14th July, 2011, was indeed a remarkable evening, a first of its kind, as it marked the launch of WADHWA GROUP in UK, in association with Unesta India Property Services.
With India in grief by the tragic event of bomb blasts in Mumbai, the evening began with a minute silence as the guests prayed for the families of the victims. Exhibiting the true resilience and spirit, Mumbai has again lived up to its name and had taught us that, the show must go on.
The event commenced with a brief speech by the MD of The Wadhwa Group, Mr. Navin Makhija who spoke about the vision of the company and its strategic move to set up office in the UK in association with Unesta.
The guests then got a wonderful insight into one the biggest Development Houses in India by Mr. Ashish Shah from Wadhwa Group who not only gave the audience a summary of the Group and its projects, but also enabled them to comprehend a Construction Project Development Cycle, so that they can gain the most out of their investment.
The presentation by Wadhwa group was followed by a brief presentation by Mr. Vikram Goyal,the mastermind of UNESTA. Vikram’s presentation gave the audience a glimpse of the future and enabled them to realise the potential of India Real Estate.
The other highlights of the evening were the talks delivered by renowned personalities in the India Real Estate industry including Mr. Sanjay Dutt – CEO of Business at Jones Lang Lasalle India, Mr. Amarjeet Singh – Senior Partner, KPMG India and internationally renowned Architect Mr. Ken Yeang.

Mr. Sanjay Dutt from JLL India gave the audience a bird’s eye view of the macro economic factors governing the Indian markets followed by Mr. Amarjeet Singh, Senior Partner, KPMG India who gave a sneak peek into the complicated world of taxation.

This was followed by drinks and canapés and the evening was made eventful with the wonderful venue at the Churchill Hyatt Hotel, London. The event was indeed one of its kinds in India Real Estate, as it saw the crème de la crème of the business in action.
