Press Release Summary: The countdown to the first Indian chapter of the world's
largest and most respected series of leadership events has begun, with distinguished
leaders and personalities including Kishore Biyani, Steve Forbes and Anil Kumble
addressing a large audience of Indian and international business leaders.

Press Release Body: Mumbai, October '08: Leaders in India is a three day forum
dedicated entirely to the business community, and is expected to be India's largest
single meeting point of global and Indian corporate leaders. In addition to
providing an excellent opportunity for peer-to-peer networking, the 'Leaders' team
prides itself on providing the most thoroughly researched and solution-focussed
points of discussion in its series of interactive audience Q&As with key business

Organised by Informa, the owners of information super-brands including Lloyd's List,
Taylor & Francis and Datamonitor, Leaders in India is supported by media partners
and sponsors including Time Magazine, Radio City 91.1 FM, NewsX, The UK - India
Business Council, the Trump Organisation and Nokia.

Taking place in Mumbai, from 4th - 6th December, at the Oberoi & Trident Hotels,
other speakers at Leaders in India Business Forum 2008 include Donald Trump Jr., Adi
Godrej, Vineet Vohra, Kiran Bedi, Dharti Desai, Shashi Tharoor, Raman Roy, Milind
Deora, Peter Roebuck, Sachin Pilot and Tom Peters.

"Inspiration is the underlying essence of Leaders in India. And that comes from the
precedent and words of some of the greatest business leaders of our generation" says
Abhaey Singh, Managing Director, Informa India. "It is difficult, otherwise, to
stimulate the minds and passions of so many highly intelligent, motivated and
time-poor corporate executives" adds Singh, referring to the audience of CXOs that
typically attend 'Leaders' Business Forums.

"This, coupled with an undiluted focus on useful and meaningful information for
business leaders, as well as arguably the best opportunity for peer-to-peer
networking between the senior leadership of many of India and the world's top firms,
makes the event a must-attend."

On why Informa has decided to bring 'Leaders' to India, Singh adds that "Indians are
ideas people - we love inspiration, and Leaders in India will be three days packed
with the proverbial tingles down your spine. Our country is gradually positioning
itself at the fore of the 21st century knowledge economy. From our legendary IITs &
IIMs, to our booming media and information industry; and from complex analyses
performed for global firms in our KPO centres, to continual advances in indigenous
rocket science - India's inherent knowledge resources are now being more
comprehensively harnessed by and interconnected with Indian and global business. So
we think it's an excellent time to leverage the hugely respected Leaders brand into
this very exciting country."

Featuring many of the biggest names in Indian and global business, the event will
also host The IIBAAs (Indo-International Business Achievement Awards), the most
coveted new awards for the country's business leadership, as well as a unique
evening performance by the Daksha Seth Dance Company - the inspirational new face of
contemporary Indian dance.
