I had written about the India IT Summit 2009 a few weeks ago. It was held at The Leela Kempinski, Kovalam on December 10 and 11, and I had the occasion of attending it, along with a couple of friends from TDF.
While a detailed update of the two day event will follow shortly (I hope), let me waste no more time in introducing the latest initiative of TDF in our constant drive to promote Trivandrum,
(Yes, the acronym is IT and that's no accident!!)
Since the audience at the Summit would include a large number of CXOs of IT/ITES firms while the speaker list included some of the Whos-Who of the industry, including the leadership of Infosys, IBM, TCS, Cisco, Wipro, Microsoft, British Airways, IIT Chennai and so on, TDF realised this would be as good an opportunity to showcase Trivandrum as an IT/ITES destination as any.
And considering the fact that anyone else was unlikely to do so, we tied up with Technopark to create a concise brochure and video presentation to showcase Trivandrum.
Do take a look at the 8-page Brochure first.
And then see the 6 minute video.
The video ended up being the high-light of the presentations at the Summit, while the brochure was distributed to all the attendees. Members of TDF also got to interact with some of the IT/ITES industry leaders present at the Summit. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
And please do pass on both the brochure and video to all your friends and anyone interested in Trivandrum. Next time, someone asks you about your city, this could be part of your answer!
