Urbanization plays as one of the pivotal determining factor of economic development as Indian economy moves from being primarily agrarian to industrial and service sectors. As the industrialization grows, it affects the movement of population from the rural areas to the urban settlements in the wake of more lucrative employment opportunities.
It is anticipated that the urban population of world will grow double by 2050 with 90% of this growth taking place in developing countries and India, being significantly populated. It is also being surmised that the Indian section of urban population will contribute 70% of the country’s GDP in next 15 years vis-à-vis the current percentage of 60%.
Evidently, the urban infrastructure as on date is inadequate to meet the demands of the existing urban population and with the increased number of population migrating to urban settlements, an ardent need for re-generation of urban areas in existing cities and the creation of smart cities is there to satiate the northward demands. Future cities of India should be on the lines of smart real estate and urban infrastructure to match the global cities in terms of habitat, environment and services.
Essentially, the pillars of any city including Institutional Infrastructure, Governance, Physical and Social Infrastructure cater to the basic requirements of the denizens. In other words, a Smart City works towards ensuring the best for all its people, regardless of social status, age, income levels, gender, etc.
Information Exchange Group endeavours to bring forth the piping hot topic of futuristic smart cities in office in order to put across the challenges, opportunities, enablers and deterrents of the industry segment to discuss, debate and deliberate upon these and find out viable solutions for the stakeholders of a Smart City and its allied industry’s value chain.


The world's leading experts from the industry are coming to Smart City Landscape 2015 to inspire you and share their insights.

Mystery, magic, mayhem. Welcome to Delhi, City of Djinns, and 25 million people. Like an eastern Rome, India’s capital is littered with the relics of lost empires. A succession of armies stormed across the Indo-Gangetic plain and imprinted their identity onto the vanquished city, before vanishing into rubble and ruin like the conquerors who preceded them. Modern Delhi is a chaotic tapestry of medieval fortifications, Mughal mausoleums, dusty bazaars, colonial-era town planning, and mega malls.


Travellers sometimes leave Delhi underwhelmed, after ticking off the sights and tussling with the touts. But give the city a chance and you might fall in love. It’s often the lesser-known corners that are most rewarding, such as Lodi Gardens at dusk, the qawwali (Islamic devotional singing) at Nizamuddin or the great fort of Purana Qila. A recommended way to glimpse beneath the surface is to take one of the city’s tours, from a former street child’s view of Old Delhi to a cycle tour along the Yamuna.


Navigating Delhi’s seven cities (or 12, if you include British-built New Delhi and the satellite cities of Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Gurgaon) is made infinitely easier by its gleaming, cheap and efficient metro.


Venue Brief: The Imperial is an iconic property in Delhi's 5 star hotel category and the most distinguished address situated in the heart of the capital, reminiscent of the halcyon days of the Raj. A luxury hotel with an iconic and awe-inspiring heritage interwoven in colonial elegance, it dwells in its modern delivery of old-style class, magnificence and luxuries aplenty. Inaugurated by Lord Willingdon in 1936, it is New Delhi’s landmark Hotel, located on Janpath, the erstwhile Queensway. The Hotel is steps away from the renowned shopping district and city’s major attractions and just 30-minutes’ drive from the international airport.


Address: The Imperial
Janpath Lane, Connaught Place, 
New Delhi, 110001 ‎
