About SEIC 2023

The Sugar and Ethanol India Conference (SEIC) produced, conceptualised and organised by ChiniMandi has gained an iconic stature in the Sugar and Ethanol multiverse. As India’s premier Conference dedicated exclusively to Sugar, Ethanol and Allied Industries, SEIC has claimed the top spot of ‘Business Networking’, forming an invaluable link in the echelons of power and policy corridors, sugar industry inc., OMCs, suppliers, consumers, traders, brokers, farmers etc. SEIC serves as a cauldron of leaders, thought provocateurs, disrupters and visionaries, who gather under one roof to discuss, brainstorm and envisage the next big ‘Agenda & Idea’.
SEIC started in 2022, with the first Conference in Mumbai. In 2023, the second conference was held in New Delhi. Ever since then, it has grown in strength, size and acceptability. The 3rd Edition of SEIC was organised in New Delhi on 1st and 2nd February 2024 at Hotel Andaz by Hyatt at Aerocity New Delhi.
