Last week, we announced that Nandan Nilekani, Chairman of the UIDAI will be speaking at The #NAMA Conference, MediaNama’s first and flagship conference. Now, we’re not announcing speakers yet and we won’t be announcing all our speakers either (there’s one ‘secret set’ we’re including, just for fun, and to keep you guessing), but we are releasing early bird tickets for The #NAMA Conference.

You can book early bird tickets, priced at Rs 3999 at http://nama.doattend.com/ , available till the 20th of September. (the full ticket price is going to be Rs 5999, so there’s a Rs 2000 discount applicable right now).

#NAMA will be held at The Westin, Gurgaon on Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 (0900hrs to 1800 hrs).

(p.s.: if you’re interested in sponsoring, do contact me at nikhil@medianama.com. We’re in active discussions as of now, and will close sponsorships by September 18th, max)

About #NAMA

A transformation is taking place in both the Internet and Mobile services businesses. Along with uncertainty, there is significant opportunity.#NAMA seeks to shed light on challenges and uncertainties, what market leaders are doing about it, and point towards opportunities through deep, insightful and meaningful discussions and sharing of experiences.

Our focus is on providing the audience with valuable insight on the decisions that are being made, why they’re being made, what developments are influencing them, and how they will impact the growth of the digital industry going forward. We will provide #NAMA attendees with significant and varied learning about the digital ecosystem, and give them a reason to stay in the conference hall, not just chat in the hallway.
