India is a dynamic territory where population is the key i.e. 1.3 billion is a huge opportunity for any brand to do business.

It's absolutely dynamic, exciting, fast developing and GDP growth percentage is something that we in UK are jealous. India is clearly a big opportunity for any company and the key is how do you crack it as there is a lot of cultural and social variation. We are trying the same and that's why we are here supporting ILE 2017

We are super excited about it, the show has been eye opening.
