The much talked about Tech summit organized by ISODA annually provides a wide platform to Vendors for meeting the members of the associations from Pan India under one roof. This year the association is organising Tech Summit in January which will run for 4 days from Jan 23-26 in Pattaya. Nityanand Shetty, President ISODA speaks on why the theme is “Collaboration” in 2014.
What is the theme of the ISODA Tech summit 2014?
The theme for this year Tech summit is collaboration. As the market conditions are bad and people are looking for new ways to run business, Tech summit is the perfect answer to them. If you look at the market dynamics, people are looking at new ways to excel in businesses and the summit will cater to all those needs of the members.
How the event is beneficial for the members?
The members get the platform to meet each other. Since it is an annual event it becomes a good platform for members to form new relations, new bonding. Members from all over India come to attend this summit and through this we get to know the market region wise. The members exchange lot of information and good business practices that help each other. It’s a platform where members interact with different partners, vendors, how people in the industry functions and get to learn about new things how the industry works. The summit gives better vision and exposure to the member.
Who all are the sponsors?
We have tied up with two to three sponsors.
What is the focus of organising the event?
Through this summit people meet each other. We have regional meets every quarter where members get the chance to meet people from that particular region. However, tech summit is an event where people come from across the country. We are covering the length and breadth of the country in tech summit. I have got the chance to meet partner from Jammu and got to know the difficulties of business in the region so in this way it is a great platform to understand the market of different regions.
How many companies are participating in the event?
We have got confirmation from 60-70 companies.
What are the highlights of the event?
Tech summit as an event was done first time in Bangkok. It was very successful and then we decided to organize it every year in a new region. Since this is a very big event it requires lot of logistics, infrastructure and 2-3 months planning. The event is organized by the members of different regions every year and this year it is organized by the North region. This way we get the flavor of different regions every year. We are working very hard to make it a success this year as well.
