Frequently Asked Questions

Why and how is TILE different from the other expos of the country?
The Indian Luxury Expo (TILE) is one of its kind expo in luxury segments. It is a pan-India exhibition to be held in 7 cities in India across 12 months. A luxury expo with such a vast geographic coverage has not yet been planned in India. On such a huge platform, a wide assortment of luxury and affluent brands of global stature shall be exhibited ranging in various categories. The segments include Yachts, Aircrafts, Helicopters, Cars, Bikes, Interior decor, Jewellery, Couture, Accessories, Watches, Fragrances, Beverages, Appliances, Art & Collectibles, Luxury Homes, Travel, Banking and more. The expo comprises of a highly esteemed advisory board and personally invited guests, which makes it a perfect opportunity for networking and socialising as well.
How have the members of the advisory board been selected and what are their roles?
The Expo will be an annual extravaganza that will be guided by the 30 handpicked members of its advisory board being formed with just one underlying principle – our members understand luxury in all its dimensions. They are extremely valued and resected individuals from various walks of life such as-politics, art, fashion, media, the Indian film industry, business, sports, banking and socialites. Indeed, as you know luxury is indulgence of the senses. The board will advise us not only on the reputation quotient of the expo, but the members will also be a part of the screening process for the brands as well as the visitors. The Advisory Board might be reshuffled after three years.
Are you going to mix all the categories together on the floor plan, or will you allocate sections for each category?
The floors will be divided into different categories. Each category will have not more than a couple of brands. Competing brands will be earmarked with a minimum 20,000 square feet gap, as per the design parameters set up by renowned designers Ameer & Hameeda. This provides exhibitors with more freedom of choice when selecting an area.
