ET Edge is an initiative of The Economic Times to build global business intelligence through engaging forums that would focus 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.

Our Vision

We envision creating knowledge and networking platforms across multiple industries that would connect, engage, and empower corporates and government to define their strategy & future direction, develop growth opportunities and address problems facing their respective sectors and industries.

Our Objective

ET Edge strives to build global business intelligence through summits, conferences, communities, exhibitions in overarching lectures & presentations, hands-on workshops, panels, roundtables, case studies, buyer seller meets and networking platforms. The forums would ensure senior decision makers are equipped with information and networks to respond to challenges they face not just in India but also globally.
