The Festival of Manufacturing - The Platform

India’s manufacturing sector, through the years, has managed to set a tone for innovation and has today become the most sought-after destination for foreign investments in manufacturing. Adding to it, Hon’ Prime Minister Narendra Modi-launched programmes, ‘Make in India’ and ‘Make for India’ have given Indian manufacturing well-deserved global recognition. What lacks today is a dedicated day to celebrate the accomplishments of Indian manufacturing. The Festival of Manufacturing, an initiative by The Times Group, will bring together manufacturing plants across India to recognise, celebrate, and monumentalise India’s manufacturing sector. The event will bring together conglomerates, MSMEs, start-ups, associations, financial, R&D, and educational institutions under one umbrella to celebrate India’s proliferating manufacturing sector.
