Today's economic scenario is based on the 'Grow or Die' phenomenon and is fiercely demanding of every business – big or small to maintain a continuous and steady growth. eCommerce has delivered in every aspect and how! Infact, it is the bestseller around town. It has been improving continually, with innovative ways to make online shopping even more appealing such as better mobile apps, and an increased involvement of a feeling of reality into websites and new options that boost online sales through social media etc.
This year India has crossed the historical threshold of 100 million internet users recording a brisk 24% growth. The strategic and policy announcements by the government and infrastructure providers suggest that with a little effort India will have 300 million internet users by 2015-16 and 600 million internet users by 2020 making it the biggest open internet access market in the world. Therefore, the year 2012 is critical from two aspects:
- The infrastructure should start rolling out.
- A business plan to cater to a 300 million-user market should start.
It is with this background that the 6th edition of IAMAI's annual flagship event The India Digital Summit has been planned.
- The Summit with keynotes and panel discussions with best in class speakers on future of current business models and emerging models of consumer fulfillment.
