22nd edition of Convergence India takes place from 21-23 January
MUMBAI: Exhibitions India brings the 22nd edition of ‘Convergence India 2014’ to Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from 21 – 23 January.
Themed as ‘Connecting India’, South Asia’s largest ICT forum will offer a range of conferences and an exhibition focusing on new-age technologies and business solutions. The forthcoming international expo, supported by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, will facilitate the synergy between the knowledge experts, industry executives and stakeholders by bringing them on one platform.
Exhibition India Group chairman Prem Behl said, “Convergence is no longer about voice, data and image being driven down the same pipe. Convergence is about changing people’s lives, the way we live, communicate, are entertained and conduct our businesses, etc. This phenomena enables businesses to communicate and grow, enhances buying and selling opportunities, leads to economic development, and the upliftment of the weaker sections of society. Education, health, governance and other social objectives will be met through the convergence of technologies and ideas, which is the future”.
Highlighting the convergence of technologies will be 300 plus exhibitors from 21 countries. During the three-day event, more than 15,000 senior ICT professionals will showcase, network, brainstorm and exchange new ideas. The ICT industry’s blue-chip companies will be present, including UTStarcom, Exset, HiSilicon Technologies Co., Ltd, Logic Eastern, Pace Micro Technology Plc, RGB Networks, Phicomm, Verimatrix, and many more.
The international exhibition and conference will feature broadband networks, data communications, M2M applications, E-governance, digital homes etc. A top quality thought-leadership conference will feature visionary keynotes and panel discussions on the topics such as “Telecom Growth in India”, “Next Generation Television”, “Mobile Payments”, “Cloud Computing”, etc.
One of the key highlights of the exhibition last year was the Aegis Graham Bell Awards Jury round in association with the Aegis School of Business, which will once again return to honour the best innovations in the field of Telecom, Internet, Media and Edutainment.
Coming up for the first time in 2014 are:
First Telecom Summit 2014 on “Home Grown Technologies and Skills”, supported by Government of India (DoT & DeitY), which is jointly organized by EIG, Telecom Centers of Excellence (TCOE) India and Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC).
The ‘Afro-Asian Media Summit’ which is a collaboration between Southern African Broadcasting Association (Saba) and EIG, which will focus on emerging markets across the Asian and African stretch that are poised for a digital transformation in a converged era.
Exhibitions India Group VP SJ Singh said,“Today India stands amidst the process of transmogrification, where technology has completely changed the dynamics of how we think, communicate, learn and work. You will witness the convergence of broadcast technology with telecom, IT, and digital media platforms and their impact on our daily lives”.
