India Today Group CEO Ashish Bagga told that the cost of the event has been recovered. "Substantial margin is usually enjoyed by such thought leading events. Thus, sponsors are still pouring in."

According to Bagga, the overarching theme is to set India‘s Agenda in India‘s own language - Hindi. "Thought leaders from all spheres will be building on this and so will the subsequent On Air programming. Therefore, to take the channel‘s influence beyond the screen and to create mass movements we have embarked on this direction as the most respected and trusted news channel."

He said this show is expected to be amongst the most powerful shows on TV ever. "It is first of its kind in India‘s own language - Hindi. Therefore expectations on ratings are high but more importantly the influence will be the driver for such initiatives. The opinions and the stature of speakers will define a new high when it comes to thought leadership. Revenues are anyway very positive on platforms that are opinion leading and present extraordinary positive rub off."
