JGC’s 16th annual conference will once again attempt to congregate all its global members in one location, thus saving a ton of money and time for every member who would otherwise have had to visit their member-partners in their individual countries!!
Based on a majority vote at the 15th annual conference that was successfully held in Penang, Malaysia, Goa, India was nominated as the venue for this year’s meet.
Why attend: We are aware of the fact that members are in constant touch with each other via online communication. However, there is nothing like face to face meetings to redevelop camaraderie at least once a year. The relaxed and gorgeous venue that we have selected will definitely aid in creating lasting liaisons too!
JGC is very unique with its conference arrangements.
JGC is the only network that has a 5 days/4 nights almost all inclusive event.
JGC motto of “Work hard – play harder” makes certain that the rigorous one and half days of one to one meetings, allows participants to immerse themselves in discussions with each other on mutual support and business development tactics, while at the same time creating mutually meaningful personal relationships.
Knowing your business partners professionally and personally can only help with business development plans.
Each year new membership to the JGC injects new ideas and challenges to the group. New members are provided a platform to present themselves and their unique services and enlighten us on new or different processes and procedures.

Pint-sized Goa is more than beaches and trance parties.
A kaleidoscopic blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures, sweetened with sun, sea, sand, seafood and spirituality, there’s nowhere in India quite like it.
Goa’s biggest draw is undoubtedly its virtually uninterrupted string of golden-sand beaches. This shimmering strand stretches along the Arabian Sea from the tip to the toe of the state, and each of the various beaches have developed their own personalities and reputations since the hippie days of the sixties. They cater to every tropical whim: choose from backpacker Arambol or bolder, brasher Baga; from the palm-fringed sands of Palolem to hippie market bliss at Anjuna or lovely, laid-back Mandrem; from expansive groomed sands in front of fancy five-star resorts or hidden crescent coves, where the only footprints will be the scuttling crabs’ and your own.
Want to top up your Zen as well as your tan? Welcome to winter in Goa where yoga is king and the crop of spiritual activities grows more bountiful each year: sunrise t’ai chi sessions, reiki healing courses, meditation, and just about every other form of spiritual exploration, are all practiced freely. Many travelers come here for a serious yoga experience and you’ll find everything from drop-in classes to teaching training courses and spiritual retreats.
Life is just a spice in Goa
Food is enjoyed fully in Goa, as it is throughout India. The scents, spices and flavors of Goa’s cuisine will surprise and tantalize even seasoned travelers: whether it’s a classic fish curry rice, a morning bhali-pau (bread roll dipped in curry), a piquant vindaloo, with its infusions of wine vinegar and garlic, or a spicy xacuti sauce, the Indo-Portuguese influence is a treat for the taste buds. While you’re here, visit a back-country spice farm to learn why the Portuguese were so excited about Goa.
The Portuguese connection
Goa stands out in India for its Portuguese colonial architecture and heritage. The Portuguese arrived in Goa in 1510, lured by the exotic East and the promise of lucrative spice routes. Their indelible mark is still evident in the state’s baroque architecture, whitewashed churches, crumbling forts, colorful Catholic ceremonies, mournful fado music and the stunning cathedrals of Old Goa.
