The Introduction

Welcome to 3rd India Deaf Expo 2012. We had this first similar conference at Coimbatore in 2007, the second one at New Delhi in 2010, and the 3rd conference will be held here at Mumbai on 29th and 30th of December 2012.

The line "With Proper Quality Education, Provision of Devices and Support from Community, the Deaf can excel in all fields" is always the main motto of this Conference.

Based on this slogan, the goal of this conference is to promote the public awareness about the Deaf, its rich Culture, Sign Language development and to achieve National support for the Deaf giving them several opportunities to improve their life.

There will be Sessions, Exhibitions, Entertainment (such as Drama, Dances, Games, Movies), Best Deaf Awards, and Miss Deaf India Pageant, all organized by the hard-working Deaf committee members in my team.

We strongly encourage you all to attend the Conference to socialize and share your knowledge with all of us. See you at the Conference.
