The South Indian Business Achievers (SIBA), an internationally conducted award night, in association with Ernst & Young, that has brought together top business leaders and achievers from all over the globe with a South Indian lineage. The primary objective of the conference was to influence the future generation businessmen and entrepreneurs of the Southern states, and to engage with likeminded achievers from the community.

Organsied by Vibri Media, a Hyderabad based Media and Entertainment company, which also owns and promotes two rather successful entertainment properties, namely the Celebrity Cricket League (a franchise based T20 cricket tournament featuring the leading film stars from all over the country) and the South Indian International Movie Awards (annually held film awards show commemorating the very best of south Indian cinema). Both these properties have firmly established themselves over the last 5 years.
