How’re IEW, SmartBharat & IOTshow Different?

Lot of events are held in the electronics and IOT space in India. At EFY, we are fans of the ‘Blue Ocean’ thinking, and thus like to shape our properties to be different from existing players, and complement rather than compete. It’s also easier for us—given that our publications and websites target a rather unique audience segment—the techies (aka tech decision makers).

Thus, SmartBharat, IEW and IOTshow are designed as event for the Creators and Implementers of technologies—and these typically tend to be techies. Thus, our conferences, workshops and exhibits tend to be geeky in nature. We do discuss non-technical topics too—like best practices in B2B marketing or role of women in tech, but these are the exceptions that prove the rule.
