Overview

The ‘India GRI’ started after the Luncheon with a Keynote Panel, hosted by GRI Club Chairman Henri Alster, with Gary Garrabrant, Khushru Jijina, Avinash Sule, Yash Gupta and Sanjay Chhabria. Henri opened the event by posing the question “Is India the new America?”, which was unpacked initially by emerging markets investor Gary Garrabrant, who pointed to similarities between India’s current aspirational outlook and that of the ‘old’ United States..

The Networking Dinner took place at Sanjay Chhabria’s wonderful ONE BKC building, with GRI constituents enjoying some fine hospitality, with a pleasant breeze and night time view over BKC.

The following day saw Dr Niranjan Hiranandani deliver an inspiring address about the opportunity he sees in affordable housing, using the comparison to the emergence and subsequent success of the low cost airline industry.

Discussion Groups over the course of the event covered a multitude of real estate sectors and regions, both established and emerging, with particularly fruitful discussions on hospitality, logistics and South India. Many attendees commented that this was the best GRI meeting in many, many years.
