A promotion by our event Sponsors, a limited number of complimentary free passes are currently available for Day 1, for 1 delegate each from select Corporates, Govt. Departments and Ministries. These could be availed by Board Members, CXO level officials and Program Sponsors. Since vendors, suppliers and consultants are unlikely to be potential customers, most probably they would not be eligible to get any free passes, and would need to pay the applicable fee. Offer open while stocks last.

For have a chance to get a free pass from our wonderful event sponsors, please email us. For those who may want more than one free pass, we suggest that you take advantage of our volume offers by attending as a team. Discounts are also available for past recent participants.
