WEF-Gurugram, 2019 Program Details

Session Guidelines:
*Plenary Sessions: Each Plenary session has around 7-8 speakers who individually deliver their acceptance remarks and inspiring life message for about 4-5 minutes in the order of speaking as mentioned in the program.
*Awards will be conferred to awardees at the end of the session.
* Parallel Sessions: Each session of 60 Minutes will have maximum of 4 co-lead speakers on a panel, who will speak for 10 minutes each.
* Vibe and Flow: We encourage speaking and sharing from the heart in storytelling format (instead of power points). Overall, the vibe of the conference is interactive with open hearted sharing favoring connection and community spirit.
*Timings: Timings of the sessions are subject to change. Sessions may be merged or de-merged depending on schedule flow. While we do our best to adjust and accommodate, the decision of the organizers is final.
* Language: WEF conferences worldwide are largely in English. However local speakers may present in their respective languages, in which case translation to English is mostly available
* Press Release: A general press release is also available closer to the dates.
*Dress Code: We love to celebrate all cultures in creativity, diversity, and sisterhood. So we welcome you to dress up for comfort and confidence. Do also apprise yourself of local culture and customs.
* All the Videos and Pictures of the conference will be uploaded on the website after the event.
