India’s Largest IT event – Indiasoft , 2021 edition

The INDIASOFT -2021 International IT exhibition and conference, the flagship annual event of Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC), will be organized virtually from March 5- 31st March, bringing together over 1000 buyers and investors across the continents.

Giving details of this year’s unique INDIASOFT- 2021, Mr Nalin Kohli, Chairman, INDIASOFT said that for the first time, the event will have three important components, such as an Inaugural- a focussed brainstorming session to take stock of the post-COVID-19 developments in the software segment in its entirety involving policymakers, industry players, and global experts.

The B2B meetings to be held from 9th March will bring the Indian software developers upfront with software and solutions buyers from all over the world.

The third tier-Bilateral Investment Meets-involving industry players from countries will focus on specific countries to create a road map for facilitating investments and technology cooperation.

“The differentiator this time around is the large participation of the stakeholders from developed markets like the US, the UK, Germany, Japan, South Korea etc., giving participants from India greater scope and range to clinch export and investment deals,” Mr Kohli said, adding that the long duration of the virtual B2B meetings would enable more scope for Indian companies, particularly MSMEs to display their products digitally and handhold with the overseas buyers, which can lead to concrete business deals.

INDIASOFT, which is holding its 21st edition this year, has now emerged as one of the largest IT shows in the MSME and startup sectors in the world. Over the years, it has been acting as a catalyst for handholding Indian ICT players with overseas buyers. The platform is being used by many companies to launch new products and solutions.
