BENGALURU, August 5, 2017 — India Electronics Week 2018 will be held at KTPO, Whitefield from 7th Feb to 9th Feb, 2018. The shift from BIEC to KTPO is a strategic decision to move closer to the technology firms and institutions that dominate the Whitefield area. Unlike BIEC, the new venue is located near business and tech parks, and has lesser commute times from the centre of Bengaluru. Plus, the dates of IEW 2018 have been shifted to February too — as EFY’s team realised that being the year ending period, it becomes a challenge for decision makers to move out of their offices to attend technology events and trade shows.
“Based on the feedback from our visitors, we realised that for every decision maker who attends IEW, we lose out on two to three because of the time taken to commute to BIEC,” says Ramesh Chopra, Executive Chairman, EFY Group. “By shifting to BIEC, we expect to see a definite surge in the number of quality visitors to IEW. And, the fact that IOT remain one of the key highlights of IEW, and many IOT giants are based out of Whitefield, we expect it to be a super win-win for all.”
India Electronics Week is a mega show on electronics that focuses on promoting latest technologies and investments in India’s ESDM sector. IEW comprises of 5 majors shows being held together: IOTshow.in, EFY Expo, LEDAsia.in, T&M Expo and EFY Conferences. 10,000-plus visitors attended the 2017 edition of IEW, which was held at BIEC in March 2017. The key strength that differentiates IEW from other electronics-related events is the fact that the show hosts India’s #1 conference of electronics-EFY Conferences. The conference alone accounted for 3,000+ delegates who benefited from talks of 150+ industry experts.
