The Apex Awards, this year, have been Planned on the first day of the 66th NGF. Plan­ning and bring­ing to­gether the Na­tional Gar­ment Fair and the Apex Awards was a con­scious de­ci­sion that CMAI had taken this year to raise the moral and re-en­er­gise the Sec­tor by bring­ing to­gether the en­tire In­dus­try at one place for the Power packed Evening. Re­wards are al­ways a nice way to mo­ti­vate and CMAI, by un­der­stand­ing that, chose NGF as the plat­form for the Apex Awards too.

The In­dus­try is al­ready Count­ing days to the Awards and they are gear­ing up to Wit­ness an evening filled with Cel­e­bra­tions Of Ex­cel­lence, mo­ti­vat­ing Dis­cus­sions and en­cour­ag­ing claps!
