PUNE UNPLUGGED - 3
07 -16 October 2011
Mahratta Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture has been promoting Pune region’s trade, Investment and institutional links with the rest of the world. Over the years we have attracted and promoted ties with Multinational companies in our region.
We would like to intensify our engagement with the Expatriate community in Pune with a series of initiatives aimed at promoting a much greater degree of assimilation and integration among people across nationalities. We would also like to introduce various facets of Indian culture to the ever growing expatriate community in Pune.
As a major step in this direction, the Chamber had organised PUNE UNPLUGGED in 2009 and 2010. Going by the response from the expatriate community, we have decided to make it an annual feature. Pune Unplugged 3.0 will be organized during 7-16 October 2011. To enable maximum number of entrepreneurs and working professionals to attend the events, we have decided to organise the evening events on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
