Tvm: After taking a break last year, Tech-A-Break, the annual cultural fest of Technopark is back this year. The sixth edition of the week long celebrations will begin on February 19, 2010.
Tech-A-Break 2010 would see 6 days of celebrations and competitions culminating in a mega entertainment event on February 26. Celebrations include inter-company Music and Dance competitions, Fashion Show Contest and Sports. The festivities with begin with a colourful pageantry on the sprawling Technopark campus, as in the previous years.
In 2009, Tech-a-Break was a casualty of the recession hit IT industry. With most IT companies on a cost cutting mode and reduced spending on HR and employee welfare activities, IT companies which had traditionally sponsored Tech-a-Break did not take interest. Even though some other companies’ especially property developers and builders around Technopark showed interest in the event, the fest had to be shelved as no big IT Company came come forward to sponsor the event.
Tech-a-Break is the time for about 25,000 techies working in about 175 companies in Technopark to chill out. In 2008, the fest was held during the last week of April.
