The event connected students with global university representatives, parents, and guidance counsellors. Highlights included interactive panel discussions with accomplished students and award ceremonies honouring exceptional educators.

The highlight of the fair was the student panels showcasing young achievers from diverse fields, including innovators, entrepreneurs, UN representatives, and TEDx speakers.

Featuring accomplished students like Yagis Ozenci (Economics & Physics, University of Pennsylvania), Samarth Gupta (engineering acceptances at University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign and Purdue), Sumedha Katti (acceptances at Purdue University, Boston University), and Mehvish Tejvani (acceptances at Purdue University, Boston University), the discussion covered topics from crafting compelling applications to aligning programmes with personal goals. Aspiring medical professionals were treated to a panel featuring Sitara Brooj Akbar, the world's youngest A-Level achiever and a doctoral candidate at Oxford University, alongside Shuktij Verma, who secured acceptances from the University of Brunel and the University of Washington.

The event featured a keynote speech by Reema Mahajan, an IIT Delhi and IIM Bangalore alumna and the founder and admin of Indian Women in Dubai (IWD).
