This included focus on emerging sectors, opportunity to garner more business, knowledge enhancement and networking. We are delighted to note that all these objectives and more have been addressed at the Bangalore 2010 and it has emerged as a focused B2B event”.

Added David Keynan, CEO , BDO-I2I, Israel, “We have been working with the BangaloreIT.Biz event organizers for the last six months on enhancing the relationship between Karnataka ITBT ministry and the Israeli high tech industry. Now that the conference is over, we could say that reality has exceeded expectations in more than one way. The event was the trigger and venue for the Karnataka-Israel R&D collaboration agreement with Matimop, expected to be signed in few weeks at the ministers’ level.”
With this year’s theme “Billion Strong- Empowered by ICT” the event featured conference tracks on e-governance, GIS, embedded technology, IT applications in frontier technologies, animation and energy & environment to name a few. The International conference focussed on the benefits of cloud computing and growth drivers for IT in India.
