There are 400+ Chicago Booth alumni in India, making a difference as corporate executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and change agents in various industries and sectors.

The annual Pan-India Booth Alumni Retreat (PiBar), hosted in a different city each year, brings a sizable fraction of them together, for a weekend of networking, learning, and fun. Earlier editions were held in Delhi (2012 & 2014), Mumbai (2013), Bengaluru (2015), Goa (2016), Chennai (2017), and Lonavala (2018).

Between 150 and 200 people (from 20+ metros and 7+ countries) attended each of the last two retreats. As before, spouses/significant others and kids are also welcome to attend PiBar 2019, with family-friendly activities to engage them.

New Delhi

As Lonely Planet puts it: "Steeped in history yet overflowing with modern life, colorful, cacophonous Delhi pulsates with the relentless rhythms of humanity like few other cities on Earth."

And according to the official Delhi Tourism corporation, "the best time to visit Delhi is from October to March, when the weather is at its best." So, make a long weekend of it with family this November!


Registrations will open in a month or so. Meanwhile, go ahead and pre-register. (It will help with pricing.)
