Giving Back - NGO India initiated a series of social media campaigns which engaged dignitaries, speakers, exhibitors, and visitors across popular social media platforms to generate a buzz for NGO India 2013. It created huge impact for the event not only in India but also all over the world, which made Giving Back - NGO India stands out from the competitors.

NGOs can exhibit at the event for free.
