About The Red Brick Summit

IIM Ahmedabad is internationally recognized as a premier B-School that has been the alma mater of many industry stalwarts. Over the last 58 years, the institute has conceptualized and executed events that can harness innovation and insights to redefine management in our country.

The Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad is all set to host its biggest management symposium this year in a virtual format, on October 24th and October 25th. Appropriately named the Red Brick Summit (TRBS), after the famous environs that have come to be associated with over 50 years of academic excellence, the symposium will be a potpourri of the erstwhile Big Four of IIMA – Insight, Confluence, Amaethon and ConneXions – that have been a mainstay of our institute's event calendar all these years. Pioneered in 2017, this is Asia's largest management symposium that attracts over 60,000 participants every year.



The Red Brick Summit was conceived to challenge today's youth to think beyond their imagination. Through a plethora of competitive events, TRBS provides a platform for innovation and pushes participants to flex their brains. Growing with a strong trajectory, this year, we have 19 competitive events, including two international ventures. Witness the amalgamation of the best minds of this country at the epicenter of this brainstorming festival.


Disruption and dynamism are the prime characteristic of every professional field in this century. As aspiring thinkers and future leaders, it is essential for our generation to possess the ability to mould themselves to continuously evolve in this environment. The TRBS team is proud to present the workshop series for 2019 that would be conducted by some of the most renowned names across industries. Each workshop is strategized to ensure maximum interaction between the presenter and participants, encompassing a fascinating breadth of subject matter.

Last year, the workshops were hosted by senior executives from companies such as Microsoft, Zerodha, Capgemini, Google, TATA Trusts, Nielsen, Reliance, Uber, and Mad Over Marketing. The sessions overarched a broad range of themes including product management, finance, digital innovation, advertising trends etc. Spread over the course of the festival, these workshops elevate the learning experience for all attendees and gives a chance to learn directly from the pundits.


Pages of the TRBS diaries are studded with names that have inspired millions of people in our country. We present you with a chance to witness the aura of corporate behemoths, parliamentary dignitaries, renowned journalists, and activists that are shaping our nation. Every year, we invite experts from varying fields to share their stories and enlighten us with their learnings.
