On 3 June 2009, Chelsea Football Club will play host to the UK India Business Council's Business India Forum in London.

IPL has made cricket into a billion–dollar sport and luxury brands such as Armani, Versace, Rolls–Royce and Cartier are already well–established in India. However these are nascent markets with huge growth potential and there are many opportunities for both Indian and UK companies with expertise to work together in the coming years. High profile speakers from these industries will outline the current situation in these sectors and highlight the significant opportunities for both Indian and UK companies.
