becoming increasingly comfortablewith online buying. The speakers talked about how this format empowered the buyers
to not only buy at a lower cost point but to also voice their review for products and services on social media thereby
ensuring instant feedback and influencing buying patterns. However, Indiahad to be evaluated as a collective combination
of smaller regions rather than a whole country so that local culture and economics could be factored in for targeted and
relevant products & services.
