History is being created! The first conference being organized by LMAI, Label Manufacturers Association of India, is to be held at Hotel Park Hyatt, Goa in three days time from July 29th to 31st, 2011. The president of the association Vivek Kapoor and his team appear to be a stressed lot in effort to deliver their best, yet in their hearts they are ecstatic! They have worked hard to deliver a great networking event. The response is overwhelming. The industry looks forward to network and gel with colleagues.

When the project was conceptualised, not many believed that they would succeed. Success will eventually be viewed after the conference has been held. I will try and post the complete report with pictures by the end of next week.

It is an event that promises to be comparable to the best in the world. Being the nascent attempt by a young association and having reached such levels of success lapses if any need to be overlooked.I personally believe that given the level of commitment the event will leave the world label fraternity in awe.

The target to achieve appeared optimistic, 100 rooms and  maybe 150 delegates and Lo! the result is incredible!!! Rooms ? Not available and God knows how many more are needed… Delegates? The venue can accommodate 180 and it is over 240 confirmed delegates! It is really amazing, there is a a long waiting list. As for the speakers at the conference, it is the virtual who is who of the leading providers to the international label industry. More on that in my post conference report.

Kudos to Vivek and his team! Cheers Goa, here we come!
