CAN Federation is going to organize CAN InfoTech 2020 from February 14-19. It is the 26th edition of the expo. To book, follow the link http://caninfotech.info/
CAN started organizing the technology exhibition & fair since the early 90s. It was the only of its kind expo in Nepal until a decade ago. It was the only place where people could visit to witness the latest technological developments. It was a very useful event until internet became easily accessible for all and new information about technology started to be available online. This was not the only reason that lessened public’s attraction to CAN InfoTech. The value of CAN InfoTech started to degrade when it turned into a marketplace for Pendrive, printer, antivirus, UPS, inverter, etc. sellers.
Currently, there seems to be a huge gap between CAN Federation and tech-startups and innovators in Nepal.
I have got messages from some young and innovative entrepreneurs (E4N members) with suggestions like CAN InfoTech should open few stalls for innovative companies with lesser price, so that CAN will become more futuristic in terms of local technology.
Allowing innovative startups to exhibit at CAN InfoTech at a discounted rate or free-of-charge would definitely make the event worth visiting. At the same time, it will help these young and innovative companies to reach a wider audience and get benefits. CAN InfoTech is probably the biggest expo in Nepal, where they get around 5 lakh visitors in just 6 days.
So, what are your suggestions for the CAN InfoTech organizing team? Please feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions.
All of your suggestions will be forwarded to the CAN InfoTech organizing team.

Public Thoughts on CAN InfoTech 2020:

क्यान महासंघ को CAN Info-tech 2020 online stalls booking सिस्टम नि राम्रो संग हेरियो। १० बजे र केहि समय पछि खुले को सिस्टम मा सबै required field हरु fillup गरे र available stalls choose गरि बैंक deposit स्लिप नि upload गरे र online बुक गर्दा नि, हामी ले choose गरे को stalls न पाउने कस्तो online सिस्टम हो? online सिस्टम मा त जो 1st मा बुक गर्छ तेस्ले पाउने होइन र?
online सिस्टम मा जाने भय पछि नि सबै स्टल बुक manual र आफ्नो मान्छे लाइ मात्र दिने भय यो online booking भने र किन भन्ने।
before CAN election vote को लागि १० चोटी फोन गर्ने team का साथी हरु अहिले हाम्रो फोन receive गर्नु हुन्न्न।
येस्तै रे छ हाम्रो सिस्टम।
अब यो पाली CAN infotech २०२० मा न जाने भईयो, अर्को पाली सिस्टम अनुसार भय मा जान मिल्ला।

As I recall 6-7 years back, CAN InfoTech was more like a PC and Internet provider’s exhibition show. Is it still relevant?

Being an active visitor for years as well as participants, I feel like this event needs a good thought from the organizing team. The stall cost is too high, it’s more of a business platform than an information platform. If possible, new innovations and startups should be given some stalls, and not in the corner outside the hall, but rather in a prime spot. Also, they should filter out the so-called offers provided by the exhibitors.

I am hopeful by this post that CAN InfoTech2020 will be different than the previous ones. Supporting startup companies and ideas will definitely contribute to the economy of the country and its GDP.
