Visitors can immerse themselves in the cultural journey, participating in workshops such as Crafts Workshop, Adi Chitra (painting display) event, and industry-oriented B2B Sessions. Industry leaders from ASSOCHAM, PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), DICCI, Delhi Chamber of Commerce, Indian Chamber of Commerce, and FICCI will participate in these sessions, contributing to the scaling up of tribal products through entrepreneurial ventures.
