The Ministry of Electronics & IT (MeitY) has extended its support to India Electronics Week (IEW) 2017 in recognition of the fact that this show provides the right platform for showcasing the Electronic System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) sector in India.
IEW is a mega event for the electronics industry, the inaugural edition of which was organised in 2016 by EFY (Electronics For You) Group. This media group has played the role of a knowledge-sharing and marketing partner to the electronics industry since 1969. IEW 2017 is going to be held from March 2nd to 4th, 2017 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), Bengaluru, with seven co-located shows including Electronics For You Expo (seventh edition), Electronics Rocks (fifth edition), Test & Measurement India (sixth edition), LEDAsia.in (second edition), IoTshow.in (second edition), Raksha India (second edition) and DIY Expo (first edition).
While continuing to add value through conferences, buyer-seller meet, government-to-business interactions, workshops, etc, IEW 2017 will increase its focus on innovation and investment promotion. National programmes like ‘Make in India‘ and ‘Digital India’ will be promoted during the event to encourage domestic manufacturing and value addition.
The show caters to manufacturers, developers and technology leaders interested in the domestic as well as global markets, offering them a platform to display their products and services. It acts as a catalyst for accelerated growth and value addition, acquisition of technology and joint ventures between Indian and global players to enable the growth of the Indian ESDM industry. IEW features participation from manufacturers and distributors of electronic components, raw materials, assemblies and capital equipment as well as EMS providers. This will bring together the business and technology aspects of electronics onto one platform for the benefit of all participants for the entire ESDM value chain.
Ramesh Chopra, Executive Chairman, EFY Group, said, “We thank MeitY for its continuous support towards our objective to bring the ESDM ecosystem partners together to facilitate networking, knowledge-sharing and marketing through our mega event – India Electronics Week (IEW). We have been organising several events for the ESDM sector for the last seven years – all of which were finally merged in 2016 to create India Electronics Week.”
