for its next big leap--into the globalised economy. Business Today has announced the launch of the second edition of The Managing Tomorrow Series of corporate gatherings. A selection of India's top CEOs will discuss the theme: ‘VISION 2010: The Growth Imperative’. They will present immediate concerns and chalk out the fundamentals for the road ahead. High profile business personalities drawn from the top echelons of corporate India will also participate in the interactive discussion that will follow the presentations.
The event will also launch ‘The New Visions’, second in a series of four commemorative special issues titled India Inc.: The Next Big Leap, from Business Today.
Says Ashish Bagga, “The Business Today Managing Tomorrow Series, is an initiative to bring together India's top corporate minds to interact with each other on a common and relevant theme concerning Indian business and enterprise. We also use this initiative to launch our Special Issues, which are Collector's items.”
The first edition of the Business Today Managing Tomorrow series was held on November 30, 2001 at the Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai. The event itself was attended by the movers and shakers of India's corporate world and as one wag was heard remarking, ''never had so many cover stories been featured in the same magazine.''
The panelists this time include Jagdish Khattar, Managing Director, Maruti Udyog, P.R.S. "Bikki" Oberoi, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, East India Hotels Siddharth Verma, Managing Director, Reebok India Company, Rajiv Kaul, Managing Director, Microsoft India.
On how these event will help Business Today as a publication Ashish adds, “It is a strong Brand-building initiative which is expected to generate tremendous amount of goodwill and brand equity bringing together Corporates as sponsors, a cross-section of our readers and top decision-makers.”
Corporates associated with the event too stand to gain. A high profile and focussed audience, combined with immense media exposure in Print and TV certainly generate its share of visibility for them.
Amity Business School is partnering Business Today for this event, while Hyatt Regency is the official Host and CNBC India the media partner of the event.
