When: 20th October 2008, 6:30 PM to 9 PM

What: Rural Opportunities in Mobile

Rural consumers in South and South-East Asia have tremendous potential for telecom adoption but very few know how to either identify these consumers or reach out to them. Remoteness and low spending capacities are cited by prominent organizations as reasons for not conceptualizing dedicated rural marketing strategies. The situation is changing with growing rural prosperity and the need for technology to resolve challenges of remoteness through information access.

The question then arises is how should telecom and other industries now orient themselves to these untapped rural markets? Are the strategies to be explored here the same as for urban markets? How well do urban marketing strategies function with rural consumers? What can telecom companies do in order to facilitate telecom uptake among urban low income and rural users? Answers to these questions and more and identifying key recommendation areas on ways in which telecom players stands to strengthen their positions and lead global rural marketing efforts.

Speaker: Saswati Saha-Mitra Knowledge Manager, CKS Consulting.

Demo: Mobee by Dasarath.

Cost: Free

Where: Craig Barret Auditorium, Sasken Technologies, Domlur (Outer Ring Road office).

IIMB Vista Official Site Oct 10th – 12th

This three day business fest is the core initiative of the FII, and is organized in conjunction with other student clubs. Typically set in the month of October, Vista unfailingly attracts thousands of footfalls and hits in its real and virtual venues respectively every year. As the events unravel one after the other, the entire campus would descend into extreme levels of frenzied activity, with the brightest of minds clashing with the best of brains. What makes Vista a wholesome experience is that young managers as well as established veterans from the industry catalyse the generation of intellectual capital with their presence.

The scores of events lined up for the colossal fest have their bases in a multitude of focus areas like Marketing, Finance, Operations, Economics & Social Sciences, Strategy and IT. There’s something in Vista for anyone and everyone even remotely related to the field of management and business.

The spectrum of business is unendingly wide. This being the case, it is imperative that discussions are made to evolve and revolve around a central axis. This would ensure unity and utility of thoughts, and lend purpose to the exercises. We ensure this in each edition of Vista by setting our events to a specific contemporary theme. If it is “India Inc.” one year, it is “Business Beyond Boundaries” the next.

The meteoric rise of the emerging economies to the spotlight in the past decade, followed by the near-sudden decline of global economic health have together placed the world of business in a very interesting situation; a situation that defies conventional wisdom and marks the surge of new realities; a situation that demands that we all pause and take stock of the situation. And that, is precisely what Vista 2008 is all set to do in October, with the theme “Emerging Economies. Emerging Realities.”
