Pune-based Computer Media Dealers Association (CMDA) has announced its plans

to launch a magazine in the first week of May. CMDA Times, as the magazine would

be known, will have technical write-ups, give information about new products

launched, and the achievements of CMDA members, besides adverts.

“Various dealers and vendors have already advertised in CMDA Times. The

magazine would update our members and partners across Pune about the trends,

technologies, product launches, activities and events that CMDA holds regularly.

It would also help us highlight the achievements of our members,” shared Sunil

Gugale, President, CMDA, Pune.

The issue will be a monthly feature with around 50 pages. Besides CMDA

members, it will be distributed to around 2,000 other partners in Pune free of



CMDA Times would serve as a revenue generator for the association. “We have

outsourced the contract to an agency on a revenue sharing basis and have signed

a three year agreement for the same,” explained Gugale. To promote the magazine,

CMDA has sent mails to all its partners in Pune informing them about its content

and availability.

The association is also planning to launch CMDA-ABEE Cricket Team shortly.

The team has been sponsored by ABEE Computers for the duration of three years,

and will give around Rs 1.5 lakh to CMDA to support the team. “CMDA-ABEE Cricket

Team will participate in local and private tourna­ments in Pune and neighboring

regions. The team will have CMDA-ABEE branding on players' T-shirts, caps, etc,”

said Gugale.
