Jaipur to host the third edition of WPP Stream

Jaipur will be hosting third edition of WPP Stream (un) conference for unconventional thinkers from 17-20 February, 2016. Hosted by WPP Country Manager, India, Ranjan Kapur and Chairman and Founder, Marico Innovation Foundation, Harsh Mariwala, the three day event will challenge and debate the digital future of communications, creativity, and business.

With over 300 leaders expected to join this calendar event, one can expect to see rising stars, from the technology, marketing and media industries to jam with like-minded attendees in a format, which challenges a typical conference set up-No keynote speeches, no PowerPoint presentations, no boredom- a thinkfest ,one of its kind.

Talking about Stream Kapur said, “Stream is an unusual annual event that has the marketing community thinking about the changes affecting the way we will be interacting and communicating in the future.  There is a strong focus on digital.  Participants from diverse fields of marketing, communication, film, theatre and the arts come together and share thoughts on what the future holds.  We refer to it as the 'un conference' that encourages out of the box thinking.”

From 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, The Pitch for the socially conscious, 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. Stream promises to be an event that will leave its attendees amazed, inspired, and armed with new thinking, new ideas and new friends.

Tushar Vyas, Chief Strategy Officer, GroupM, South Asia, said, “This is the coolest thinkfest where people from diverse fields come under one roof to discuss the future of digital and what it means for communications, creativity and business. A great platform which pushes people to think unconventional and out of box concepts and ideas.”

WPP Stream is a unique thought leadership initiative designed by WPP group to bring together the industry leaders on a single interactive platform. It will see the coming together of CEOS from across the WPP network, WPP clients and partners from across the industry, including silicon valley start-ups, VCs, social entrepreneurs, publishers, academics and media companies.
