Through the interactive sessions, I have now gained a bit of knowledge about the digital transformations in the design field. It is extremely beneficial for the next generation. Thank you for this expo.

It was an excellent and a very well-organized event. All the speakers were amazing and provided great insights about the field of art and design. The event also enlightened me about the possible future courses and colleges I could pursue as a student in this field. Thank you for making this possible!

Nice and smooth. Zista Events' coordinator was amazing. I had registered a month ago. She intimated me from time to time and shared updates. It was a very good initiative for students. The video streaming was good. I was happy to learn and interact.
