MUMBAI: If you thought business meetings can only be done in conference rooms and around round tables, it’s time to think again! To make work more than just work, Sir Martin Sorrel founded WPP’s best strategic planners are gathering in Jaipur to think about the digital future and what that means for communications, what it means for creativity and what it means for business.

The focus of Stream India will be to celebrate and explore the growth and development of digital innovation in India. It will also bring Brands together with regional leaders from media and technology companies for a debate on India’s digital future.
With over one hundred discussion sessions, Ignite talks (15 slides in 15 seconds), pitch show, tech lab, etc Stream India is going to be really prolific.
