To outline plans for the 25th International Exhibition of Electronics, Computers and e-Commerce (Elecomp 2019), Iran IT Organization and the ICT Guild Organization held a conference in Tehran on Saturday.
Domestic and foreign tech firms and startups will unveil their latest products and services at the exhibition scheduled for July 18-21 at Tehran’s International Fairground.
During the conference, ITO chief Amir Nazemi said, “To curb paper consumption, businesses have been encouraged to shift to digital outlets instead of printing brochures for Elecomp 2019, while government entities have been barred from using paper handouts.”
Mohammad Baqer Asna-Ashari, the guild’s chief, was also present at the news conference. He explained that this round of the event will include a section titled Elecomp Jobs, which is hoped to address one of the tough challenges facing tech-savvy youngsters—finding a job related to their skills.
"Elecomp Jobs will link startups and ICT companies to talented and skilled people," he said.
The event comprises several sections, namely "Elecomp Trends" which will bring together entities active in the specialized fields of artificial intelligence, blockchain, Internet of Things, big data and cloud services. Firms active in such sectors can offer products and let participants track their progress.
The number of halls allocated to startups has grown from last year’s four to six this year.
"With the number of technology firms and startups growing rapidly, a bigger space will help promote them," he said.
Some 320 tech firms, 430 startups and 45 game and app developers participated in Elecomp last year.
