CAN InfoTech

CAN InfoTech | CAN Federation Updates

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. CAN InfoTech 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.

Suggestions: 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.

Official Website:

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 within just 6 days and its like a successful trend every year.

Public Thoughts on CAN InfoTech:

Avinash Gurung writes –

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

Pukar Sthapit writes –

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.

Krishna Gaihre writes –

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.
