Talking about Stream, Ranjan Kapur, WPP Country Manager, India says, “Stream is an unusual annual event that has the marketing community thinking about the changes affecting the way we will be interacting and communicating in the future. There is a strong focus on digital. Participants from diverse fields of marketing, communication, film, theatre and the arts come together and share thoughts on what the future holds. We refer to it as the ‘un conference’ that encourages out of the box thinking.”
With no pre-set agenda, the schedule is up to the attendees to set. Each day there are discussions across myriad of topics that attendees can choose to participate in basis their interests and passion. From Ignite Talk for fast talkers to The Gadgethon & The Tech Lab for geeks, Stream Cinema for cinema lovers, Cooking Madness for those who believe cooking is therapeutic, The Pitch for the socially conscious, Extravaganza for the musical and gregarious souls, Health & Wellness for those young at heart, The Workshop for the craftsmen of the group, and the very entertaining Stream Band for the musicians and karaoke singers. Stream promises to be an event that will leave its attendees amazed, inspired, and armed with new thinking, new ideas and new friends.
“This is the coolest thinkfest where people from diverse fields come under one roof to discuss the future of digital and what it means for communications, creativity and business. A great platform which pushes people to think unconventional and out of box concepts and ideas,” says Tushar Vyas, Chief Strategy Officer, GroupM, South Asia.
