ABP Group in strategic pact with CeBIT for Infocom 2006

Anand Bazar Patrika Group (ABP) promoted annual ICT conference and exposition, Infocom 2006, has formed a strategic alliance with CeBIT, the world’s largest trade fair. CeBIT will be an exclusive partner of Infocom 2006, marking the entry of the world-renowned fair into India.

Launched in 2002, the annual Infocom is organised in Kolkata jointly by BusinessWorld magazine and software industry body Nasscom. This year, the event is scheduled for December 6-10, 2006. A special European pavilion will be arranged at the Infocom exhibition this year.

“The Infocom exhibition is at the threshold of next generation of IT exhibition. It was launched with a vision to create the perfect ICT market catalyst not just in India but globally. Our partnership with CeBIT is a major step towards this aim as we see the partnership blossoming into a definitive platform for both trade and intellectual exchange in the future,” Dr Pramath Raj Sinha, MD & CEO, ABP Pvt Ltd.

CeBIT IT fair is held every year in Hanover, Germany. Speaking on the occasion Dr Eberhard Roloff, Director-Central and Eastern Europe, Deutsche Messe AG, the organiser of CeBIT, said, “We are keenly looking forward to the event. Many small and medium IT companies of Europe have evinced interest to participate in this event.”

Asked about the revenue the event generates, D D Purkayastha, Executive Director & COO, ABP Pvt Ltd, said, “This year, the event is expected to generate revenue worth Rs 10 crore, and in five years from now, we expect the revenue figure to touch Rs 300 crore.”

On the strategic alliance with CeBIT, Purkayastha said, “Though the alliance is for this year only, it may grow into a more binding partnership in future, like a equity partnership.”

Kiran Karnik, President, Nasscom, said, “With Indian IT exports touching $24 billion and expected to go up to $60 billion by 2010, the Indian story is very promising. The association of Infocom with CeBIT is a landmark development and indicator of global crossover for Infocom. With more foreign IT companies coming to India, they could find it a suitable place to set up manufacturing facilities.”

The theme of this year’s event is ‘Innovate to differentiate’ and Infocom is organising a global essay competition on the theme among B School students. The winners will be presented with the Infocom Future Leadership Award (IFLA) by President of India, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, who will also inaugurate the event.
