ArdorComm Media Group, a growing media organisation in India, invites you to join the “NEW NORMAL- EDUCATION LEADERSHIP SUMMIT & AWARDS 2023”, at Kolkata, West Bengal on 23th February 2023.

We have kept ‘Kolkata’, the ‘City of Joy’ as the host city for our flagship event ‘New Normal- Education Leadership Summit & Awards’ #ELSAKolkata #ELSAWestBengal. It is also considered to be the cultural capital of India. It is the primary business, commercial, and financial hub of Eastern India and the main port of communication for North-East India. It has always been the centre of education, not only in West Bengal, but also across the country.

Many cities of Eastern India have played a pioneering role in the development of the modern education system in India. This region has long been a hub of education and culture, a region that enriches many academic institutes of global repute, a land where Nobel laureates have their roots. It is represented by states like West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar, Jharkhand and Sikkim, and also The Seven Sisters of India referring to the north-east states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura. Ample resources, adequate infrastructure, research facilities, meritorious students, and excellent teachers & faculty encourage the necessity of digital investments & collaboration opportunities in this region of India.

This Knowledge forum invites academicians and educators from preschool, school, higher, technical, and skill education, as well as industry experts from edtech and startups, to share their experiences, ideas, and innovations that have facilitated the growth of the education community during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic and is shaping the future of education in this technologically evolving scenario. 

The prestigious ArdorComm Education Leadership Awards 2023 seeks to recognise individuals, educational institutions, EdTech, and startups who have worked diligently and selflessly for the development of the education community.
