Enabling Innovation In Electronics & IOT
To do or not to do—that was the question we were faced with 2 weeks before the due date of India Electronics Week and IOTshow.in 2020. News of Corona virus hitting Kerala (neighbouring state of Karnataka) got us worried. Then came news of some large trade shows postponing their dates—both from India and across the globe—and we were in a fix—should we call off the show too?
But, the record breaking number of visitor registrations that we continued to receive during this period—gave us confidence that if things did not turn for the worse, we could organise the twin shows. And, we did.
WHAT A START!
We knew we were truly blessed, when on the first day, despite a Bengaluru bandh (strike) called by the local trade affecting taxi services too, we saw a record foot fall for Day 1 of our events—the highest ever! And, by the end of the show—history was made.
This year, we had a clear goal that we wanted our events to be recognised as conference-led events because that’s where true technical knowledge gets shared. We want the expo to be an important pillar but one supporting the conference—and not the other way around, as it happens in a typical B2B trade show.
Hence, we expanded the basic conference facilities provided at the KTPO Convention Center for the first time since 2018 when we shifted to this venue. We built two extra conference halls taking the total to 4 halls, and created space for 1,000-plus delegates to attend conferences simultaneously. Last year, we had seen some of our speakers and members in audience perspire—so we also deployed additional air conditioners to make the halls more comfortable. We also expanded our workshop halls—both in number and size—resulting in 160 delegates to attend hands-on workshops across 4 halls, in parallel.
The other new initiative was IoT@India Awards—India’s first awards to recognise leading deployments of IoT in India, and those who deployed them. And, for the first edition—it was received with great enthusiasm by the IoT system integrators—both big and small—with number of nominations exceeding 50! For details on how we conceived and executed the process of recognising the winners—refer to ‘IoT@India Awards Explained’.
This year, we also made an attempt to focus on issues like development of technology and IP and the challenges in buying and selling them. Plus, the role academia can play in this, and how the industry can work with academia (as in some other nations) to leverage strengths of both sides. Thankfully, these sessions too saw some great speaker line-up resulting in a high degree of audience at these sessions.
Last but not the least—was a super powerful panel of advisors that we were blessed with—and the secret behind these initiatives. They helped us improve our conference topics, identify the right speakers and invite them, host panel discussions, speak on topics of their expertise, and some of them even took on the role of being members of the jury for IoT@India Awards.
How’re IEW and 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, both 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.
Areas for Improvements
While we received a lot of positive feedback from audiences (some are shared as testimonials), here are few issues for which we received negative feedback for, and we are committed to improve upon, in the next edition:
- Long queues on Day 1 for getting lunch coupons, and having to return for coupons for next days
- Long queues at Lunch Zones resulting in audience having to choose between lunch and their sessions
- Confusion between our Networking Lunch (for premium passes) and Packed Lunch (for other paid passes)
- The similar sounding names of All Technology Pass and its premium avatar All technology Access Pass created confusion amongst some members of the audience
- No workshops included in our highest priced pass ‘All Business Pass’, while those who had bought those thought they could access everything
- Difficulty in figuring out different conference and workshop halls—with them being spread all across the venue
- Badges at Registration Counter not showing the right pass levels for those who had upgraded on 10th or 11th of Feb
Hi, Very Good Morning, Subhodaya, Vanakkam and Namaskara. A very warm welcome to all of you!
It is my privilege to welcome you all to this India Electronics Week and IOT show, which includes many conferences, seminars and workshops.
Here, you will also be able to see and experience some new products and services that are available in the market. I hope you will find it useful.
I feel energised whenever I meet young people like you, and some rare young people like myself – who think that there is so much more that still needs to be done.
Most of my colleagues with whom I studied have retired, but some are still studying and learning new things. I am one of those fortunate persons. Henry Ford once said, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.” It means, there is no age for learning. We must keep learning at every stage of life.
Socrates, the philosopher, said, “The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.” He meant, what any learned person knows is very little compared to what he does not know.
All learned persons know this fact, and therefore they call themselves students of the subjects they are studying, and not experts! Albert Einstein said, “Once you stop learning, you start dying.” These are very strong words, but absolutely true! You can find many examples of this among the people you know. And here’s my favourite, from Jim Rohn, who said, “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune!” Jim Rohn was an entrepreneur, author and a motivational speaker who lived in America from 1930 to 2009. Many of his speeches are available on YouTube and Instagram. There are many such sayings from our visionaries. Every year EFY publishes desk calendars with motivational quotes on a subject. This year’s desk calendar emphasises on learning.
Technology is changing our world at a very fast pace. It is not easy to keep up with the latest, unless you are prepared to spend a good amount of time for it. Even nations can lag behind, if they don’t keep up-to-date with the latest developments. Fortunately, when we miss a bus, another one comes along! As a nation, we have missed many opportunities, many buses, in the past. We could have been leaders in, for instance, solar cells and panels, or deployment of 5G, or production of electric vehicles. These are just a few things that come to mind, but we have missed many more opportunities – the greatest of which could perhaps be manufacturing, as an alternate to China for global sourcing.
But like they say in Hindi, “Der aaye drust aaye!” Or in English we say, ”Better late than never!” That is why I like central government’s Budget proposals for the next financial year, which were submitted by our finance minister in Parliament on 1st February.
The Budget has given great importance to emerging technologies this time. To quote the Finance Minister from the Budget:
Quotes start: “The new economy is based on innovations that disrupt established business models. Artificial intelligence (AI), Internet-of-Things (IoT), 3D printing, drones, DNA data storage, quantum computing, etc are re-writing the world economic order.” The quotes end. The Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman proposed further measures by the government to take advantage of these new technologies. She asserted that Analytics, Fintech and IoT are changing the way we deal with our lives. Therefore, she proposed to soon bring out a policy to enable private sector in building Data Centre Parks throughout the country, thus enabling firms to skilfully incorporate data in every step of their value chains.
She also proposed to link one-lakh gram panchayats this year with Fibre to the Home (FTTH) connections through BharatNet. This will fulfil the vision of providing digital connectivity to all ‘public institutions’ like Anganwadis, health and wellness centres, government schools, at gram panchayat level. It proposed to provide `6,000 crore to BharatNet programme in 2020-21.
Proposal for quantum technology
The FM also noted that quantum technology is opening up new frontiers in computing, communications, cyber security with wide-spread applications. She said, “This is the next frontier of science and technology. It will make all classical technology of today obsolete. There is already a saturation in classical devices, and based on Moore’s Law, this is the next twenty years. And we have to be in the game.” She pointed out that a lot of commercial applications are expected to emerge from theoretical constructs developing in this area. Thus, the Minister proposed to provide an outlay of `8,000 crore over a period of five years for the National Mission on Quantum Technologies and Applications to push domestic research. She further said that India needs to boost domestic manufacturing and attract large investments in the electronics value chain. She proposed a scheme to encourage manufacture of mobile phones, electronic equipment and semiconductor packaging.
Here, I would once again like to quote Henry Ford, who said, “Vision without execution is just hallucination.”
I hope we won’t miss the bus this time and become a laughing stock. The world is looking towards India with great expectation, and we owe it to the world to make some meaningful contribution. The Budget offers us a great opportunity. Let us see how best we can make use of it to make our own contribution.
I hope you will be able to make a good use of the conferences and seminars that are being organised here.
Last but not the least, I want to thank all those people who have helped us reach so far – cheering us all the way! Having started in 1969, we have completed 51 years already. This has been possible because of the tremendous support we got from the industry, its various associations and the academia, who have appreciated our work and encouraged us all along.
I would also like to thank sponsors and partners of this show, without whose support it would not have been possible to organise this event. My special thanks to the speakers, who are willingly passing on their knowledge to the others.
There can be no greater gift than knowledge!
Thanks for your time!

Panel of Advisors
As part of IoTShow.in’s mission to help businesses Profit from IoT, we aspired to build an initiative that can help bring the limelight to those who have been successful themselves in profiting from IoT in today’s environment. In doing so, we also hoped that it will be a catalyst to accelerate the real-world deployment of IoT solutions in India.
Being the first edition of IoT@India Awards, we started building this event from scratch. As we began our analysis, we immediately saw that there are a lot of awards in the market — did we need another one?
To answer this question, we analysed the existing award shows happening and saw that they mostly revolved around startups, technology providers and innovators.
We figured that we ought to look at a category that should look at the aspect closer to the end goal of profiting from IoT — successful deployments of IoT.
We started the journey to create these awards by settling on a balanced model using jurors from different backgrounds and improved it by making it independent of large sponsors. We then put together a nomination fee to fund the infrastructure and made the nomination form public.
We saw a lot of interest when we started the nominations, including those about the nomination fee’s RoI for nominees and the formality to get an assured win at the awards.
We didn’t want to do anything that impacted the legacy of our editorial process, so we proceeded with a neutral jury process. We also wanted to make sure that the smaller players also get a chance to win, and therefore instituted regional awards as well.
Our editorial and research teams drove the campaign to ensure the right people applied for nominations, and we eventually had 50 nominations after excluding nominations that did not fit the criteria. Exclusions included those where the customer was not specified, were just a PoC, where the deployment had not been implemented or those that had a lot of grey areas. Our jury members were extremely helpful in sorting through all these nominations, and identifying the winners for each category at the regional as well as national levels.
The categories for nominations were:
• Customised product solution
• Industrial IoT
• Logistics & Asset Management
• Resource Management & Conservation
• Disaster Management
• Smart Automobiles
• Smart Buildings
• Smart Cities
The ceremony of IoT@India Awards was held at IOTShow.in 2020, and saw a lot of joy and satisfaction as winners had their years of smart work and persistence recognised.
Overall, we have just scratched the surface of what’s possible. While we have gotten many things right, we also fully understand that there are many avenues of improvement. Our team would love to hear about how we can improve this even further.
