Why You Should Attend

Rural Marketing & Services Excellence Forum

Rural markets in India are changing at a rapid pace and consumers are changing along with them. Today, rural India is a place of aspiration, new wealth and exciting business opportunities. Holding 78% of the country's population, in a country with 14 million retail outlets, Rural India is unquestionably the sleeping giant of e-Commerce and retail.

The FMCG sector in India is expected to hit $104B in year 2020, while the February 2018 budget allotted $217B for rural infrastructure and development. Meanwhile the government is laying thousands of miles of roads into rural areas, constructing millions of houses and even providing free WiFi to a thousand or more villages. This is the perfect chance to craft your game plan and corner the market in no time.

The days of a connected and engaged rural India are coming and with them a consumer who is more brand-educated and responsive than ever, yielding unprecedented opportunities in the rural market for new paradigms in customer acquisition and purchasing loyalty.
