Two weeks before the due date of India Electronics Week and IOTshow.in 2020, the news of COVID-19 hitting Kerala (a neighbouring state to Karnataka) got us worried. Then came news of some large trade shows, both Indian and International, postponing their dates. We were in a fix — should we call off the show too? Even if we didn’t call it off, would the show have any attendees?
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 in Karnataka by 13 Feb, we could organise the twin shows. And we did.
