May 2018


Mumbai, India

Go Global Expo & Conference

Go Global is a one of its kind mega Expo and Conference for Indian companies who wish to expand their business internationally. The event will be staged in Mumbai in May 2018. It is being organised by London based Global Trade & Investment Events Limited, in association with India Global Business magazine and India’s apex business body, the Confederation of Indian Industry.

Go Global will provide a platform for trade promotion agencies, businesses, and advisors from around the world seeking to attract increasingly sought after Indian trade & investment, technology and talent.

With a plus 7% growth rate, India is the fastest growing large economy in the world.

Outbound investments from India are also growing significantly in magnitude, geographical spread and sectorial composition. There were cross-border deals involving Indian companies in 2015 worth US$ 43 billion, US$ 38 billion in 2014, and US$ 28 billion in 2013.

India is now the third largest source of FDI in the UK and is the biggest employer in the UK’s manufacturing sector.

Indian companies are more outward looking than ever before. They seek newer and more extensive markets, better technologies, a more global talent pool, and opportunities and partners that will enable them to continue to achieve high rates of growth.

Go Global is therefore the ideal place to tap into the world’s biggest growth opportunity.
