NEW DELHI: Just over a month after the international Convergence Exhibition and Conference organized by the Broadcast Engineering Society (India) early this month, two more such exhibitions are on the anvil next month – one in the capital and the other in Kolkata.

The Fourth International Converging World 2007 Exhibition and Seminar at the Netaji Indoor Stadium in Kolkata from March 9 to 11 has been organized by Zeal Broadband Solutions, while the 15th Convergence India International exhibition and conference at Pragati Maidan in Delhi from March 20 to 22 is being put together by Exhibitions India in collaboration with the Cellular Operators Association of India. Both Zeal and Exhibitions India are Delhi-based.

The first Convergence India had been organized fifteen years earlier jointly by Exhibitions India and BES (I) but the two had parted ways after two shows and have been organizing separate events. The BES (I) meet this year had taken place from February One to three.

The Kolkata event is focused on Broadband and Triple Play Solutions, Fibre to Home solutions, Satellite and Broadcasting Solutions, Internet Services and Solutions, Computer Networking, Mobile Communication and Accessories, Wireless Technologies, Total Telecom Solutions, Total Security Solutions, and Cable TV Services and Solutions.

There has been extensive promotion to support 'Converging World 2007' through Hoardings, Bus Back Panels, FM Radio Campaigning (RED FM-93.5), Mobile Balloon Campaigning, SMS Campaigning, E-Flyers Campaigning, Advertisements in Trade Magazines, and Campaigning in Television Channels like 'Akash Bangla' is promoting the event as the Official Channel Partner. Smart - Reliance GSM Service as the 'Associate Sponsor' doing an interesting SMS Campaign with the 'Visit & Win' concept.

Meanwhile, the 14th Convergence India last year had attracted 386 participants from 25 countries and Exhibitions India founder Prem Behl told indiantelevision.com that the meet this year was expected to surpass that figure. The meet will see the participation of the telecom, mobility, broadcast, cable, satellite, information and technology, and information security sectors. A special feature is the theme pavilion to be set up by the International Security Industry Organisation being set up for the first time as part of this fete.

There will be a workshop on e-governance, and the conference will bring together industry leaders, investors, government officials and users on a single platform to discuss all aspects of the ICT industry. Subjects include ‘Next Gen Telecom’, ‘Wireless Delivery: Broadband for all’, ‘Services on Demand: Business and Infotainment’, ‘Towards Mobile Information Society’, ‘Security Challenges for the Enterprise’, and “Enabling SMB’s and SME’s for tomorrow’s growth”.

Exhibitions India also publishes the monthly 'Convergence Plus' journal to publicise the advantages of convergence of information communication, telecom and broadcasting.
