With diverse themes and topics united by a thread of relevance in four days, Xplore strives for one and all to get inspired and look up to. It aims at developing sustainable solutions to alleviate the society of its banal yet significant problems with technology conclaves, fruitful discussions, fierce competitions and informative lectures.
Xplore’19 bears the agenda “The Conflation of Sustainable and Pioneering Technology to beget an Empowered Society”. We seek to bring the leaders of today and tomorrow on a common platform to deliberate upon ideas and issues that exist both within and beyond the realm of technology. A broad spectrum of themes has been included this year to apprise visionaries about the potential challenges that confront them and to pursue the dream of realizing a creative, inventive and sustainable society.
