Coimbatore Information Technology Association (CITA) is organizing Compu-Fest

2009 for the fifth time. The three-day event will take place between July 31 and

August 2 at Padmavathi Ammal Cultural Center, Avinashi Road, Coimbatore.

Senthil Kumar, Treasurer, CITA and Organizer of Compu-Fest 2009, said that

the exhibition would be the best platform for dealers to beat the slowdown. “We

have allotted nearly 81 stalls for the expo and are awaiting bookings. It's the

best platform in the region for the IT business community and our customers to

come together. We expect the number of visitors to cross the last year's 35,000


Rajinikanth, President, CITA, said, “We expect this expo to be a grand

success despite the market slump, because when the market is good we do 10 right

things and when it is otherwise we do 20 right things. We have done all the

things necessary to make this event beneficial to the vendors and our customers

as well.”


R Mahesh, VP, CITA, claimed that this expo would be a catalyst during the

time of slowdown to increase the customer awareness. “Generally, when there is a

budget presented in the parliament, the customers would expect the prices to

fall and these kind of expos would enlighten them on actual happenings on the

price front.”

Mahesh also added that the expo would see the movement of low-price products

like netbooks.

The association expects visitors from nearby towns such as Tirupur, Pollachi

and Udumalpet and has planned to conduct lucky draws for registered visitors.
