The event was great. Met a lot of people from the industry. Made some really good contacts. I wish I could have networked more or there was a networking platform. The food was very limited. Apart from that it was really good! Also a special thanks as I was told I would not be allowed to attend the conference but on spot I was allowed. Being an MBA in Sports Management from blore the travel was worth! Thank You!

Its not clear wether it is a B2B or B2C or both, and lots to yet create from that point of view. . For me it was just coming and seeing whats happening in the field and was hoping more b2b interactions. it could have an app where people could book themselves meetings before hand based on knowing which participant is coming.

I came for mixed martial arts but it was no to the expectations and upto international standards. The acceasories and equipments available were just basics and nothing was new. Next time i hope that it gets better

It was a great experince to attend conference. Open panel discussions were worth attending. Sharing of knowledge from eminent speakers is the best part.
