Informa Markets India launches Namaste – Leaders’ Playbook and initiates vaccination drive

Informa Markets in India marked Global Exhibitions Day (GED) 2021 on 2 June, launching its Namaste-Leaders’ Playbook, an e-newsletter for the Indian market offering deep dives into industry trends, forecasts and insights.

Informa Markets also announced a vaccination drive for its employees and their families. The company says the initiative will help keep team members safe, stop the spread of the virus, and prepare for the face-to-face edition of trade expos. 

Earlier this year, Informa Markets created the unique AllSecure safety standard, a major contribution to ensuring a secure experience for exhibitors and visitors. It also introduced the Travel Safety Guide, a document covering the safety of employees and designed to help employers meet their care obligations for staff travelling on business.

During the pandemic Informa Markets in India has also been upskilling and training its staff and organising webinars on motivation and wellness.

Mr Yogesh Mudras (pictured), managing director Informa Markets in India, said: “Observing Global Exhibitions Day 2021, even as India continues to battle the pandemic, was a re-affirmation of the power of exhibitions to revive the economy. While our hearts go out to everyone affected, it is heartening to witness our industry’s never-say-die spirit. Exhibitions continue to serve businesses by diversifying services, while awaiting the eventual resumption of the face-to-face format. Our matrix of over 130 solution-centred digital and live deliveries has lessened the blow on sectoral businesses and livelihoods, curated insights and roadmaps while re-purposing young talent.”

“Going forward, we will offer turnkey hybrid engagements, physical and virtual platforms for an engaging and immersive experience for our customers,” Mudras added.

Informa Markets in India (formerly UBM India) hosts over 25 large-scale exhibitions and 40 conferences a year. The company has offices across Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai.
