Social Business Day is organized every year to discuss and celebrate the groundbreaking idea of social business. The event also creates an opportunity for participants to engage in various interactive panel sessions and workshops to broaden their understanding in their specific areas of interest.

The Forum will exclusively discuss the potential for social business action program of that particular country.

In addition, the event will host several exciting plenary and interactive concurrent breakout sessions.

This will be a theme of one of the plenary sessions.

Like every year, there will be a Social Business Marketplace to showcase the products/services of the most promising social business ventures and new entrepreneurs.
