25 things to do in Bengaluru

1.) Take a walk in Cubbon Park. Spread over 300 acres, in the heart of the city, and home to over 6,000 trees, the park is a nature lover's treat.

Designer of the Conference logo

"Bengaluru is well-known for its numerous gardens, museums, natural attractions, palaces and temples. The idea was born to make the logo, a trademark, an indication of where the event will take place. I started to draw the silhouettes of Bangalore Palace, which then became part of the logo. I also wanted to include the colours of the Indian flag. A third and important element was to represent the diversity among the different nations and groups. So I chose joyful characters who come from everywhere to interact and have fun. Overall, I have made an effort to make the viewer enjoy the Conference, the diversity and India." ~ Marielena Böger (Currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Communications Design in Germany)
