MUMBAI : Infrastructure Innovation Summit 2018 is all set to lay the platform for the biggest Infrastructure Innovation forum on 23rd and 24th May 2018 in Mumbai. Jointly supported by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (Govt. of India) and the Ministry of New and Renewable energy (Govt. of India), the forum is ready to witness some of the biggest names in the industry.
IIS 2018 brings about immense opportunities for networking. With an equal opportunity for all participants to be part of discussions; participation of Architects, international and domestic Consultants, Urban planners, Developers, Ministry delegates, Tech CXO’s, regulatory authorities to name a few, the forum will enable a huge networking opportunity, with the topics discussed being closely related to the future of infra metamorphosis.
The infrastructure sector is one of the key drivers of the Indian economy, which may also be the reason for the vested interest of the Govt., as well as a keen eye of foreign and domestic investment. However, there is a huge gap between the expectation and reality. A recent study shows that the required capital funding for meeting the urban population demands over the next two decades will be approximately US$1.2 Trillion. About 200 million people will move from rural to urban areas in India in the next 15 years. To have a sustainable development, the tentative investment required in infra is estimated at US$ 778 Billion, by 2022. Apart from sustenance, being at the forefront of innovation and designs, India has also seen a rise in path-breaking projects. This spirit can be seen in projects like World One and Yamuna Expressway. Understanding the future scope and decoding the current scene of Indian Infra has become the major challenge.
The IIS 2018 forum will give 300+ professionals from various domains, a chance to network and understand current trends and innovations from industry stalwarts who have opulent experience in the infrastructure domain.
According to the latest statistics, the Govt. of India has taken up many promising projects, like the Rs. 191,155 crore (US$ 30.02 billion) investment in Smart City planning, or the investment of Rs. 4,200 crore (US$ 648.75 billion) in Green Energy Corridor Project. The active participation of the Govt. and their infra-centric policies are a great news for the industry. The Budget of 2018-19 saw the allocation of Rs. 5.97 lakh crore (US$ 92.22 billion) for infra sector, with a separate allocation of Rs. 1.48 trillion (US$ 22.86 billion) for the Railways. These decisions of the Govt. shed light on the importance, as well as the magnitude of the infra scene in India.
“We are really glad to be at the forefront of this infra revolution.” quoted Mr. Raj Hesi (IIS 2018 Management), “The motive behind the forum is to create a positive impact in the fraternity and be a catalyst for sharing of ideas. With the merging of thoughts from the top brass to the executive, tomorrow’s leaders will have guidance through these interactions” Mr. Hesi added.
The summit is also open for enterprises to showcase their prowess. With a grand stage set for targeting the right audience, companies have an immense scope of getting their message across. Sponsorship opportunities for the event are aplenty and companies can immensely profit by getting noticed by the right clientele. IIS2018 organizers have informed that both, individual registrations as well as delegate registrations are now open for the audience.
To stay updated regarding the infrastructure innovations happening around the world and the Infrastructure Innovation Summit 2018, one can follow #IIS2018 on social media. The forum remains to be seen as one of the most interactive and grand forums, for the infrastructure fraternity. With the arrival of infra evolution and its dynamic acceptance, the future of Infra innovation seems exciting. And IIS 2018 promisingly seems the window to this world.
