It has been four years since the new Companies Act was enacted and CSR became a compliance in India. These four years have seen a lot of change, moreover development, in the CSR ecosystem in India.
We, at NGOBOX, have been bringing out annual India CSR Outlook Report and State-wise report series on how CSR projects are distributed in various thematic areas and geographies. We have been hosting Índia CSR Summit & Exhibition' for past four years, along with regional events like Rajasthan CSR Summit 2018 and Deccan CSR Summit 2018, bringing CSR heads/managers, NGO leaders, government agencies, policy-makers, advisory firms and social businesses together to discuss challenges, learn from failures and scale up successful interventions.
The recent event in September 2017 in Gurgaon was a landmark forum in this context, where we brought together 1365 organizations and 2100+ delegates. Having partners like Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, Goodera, NSDC, United Way of Mumbai, CAF India, Chemionics, Coca-Cola India, IL&FS, Apollo MedSkills, WaterAid, JSL Lifestyle etc helped us a lot to make the event a great success.
We are excited to announce Índia CSR Summit & Exhibition 2018' on 24th-25th September in New Delhi. The 38,000 sq. ft. carpet area and 8000 sq ft. open networking area at J W Marriott, Aerocity, makes it the largest CSR event ever held in India. We expect the event to host 1800 organizations, 3100 delegates and 500+ CSR heads/managers. For more information, please visit http://indiacsrsummit.in/
