About MAXI: The Marketing Association of XLRI, or MAXI as it's fondly known, is the oldest committee on campus. Established forty-six years ago, in 1971, MAXI's mandate has always been simple - to popularize the field of Marketing at XLRI and ensure that fun and quirkiness are an integral part of the entire process. This is achieved through a mix of competitive events, talks, interaction sessions, conferences, and of course, the world-renowned MAXI Fair. It is often said that Marketing is something that needs to be experienced rather than studied, and MAXI uses this as one of its guiding principles. MAXI's events are designed to give students a deep, working insight into what Marketing is really about. MAXI is possibly the best-known and most respected committee, both within and outside XLRI. This standing is a result of constant innovation - be it in the more famous form of MAXI Fair, or other initiatives like Mindscapes - India's first seminar on the applications of Behavioral Research in Marketing
