Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) will be the National Partner of Sri Lanka’s flagship ICT Expo INFOTEL 2015.
The exhibition will be held from November 20 to 22 at the BMICH under the theme of ‘‘Connecting Citizens’’.
The key objective of this year’s exhibition is to showcase the latest ICT and digital innovations, harnessing the best ICT solutions to empower the future growth via multiple career guidance events on an ICT platform.
ICTA, the apex ICT institution of the Government, has been mandated to take all necessary measures to implement the Government’s Policy and Action Plan in relation to ICT industry. ICTA is required to assist the Cabinet of Ministers in the formulation of the National Policy on ICT and provide all information necessary for its formulation. ICTA, which is wholly owned by the Government of Sri Lanka, implemented the e-Sri Lanka Development Project under which significant progress has been made.
FITIS Chairman Chinthaka Wijewickrama said the salient feature of this year’s event is the incorporation of many progressive features. They are a unique addition to the selection on offer.
“A noteworthy feature is the demarcation of a special Shopping Area, where ICT products and services will be on sale at reasonable prices and with a comprehensive warranty for the benefit of visitors to the INFOTEL–2015Exhibition. “Visitors to this event can see for themselves and personally experience the newest, state-of-the-art technology in relation to computer software and hardware, Big Data, Mobile Computing, Cloud Computing, Digital Signature and Computing Gaming.
“INFOTEL–2015is the only key platform in Sri Lanka which brings together under one roof Chief Executives, eminent professionals and decision-makers in the ICT sphere, apart from entrepreneurs, educationists, students from schools and universities and people from all walks of life. It will be more focused towards the country’s national growth and increasing IT literacy”.
“As the biggest ICT-related happening, this event draws lakhs of visitors every year. It is the biggest show in the ICT sector. At INFOTEL–2015, there will be over 300 exhibition and trade stalls.
