Press Release Summary: The world's largest and most respected series of business
leadership events is now in India. Leaders in India: Business Forum 2008 will take
place in Mumbai, between 4th-6th December.

Press Release Body: Mumbai, March 08: Informa, the owners of information
super-brands including Lloyd's List, Taylor & Francis and Datamonitor, have
announced the first Indian edition of the world's largest series of Leadership
events. Leaders business fora command audiences of 1000s of top corporate
executives every year, with speakers most recently including Kofi Annan, C. K.
Prahalad, Philip Kotler, Stephen Covey, Richard Branson and Steve Forbes.

According to Peter Rigby, Chairman of Informa plc. 'Leaders in India is a fantastic
opportunity for participants to meet and mingle with their professional counterparts
from both India and abroad. Similar fora in Dubai and London have become 'must
attend' events over the past few years - attendees have found them extremely
worthwhile, interesting and stimulating, and we anticipate that Leaders in India
will be exactly the same'.

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-focused points of discussion in its series of
interactive audience Q&As with key business leaders.

'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 of 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.'

'But more than just that, 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 most coveted new awards for the country's business leadership, as well
as a unique, televised evening debate conducted in the English Speaking Union's
parliamentary style of debating.
