Erode dealers IT Association (EdITA) will conduct their annual IT expo this

August. The three-day event will take place from August 22-24. “The focus of the

expo is to create awareness about IT and IT related products. There are lots of

people in upcountry regions who aren't comfortable working on a computer. This

exhibition would provide them a good platform for learning,” informed KP

Muthuarasu, Project Chairman, EdITA Computer Exhibition.

For the first time Microsoft is joining hands with Erode association as

co-sponsor of the event along with Samsung. Almost 50 stalls have been booked so

far and the association is expecting further bookings. “Only 50 percent of our

members have came forward for participation and we are waiting for few more

people to join us. After that the stall count would increase considerably,”

Muthuarasu claimed.

He also said that the expo would offer various discounts to end-users.

“Usually only such offers and discounts draw huge crowds. Post the event we

expect to get lots of calls for bookings and business will be really good for

the next three months,” he informed. For the first time the association has

planned to conduct seminars for the public. “Our district has lot of schools and

colleges, and SMEs, corporate and government sector is huge. So the walk-ins

will be enormous. We have proposed to conduct computer awareness pro-grams on

Aug 23 and 24 for the benefit of the public,” Mutharasu informed.

The association will conduct different sessions that will interest the

public. “There would be a session on semiconductors targeting the college

students, a session on e-commerce, e-tax, Internet banking for professionals and

one on convergence to increase the awareness of using convergence devices such

as bluetooth, wireless etc,” informed Raja CSN, Spokesperson, EdITA.

He also said that through the expo they would create awareness about original

software. “Many users till date feel that they should get software free of cost,

which is ridiculous. All the dealers in Erode are only dealing with OEMs and we

will encourage users to use original software only. This time Microsoft has

joined hand with us. We will take their help and educate customers on the

benefits of going for original operating system,” Raja averred.
