We had over 50 participating brands across 10 industry sectors including white goods, holidays, healthcare, entertainment, gifting, edutainment and sports. Discovery Kids had launched their Transformers brand successfully at the expo. We had participation from Crompton Greaves and Bajaj Electricals which are industrial giants in their area.

Here Kids decorated Lord Ganesha’s idols for Diwali pooja. Kids showed their imaginative side while making Beautiful Greeting cards to gift their loved ones for Diwali festival.
