A high-powered Spanish delegation is expected to attend. So too are representatives from India’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. The event also has a robust B2B content market, which will be at full strength this year after the pandemic years.

One of the highlights of the conference is the release of the keenly anticipated annual FICCI-EY report, a comprehensive examination of the past year and growth projections for the next few years across all the Indian media sectors.

FICCI-Frames takes place March 5-7.
