Over the years, the Yi Summits have become the flagship events of the Organization providing an opportunity for members to converge on a common platform to discuss and debate on issues of importance to the development of the country. With themes that are relevant to the changing role of youth, these summits have collectively brought together around 5000 delegates and 300 speakers from various fields. These summits have moved around the country, with New Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru and Bhubaneswar being the host in 2015. You can be rest assured that TakePRIDE 2016 shall be an engagement of Global Scale and Quality recognizing & celebrating the power of India’s Youth and will be an ‘EXPERIENCE’ like none other !

The 2016 summit scheduled for 25-26 March 2016 at the Taj Palace, Delhi is conceived to be the biggest of all our summits in Yi so far. With ‘TakePRIDE’ being the theme of this summit, it is about recognizing and celebrating the power of youth. This groundbreaking event will bring together statesmen, political and business leaders, thinkers and writers, stars and savants, heroes and youth icons – a microcosm of the kind of exceptional minds that will enrich the multitude of Young Indians. This is where speakers and thought leaders will challenge the dead certainties of the day and where exceptional minds shall map a better tomorrow.

A very large contingent of members from Yi are working round the clock behind the screen to put up an event of high impact, huge magnitude and wonderful learnings. With Delhi becoming the host for the 3 Yi national summits, the forthcoming one will be different and unique with the inclusion of a debate, un-conference and inspiring sessions with unsung heroes apart from an overall ambiance that you will experience only by being there in person. March is a busy period in India and especially in Delhi and the capital city will just get more busy! Please see the retrospect section of this website and look at how we have evolved in the past, you can broadly visualize how this one will be, but you can be rest assured that it will be certainly much better that what you think!!

See you at Delhi and do always ‘takepride’ in being a Young Indian – because there has been no better time to be young and in India! If you think so, please register yourself at this summit for an experience of a lifetime.

An integral part of our experience at the summit will be an experience zone “What Young India Wants” which will present brands with an opportunity to showcase and let this diverse and affluent group of young consumers experience their products. Whilst the layout of the experience zone will be similar to that of an exposition, the treatment will be far from it. It will be about an experience for the delegate and the participating brand. We intend to open this opportunity to select brands and shall be reserving 1 space each per product category. So for example there will be only 1 high end television brand, 1 exclusive car or two wheeler and so on. We expect that the participating brand shall utilize this exclusive opportunity to not just display their latest and/or upcoming products/services but also provide an engaging experience to this coveted target consumer base.

Please reach out to dheeraj.datta@cii.in or +91 9914444326 to block your space.
