Kolkata all set to host India Today Conclave—East 2019

The India Today Group is back with the third edition of its successful and much-awaited India Today Conclave—East. This year, the Conclave will take place on December 6 and 7 at The Oberoi Grand, Kolkata. Gripping sessions at the event will see an exchange of knowledge and ideas between eminent speakers.

The India Today Conclave is the country’s most prestigious global thought platform. It has been the signature event of India’s most trusted news brand for over two decades and aims to chart a bold new future through a free and honest exchange of ideas amongst the finest global minds.

The past 15 years of India Today Conclaves have been widely acclaimed for the quality of discussions. The speakers who have addressed distinguished audiences each year include current and former heads of state, Nobel laureates, spiritual leaders, corporate heads, economists, authors, academicians, scientists, strategists, activists, filmmakers, actors and sports personalities. Since the past few years, the India Today Group has started regional editions (South, East and West) of the Conclave, which have received equal prominence and appreciation.

The Conclaves has made its mark amongst scholars, politicians and thinkers and has been acknowledged as an impactful platform that brings together an inspirational group of bright entrepreneurs, authors, inventors, cultural icons, activists, artists and political leaders from across the country. In the backdrop of the political see-saw witnessed in Maharashtra, politics has evoked a lot of interest and attention. The 2021 Assembly election in West Bengal promises to be the mother of electoral battles. India Today Conclave—East 2019 is perfectly timed to set the ball rolling for all the action that is likely to unfold.

Intellectually-gripping sessions at the signature event will see knowledge exchange amongst noted and eminent speakers such as BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, Finance Minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma, Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Kumar Modi, Union Minister of State for Environment, Forest & Climate Change Babul Supriyo, AIUDF leader Aminul Islam, LJP MP Chirag Paswan and prominent actors such as Yami Gautam, Taapsee Pannu along with Former Army Chief General Bikram Singh, and distinguished business leaders such as the Chairman of RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group Sanjiv Goenka, and Chairman of Ambuja Neotia Group Harshavardhan Neotia, among others.

India Today Conclave—East will also capture the expanse of human potential by presenting thought leaders who are triggering positive change around the world: people redefining health & wellness; breaking new ground in business practices, showbiz, art; and crucially those working on new ideas in energy and resource management as well as the economy and job creation.

Kolkata, as an integral part of the East, is not just one of India’s prime cultural hubs but also a seat of intellect. It is an economic nerve-centre, the gateway to the Northeast and the neighbouring countries, and a powerful ideas centre. With its unique mix of art, culture, politics, media, showbiz and social influencers, hosting the India Today Conclave—East in Kolkata has an amplifying effect as compared to other cities in the region.
