Quiz on the Beach® (QoTB®) is Asia’s biggest on-campus quiz, conducted by T.A. Pai Management Institute, Manipal. Having started as an intercollege fest 15 years ago, QoTB® has developed its identity across India and other nations.
QoTB® was conceptualized in the year 2004 with the aim of creating a healthy competitive environment in which students from across the world would vie with each other for the coveted QoTB® Champions tag. Besides bringing together the sharpest student minds, it serves as an opportunity for them to interact, network and more importantly, learn from their colleagues in other top institutes.
With its roots spread across three countries- India, Singapore and United Arab Emirates, QoTB® has grown exponentially. The latest edition of the quiz, QoTB® 2018, saw over 3000 teams from 3 countries fighting it out for fame, glory and an overwhelming cash reward.
The Quiz on The Beach® was held across 10 Indian cities namely Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Manipal and Lucknow. To add on to the royal trail, the international qualifiers were held at Singapore and Dubai.
The nationally telecasted show over ET Now enjoys the viewership of over 2 lakh people. QoTB® is hosted by the noted Quizmaster Mr Giri ‘Pickbrain’ Balasubramanium, an avid quizzer himself.
