In other presentations and panels, representatives of medium-sized and large companies shared their “recipes for success” in the Indian market and described preparations and pitfalls when starting a business in India. They explained how to set up a local sales team, how to find the right staff, and how to establish an effective subsidiary in India – all in a practical and cross-industry manner. Like every year, the speakers were very open and honest about their experiences and not afraid to share things that did not work out when they entered the Indian market. Even football fans did not miss out as Borussia Dortmund gave exclusive insights on how the football club is currently winning fans in India.
Networking is also an important part of India Day. The participants had opportunities to talk to each other in the air-conditioned Flora, while temperatures outside were almost Indian. Discussions at the coffee and lunch tables were enthusiastic, and even business people who travel regularly to India gained new insights.
Following the 10th India Day participants acknowledged that, when it comes to India, you never stop learning.
A very successful anniversary!
