Pondicherry-based Information Technology Traders Association (ITTA) is

planning to conduct their yearly exhibition this time in January 2008. The

exhibition would commence on Jan 4 to 6, informed M Magesh, President, ITTA, who

is also Chairman of the expo. The CM and Education Minister of the state will

inaugurate the exhibition. Around 15,000 plus people from the state and nearby

state are expected to visit the exhibition, Magesh informed. He said, “This time

we are joining hands with corporate and government, and plan to conduct the

exhibition in a grand manner.” The prime reason behind the inclusion of

corporate and government is that since both are contributing to the trade on a

large scale, the association has included them as a part of the exhibition. More

than 1,000 corporate are expected to visit the exhibition.

The exhibition would also see vendors making presentations and displaying

their products, Magesh informed. Around 90 stalls have already been booked for

the event. This time the association plans to reach all the end users by

inviting even colleges for the exhibition. “Till last year we conducted it

internally for our business development and only for our clients, whereas this

time we have invited end-users, such as student community, to our exhibition,”

he said.

Pondicherry has around 15 colleges and students would be attending the

exhibition in order to get a demonstration of all IT hardware products. Besides

that, the students would also get the opportunity to make presentations on

hardware products to visitors. Since they would get exposure to all products,

from biotechnology to servers, it would give them the opportunity to gain

expertise in the domain of their choice, Magesh claimed.

"We will be offering gifts such

as pen drives, gold coins and other items to visitors every one hour, based

on the lucky draw"

The exhibition would also offer lot of gifts to the visitors. “We will be

offering gifts such as pen drives, gold coins and other items to visitors every

one hour, based on the lucky draw,” added Magesh. Going one step ahead, ITTA

will be offering free laptops to those who make a purchase of Rs 5,000 and

above. A lucky draw would decide the winners. On the whole, ITTA's aim is to

conduct an exhibition that is not only filled with fun but knowledge as well.
