India Today Conclave 2018 is back; World leaders to mull over globally relevant theme - 'The Great Churn- Triumphs and Tribulations'.

The India Today Conclave, in its seventeenth edition, is all set to return to Mumbai on the 9th and 10th March 2018, with compelling ideas, powerhouse performances, thoughtful debates and brilliant short films. As the Conclave gets bigger, contemporary thought leaders from across the world would congregate at one forum to share trailblazing ideas on shaping the global future. One of the distinguished leaders to join this initiative is Former US Secretary of State - Hillary Rodham Clinton. This is the second time that she will be part of the India Today Conclave.

The Conclave will provide an open platform to the leading think tanks to mull over the theme this year - ‘The Great Churn - Triumphs and Tribulations’. With the world facing unconventional yet highly significant social, economic and political changes, the past is no longer a guide to the future. This means that thinking the unthinkable should become the norm.

The theme encompasses all the formidable challenges faced by the global citizens today: be it emerging new leaders, simmering social tensions, massive climatic concerns, growing fears of terror, political, social and economic upheavals or the ambiguities associated with it. Nothing is as it was, whether it is the world, the nation state, society, or community.

However, even in times of duress, some of the global titans have still succeeded in creating opportunities and moving ahead with the tough times, giving the world HOPE. This year the theme for India Today Conclave, 'The Great Churn: Triumphs and Tribulations', has been thoughtfully envisioned to prepare for the future.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Kalli Purie, Vice Chairperson, India Today Group said, “We are very excited to welcome Former Secretary of State Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton to the India Today Conclave for a second time. When she visited us last she was a senator and at the cusp of her first presidential bid. She has travelled a long way since. Now a global icon for feminism and hope, we are so looking forward to welcoming her back in our midst.”

India Today Conclave is a unique platform where the sharpest minds from across the globe converge at a forum to discuss and debate issues from around the world. This will be the second year that the India Today Group's signature event will be held in Mumbai in March 2018. 'The Great Churn', the theme of the India Today Conclave this year, features a path to find your way as the world tilts on its axis.
