In the quest to grow this industry to its potential, IWS 2016 will emphasis more on new buyers and new sectors.

After all discussions on how to improvise existing business and grow it further, there is hardly any discussion on the potential start-ups in this sector. For the first time ever, this very common topic but the least discussed one would be part of the program of this conference. A renowned industry consultant would address the audience on the launch plan for this sector, challenges, opportunities for start-ups and how to set up a successful business model.
