Speaking about the upcoming ‘Festival of Business’, Mr Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, said, “We are proud to present our ‘Festival of Business – Ushering Economic Resurgence’ initiative. Throughout the pandemic, and even as the industry now prepares to bounce back, Informa Markets in India has consistently stayed engaged with its stakeholders. Apart from the plethora of digital events, we hosted in-person events in different cities, to encouraging testimonials from our stakeholders.

“According to recent industry reports, an overwhelming 81 per cent of Indian professionals believe that the occurrence of Covid-19 reinstates the value of in-person events and wish for the exhibitions sector to bounce back quickly to enable trade. As an intrinsic part of the exhibitions industry and as pioneers in the space, Informa Markets in India takes this enhanced responsibility of boosting the bounce back efforts extremely seriously. The result of our efforts is our initiative, coinciding at a time when the nation awaits the festive season to bond, hope and celebrate. We look forward to an enthusiastic industry participation!” he added.

With India’s gross domestic product growing by 20.1 per cent in the April to June quarter, the industry trajectory is beginning to reveal an upswing, despite the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.  In this context, trade exhibitions cater to a stream of sectors to offer customised solutions, in a Covid-dented economy.
