This year’s theme was JAMBOREE, which is a Goa-driven carnival. The idea for conducting XPPRESSIONS was conceived by Dr. Patangrao Kadam under the guidance of Dr. Sachin S Varnekar, Dean of Management Faculty of Bharati Vidyapeeth and Director of IMED.

Dr Pravin Mane, Chief Coordinator, said “Every event requires planning, coordination, and discipline.” He appreciated the effort of the decoration team, discipline team, and event heads who gave their best and made the first day of XPRESSIONS 23 successful.
The first day of XPPRESSIONS’23 saw 15 different stalls offering food, jewelry, games, and a photo booth via Launchpad and CWTED. This year, Launchpad has merged with CWTED (Community Work Through Entrepreneurship Development) to support small vendors. Not only the students but also faculty members enjoyed the inauguration and Launchpad.
