With guests including Sachin Tendulkar, Dia Mirza and Mukesh and Nita Ambani, and with a live performance by music legend Sting, the first edition of the Jodhpur One World Retreat was considered a stunning success.

Described as a preferable alternative to Davos (“shoulder-rubbing with the great and good has never been so exotic”, Victoria Mather, Vanity Fair), the Jodhpur One World Retreat will bring together the globe’s greatest minds from business, entrepreneurship, the arts, science, entertainment and philanthropy in “three glorious days of awareness and awakening, of music and spectacle and of giving and learning”. The sole objective is to support and celebrate the Indian Head Injury Foundation, with the proceeds to be donated to what is increasingly becoming a cause that is resonating with the Indian community, public and corporates alike, in a major way today. In fact, several corporate heads have already registered to donate and participate in the second edition of the Retreat.

“The object of the Jodhpur One World Retreat is to raise awareness and resources for the Indian Head Injury Foundation, which I founded after my son’s accident on the polo field some years ago. It has been charged with a mission very close to my heart and I look forward to the continued and increased support of the many who attended the Retreat; and of the many more, who will, I fervently hope, attend in the future.”
His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh II of Jodhpur

Highlights of the second edition includes provoking and enlightening sessions with leading lights such as Dr. Jamshid Ghajar, Founder Brain Trauma Foundation, U.S.A; a charity auction hosted by international auction house Christie’s; a unique fashion extravaganza at Mehrangarh fort; an address by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev and performances by the Eton Choir as well as ‘India’s Got Talent’ winners the Shillong Chamber Choir.

The 2015 edition aims to equal, if not go one better on the impressive inaugural edition of the fundraising event. The Taj Group of Hotels and global automotive giant, BMW who supported the Inaugural edition have already come on board to lend their support to the next edition of the fund-raising event.

​About the Indian Head Injury Foundation:

Founded in February 2007, the IHIF mission is to build a comprehensive system in India for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury, and to provide neuro-rehabilitation to such patients. At a time when concerns for road safety in India are at a peak, the work of Indian Head Injury Foundation is critical. According to a WHO report, India has the highest number of road deaths in the world (1,05,725 in 4,00,000 accidents). This gives India the dubious distinction of being the ‘head injury capital of the world’.

With donations for participation in the retreat (ranging from 10-15 Lakh Rupees, depending on the residential package selected), going to Indian Head Injury Foundation, the Jodhpur One World Retreat is a critical event raising awareness and financial support for a critical issue in India.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
