When some of the best minds in art, sports, business and politics come together on a stage, fierce debates and thought-provoking discussions are the order of the day.
The India Today Conclave, in its 16th edition, expects to trigger a wave of free and fresh thinking as it explores the concept of 'The Great Disruption'.
In a first, the Conclave will be held in Mumbai from March 17-18.
Some of the finest experts will be on stage--thought leaders who analyse our age, politicians who determine our headlines, policy makers who shape our future, and entertainers who sprinkle stardust on our mundane existence.
The list of speakers is as diverse as it gets, from President of India Pranab Mukherjee and former French President Nicolas Sarkozy to Reliance Industries Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani and Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra.
With the spotlight on country's financial capital, it's only fair that those who have mastered the art of doing business speak at the Conclave. Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra, Godrej Group Chairman Adi Godrej and HFDC Chairman Deepak Parekh will speak at the two-day event.
Bollywood's evergreen superstar Amitabh Bachchan and 'Badshah' Shah Rukh Khan along with actors Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin will explore the changing landscape of cinema.
Conclave Director Kalli Purie said, "This edition of the India Today Conclave is a progressive and directional platform that aims to contribute in rebuilding the disrupted social order. We believe that significant conversations are the way to generate solutions and the Conclave promotes just that."
