Dear BITSians,

We are excited to have you join us for the next edition of BITSAA Global Meet (BGM) from January 5th – 7th, 2017 at Dubai, U.A.E.

Meeting old friends, making new ones, keynotes, various panel discussions, good food, ample networking, desert night, souq walk, great music & entertainment and more – there are many reasons to attend the BITSAA Global Meet 2017.

We are putting together a good mix of events and your participation is key to a successful reunion. We look forward to celebrating BGM 2017 with you and simply enjoying being together as BITSians.
