Telecommunication majors from across the world are all set to showcase emerging convergent technologies for new generation networks from March 22-24 at the 13th Convergence India 2005 exhibition at Delhi. The event is being organised by Exhibitions India and is co-sponsored by the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology, Government of India.
Prem Behl, Managing Director, Exhibitions India, said, "India is experiencing unprecedented growth in the telecommunications arena. This growth is estimated to lead to an expenditure of over $ 50 billion in India over the next six years. The same growth is expected on broadband and high speed Internet." He added that the event had molded some lasting alliances in the past and hoped to do the same this year too.
The organisers said that the conference would facilitate interaction among industry leaders, investors and government officials. It will provide the ideal forum to discuss converging technologies by stimulating new ideas and offering cost effective solutions.
The organisers said that industry professionals from a wide spectrum of sectors from the central and state governments are expected to attend the event. They also expect over 300 companies from 25 countries to participate in the event.
