Kochi to host India IT Summit 2013 in December


Trivandrum: The Confederation of Indian Industry, Kerala is organising the fourth edition of India IT Summit on December 20, 2013 at Kochi. The theme of the summit is ‘Technology Solutions for Evolving Business Priorities’.

India IT Summit – CII’s flagship programme on Information Technology is being organized biannually to facilitate the growth of IT & ITeS industry in Kerala. The last edition was held in Thiruvananthapuram in January 2012.

According to a communiqué from CII Kochi office, the 2013 edition of the summit will have over 20 eminent personalities and thought leaders, from across the country, discussing subjects of national and international relevance. Over 300 delegates – CEOs, industry experts, politicians, academicians, government officials and members of the media – are expected to participate in these discussions.

The one day conference will see industry experts discuss the challenges faced by the IT industry and the strategies required to address them, over three plenary sessions focusing on – Business Risk and Opportunities; Technology for Healthcare, Retail, Hospitality & Tourism; and Transformative Megatrends in IT.

Domestic IT demand in India is expected to surpass US $90 billion in the next decade. This clearly shows that information technology is a sector which will likely be one of the emerging markets in the days to come as India’s economy requires more hardware, software and other IT services. The India IT Summit would also explore ways on how the IT industry in Kerala can tap this market.

The inaugural India IT Summit was held in December 2009 at Kovalam and the second edition, in December 2010 at Kochi.
