ET Edge is an initiative of The Economic Times to develop Intellectual properties focussing on key sectors and domains, which would establish themselves as Knowledge and Networking Platforms. ET Edge was launched in 2013 making its foray through domestic conferences. It has now steadily moved into new formats not just covering knowledge sharing platforms such as conferences but also includes exhibitions, community building and more. While ET Edge is well established in the domestic market with expertise in sectors panning Infrastructure, Education, Technology, Retail, BFSI and Telecom amongst other sectors, it is also expanding geographies by building initiatives in South East Asia and is covering new segments including the government segment as well as the B2C segment. ET Edge conferences are primarily B2B platforms which bring together industry heads, vertical experts, academicians, government, visionaries and thought leaders for insightful conversations which aid in drawing the blue print for policy changes and giving directions to these critical sectors. Delegates at the conference are key management personnel and decision makers who further enrich the gatherings with their crucial insights and vast experience. ET Edge builds engagement for its conferences through validated content through third party market research agencies and interactive formats. It deploys cutting edge formats such as fishbowl sessions, speed networking and other diverse formats such as key notes, one to one discussions, workshops, panel discussions, roundtables, case studies and awards. The findings of the conferences are published through white papers in association with knowledge partners to provide rich insights. Some of the marque conference properties by ET Edge include Global Business Summit, Smart Green, Architecture and Design, Infrastructure Focus and Best Brands series having coffee table books.
