The Star Nite Awards 2015 will be best remembered for three things – the presence of a host of distinguished dignitaries, IT honchos, senior bureaucrats and government officials, the Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) from the industry and last but not the least the top performers from the field of ICT. The 14th leg of the Awards that was organized by Kalinga Digital Media lived up to the tradition of its predecessors and the reputation it has gained during its primitive years. With the theme of the event being “CHANNEL FIRST”, this event was entirely dedicated to the Indian Channel Partners from the ICT industry.
