The idea was conceived by Colonel Indrabalan and his team of twelve would-be executives from the class of 2009. Prof Parameshwar P Iyer, Principal Research Scientist and Head Placement and Industrial Liaison at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore was the Chief Guest for the meet. Also present at the meet was Mr Ramesh Hariharan, who is the founder Director of Deffusion Consulting and Managing Trustee of LeadCap. Also, Mr Ravichandran Rajamannar attended the meet and apprised the alumni about the initiatives taken by the PAN IIT Alumni Association.

The alumni were received by a performance of the Madras Engineersa Group Pipe Band which has been a part of aBeating the Retreata at the Republic Day parade. The characteristic notes of the Saraswati Vandana laid an auspicious foundation to the official start of the alumni meet followed by a speech by the organizing team, where the call for greater accountability of the alumni was made. As part of the alumni meet, a small video capturing the moments of VGSoM right from its inception was shown to the 80 alumni attending the meet, who became nostalgic about the past memories. Also, there was an open house discussion about the role of the alumni in strengthening the brand of VGSoM.

The felicitation of the two of the senior-most members, in order of the year they graduated in, stood out as a humorous moment coupled with nostalgia and a moment where the tide reversed, current students felicitating the ex-students. The event was attended by the sponsors Canon, Golden Gate along with the beverage partners United Breweries and Red Bull. The meet concluded with a dinner.
