Venkat Raman –
The best Award that a journalist can get is a word of appreciation. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than a smile that indicates satisfaction.
On that score, we are beholden to more than 200 guests who chose to write to us expressing their delight at the way in which the Eighth Annual BNZ-Indian Newslink Indian Business Awards turned out to be on Monday, November 23, 2015 at Sky City Convention Centre.
We have chosen just a few to provide a broad representation of the dignitaries, businesses, manufacturers and professionals who attended the event. We have of course removed some accolades that made us shy!

Each year the Indian Newslink Indian Business Awards get bigger and bigger with increasing number of guests and participants. This event alone will require a better and bigger Convention Centre.
