Corporate gift giving is serious business. As part of a well-considered program, it can help establish or enhance critical relationships and become a cost-effective means of recognizing activities that benefit the business. Reasons for gift giving range from thanking long-standing customers for their business to recognizing a valued employee for working on a weekend.

The basic reason is the same: to affirm relationships and enhance the personal connection between giver and recipient. Here is Noida-based Consortium Gifts, an integrated gifting and pro-motional products company aiming to redefine the concept of corporate gifting in India. Founded by Mr. Gaurav Bhagat in 1999, it has become established as a quality player in a largely fragmented market.

How are corporate gifts different from promotional gifts?
Consortium Gifts offers innovative gifting solutions, to the world's best-known companies. Catering to the needs of a wide range of customers across the globe, they carry a large inventory, which is also very unique and innovative. Consortium's range of products include an array of designer accessories from the house of Shantanu and Nikhil, the Wow Taj collection designed by double red dot design winner Sandeep Paul and more.
All products of the highest quality and that is probably why they have 400 plus active clients, serviced by seven offices in six cities in the country. The company is unique in its ability to offer an extensive range of products and a host of services to ensure that their clients have the best experience always. Consortium Gift is the only company from India proud to be a member of IGC global promotions. To put this in perspective IGC chooses only one gifting company per country after the strictest due diligence and IGC members do close to one billion dollars of annual billing.

Consortium Gifts understand corporate gifts are not the same as promotional gifts intended for advertising to publicly promote products or services. Many corporate gifting companies will market promotional items as corporate gift show ever Consortium is well aware of what is needed to build ever-lasting business relations with clients and customers. The company is constantly innovating and thinking of new and interesting products to offer their clients. Their mindset of being consultants and problem solvers is unique and that really sets them apart.
