UBM to launch new event promoting CSR in India, NGO India 2012 poised to drive businesses with social values
MUMBAI: UBM India will launch NGO India 2012 at Epicenter, Gurgaon during 16 – 18 March 2012. The exhibition and conference aims at fostering alliances and networking between the country’s CSR and NGO communities. As more and more corporates realise the brand value and employee engagement benefits gained by developing a planned CSR strategy, the event will help CEOs, Marketing Heads and other CSR specialists to identify opportunities and share best practices in this area. INDIA CSR (www.indiacsr.in), the largest CSR network in India, is the media partner of the event.
The event is supported by prominent institutions such as: Guidestar India, Oxfam, IBM, The National Trust , FICCI , INDIA CSR (www.indiacsr.in), etc and will host stalls from close to 150 NGOs and foundations. They will have the opportunity to profile the work they do in front of an audience of India’s corporate houses. There will also be performances and the opportunity to purchase handicrafts made by NGO communities. Free to attend workshops for NGOs on best practices in governance and other crucial back office skills will be hosted.
In addition, a high level paid-for conference aimed at corporate CEOs, NGOs and government will run concurrently at the same venue on the first two days of the event. Topics will throw insights on The Role of NGOs in Delivering Inclusive and Sustainable Development; Opportunities and Challenges in Executing Social Initiatives and touch other issues involving governance and wider community engagement.
The exhibition follows similar initiatives launched by UBM in other regions. “We have seen tremendous benefits to the NGOs that have participated in our events in London and Brazil and we hope to replicate this success in India. It has been an excellent platform for NGOs to highlight their work and for CSR professionals to identify and network with NGOs operating in a large number of fields and geographies” said Sanjeev Khaira, Managing Director of UBM India. Entry to the exhibition is free to all and the event is open to the general public on the last day, 18 March.
