More than 300 international guests and 3000 national guests are expected to participate as delegates at the event. Given the significance of the conference, Govt. of Madhya Pradesh has requested BSNL for providing uninterrupted high speed internet facility through Wi-Fi at the conference venue from 1st May to 20th May, 2016.
