Commenting on the IAA Debates and the upcoming event in Delhi (NCR), Srinivasan K. Swamy, President, IAA India Chapter said, “The first two debates – in Mumbai and Goa – have been extremely well received. I expect the third IAA Debates to do as well. The topic chosen is provocative and is something in the minds of many after the recent Goafest-Abbys event. With the line up of speakers the Debate in Delhi promises to be exciting, delivering viewpoints to help our perspectives evolve.”


Partho Dasgupta, Co Chairperson, IAA Debates said, “This is the good old classic format of debate where industry leaders debate serious issues. It’s not a standard comfortable panel discussion sitting on a couch. We get to hear the best opinion backed by information on subjects with speakers defending their positions passionately.”
