What is the weather like in during the duration of INK 2017? 

The winter season begins in Hyderabad during the month of November. The average temperature ranges between 29 degrees to 14 degrees Celsius. It can get quite chilly late in the nights. This time is also considered ideal for city tours to visit the monuments and other city sights. 

Packing tips - 

Pack for the weather suggested. You may need sun glasses and sun block for the sunny afternoons, lots of business cards so people can keep in touch with you. And for all those who shiver under the slightest suggestion of an overactive air conditioning unit, you may need a jacket or sweater indoors while in the conference auditorium. 


If you still have some questions, please write to us here with Conference as the subject of your message.
