ISSP General Assembly: India 2019
Welcome to first ever ISSP gathering in India.
The year 2019 is special in many ways. While you will be in India attending the General Assembly, the time frame will also be the coinciding with the Parliamentary Elections in India, which arguably are the largest Democratic exercise on Planet Earth. No less than 900 million voters will be electing 543 MPs across India, on EVM (Electronic Voting Machines) and the Election Commission will run the multi-phase elections followed by lightning speed of counting, where these hundreds of millions of votes would be counted on EVM in just couple of hours flat to declare the results. You are bound to see some of that vibrant action during your visit.
The year 2019 is also special for Team CVoter, as it will mark the 25th year of our Operations. It was in the year 1994 when CVoter was founded, to act as an interface between the people and the polity. There were only 3 colleagues and one single 286 Computer when we started. Today the 150+ membered team works from two state-of-the-art Global CATI centers. During last two decades it has established itself as largest Indian owned public opinion and stakeholder research agency. And what better way we could have dreamt of, than to celebrate our landmark year by hosting you at the ISSP General Assembly.
So, with this context and backdrop of events, let me welcome you to India. We are honored to host the ISSP General Assembly and will try our best to make your stay comfortable with ethos of Indian values:
which means ‘the entire world is our family’. Kindly accept our invitation as your own family and be absolutely at home while enjoying your stay in India.
Our colleagues at ISSP Secretariat at Manheim have already mailed the official invitation letter and VISA letter for the Indian Consulate. Kindly register yourself for the event here on the given link. After registering, you will get the link to book your Hotel rooms. Our hospitality partners have struck an amazing package with transit hotel in Delhi as well as the main Conference Hotel in Jaipur. Even though you are absolutely free to book any other Hotel, but we would strongly recommend to take advantage of these arrangements, not just they are extremely cost effective and cover all meals, but also from the perspective that we would be travelling a lot in this GA and it would be really helpful for all practical purpose, if all of us are putting up in the same place.
We would also request to inform us your detailed itinerary as soon as you have booked your Flights, so that we can make proper arrangement/advise on local transportation.
