India Week 2023 is the place to engage in high level discussions on the New India.
India’s economic growth rate is the highest amongst major economies today, as China struggles with a bloated infrastructure sector, local government bad debts, a zero-Covid policy and an ageing population.
India’s inflation rate is lower than that of the UK, US and other major economies.
As the Western world diversifies its supply chains and geopolitical dependencies away from China, India stands to benefit.
Equally, war, disrupted global supply chains and a hawkish Federal Reserve threaten a prolonged global economic slowdown which could inflict economic pain upon a generation.
As the UK and India reach the closing stages of agreeing a bilateral Free Trade Agreement, EPG’s India Week 2023 is an annual get-together of change-makers, policy and business leaders for high-level discussions on pertinent topics.
If you believe in New India and are excited about the economic opportunity it offers, this is a must-attend event for you.
The inaugural Ideas for India conference in May 2022 was held to celebrate India’s 75th anniversary of Independence, with speakers providing their vision for where they see India in the coming 25 years.
Day 1 featured an education delegation to Birmingham, hosted by Birmingham City University. Day 2 featured a Policy Forum on closer UK-India relations, the Commonwealth Education Conference and an Awards evening in Parliament. Day 3 featured the main plenary sessions, including discussions on India’s leadership in addressing climate change, tackling misinformation, unemployment, skill development, women’s participation in the workforce and building India’s institutions.
This year’s Agenda is even more ambitious, taking place from Sunday 7 May – Friday 12 May 2023.
Imagine a confidential, informal environment where you can discuss new ideas and current challenges with a small group of your peers, as well as celebrity guests and professional golfing stars.
Our CEOs’ retreat is hosted at Rutland Hall, an area of outstanding beauty, popular for cycling, fishing, bird-watching and watersports. And, of course, golf.
Discuss the heart of the UK-India legacy. To keep the discussions intimate, no more than 25 participants allowed to register (plus spouses).
Dates: Sun 7 – Mon 8 May

The second edition of the Ideas for India conference will bring together business, industry and policy leaders from the UK, Europe and India to discuss the next wave of India’s growth as an economy and a nation.
Until recently, business, foreign policy and social issues occupied distinct spaces. The convergence of dialogue, engagement and collaboration between business, government, civil society and Indian diaspora has blurred the lines between each.
Our conference operates at their convergence, helping drive conversations in a unique, inclusive and focused forum.
We expect senior Ministerial attendance from the UK and India, with over 50 guests from India.
Dates: Thurs 11 – Fri 12 May
At the last edition of this event, sessions featured on prime time TV news in India and several stories ranked in the top ten trending stories of the day. In a true celebration of the breadth of India, MPs, Members of Legislative Assembly and other policymakers from seven political parties, across nine states in India attended the event.
Some of the proposed Agenda topics covered:
This event is organised in partnership with WBR Corp, which hosts leading business, investment and brand summits around the world, including in the the UAE and Thailand.
