Business Bureau,

Compex-2018, organized every year by VCMDWA, and held at St. Ursula School Ground for the first time, concluded on Monday. Although it was a Monday, first working day of the week, yet the footfall was as high and as good as that of the weekend as many people visited the expo to explore products and services of their interest and need.

Compex-2018 was supported and powered by Government of Maharashtra and Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation. Despite the challenges and limitations of the new venue, the response of visitor footfall was simply overwhelming, this year too.

More than 200 participants with the major industry players who participated at Compex-2018 were Samsung, Dell, Lenovo, Canon, Panasonic, Hikvision and many more significant players from the IT domain.
The participants’ feedback was very positive and they have all expressed complete satisfaction on the basis of the huge response received by them.

On the concluding note Rajesh Saboo, President - VCMDWA, said that as Kasturchand Park, the most suited large venue for events of such huge magnitude, is no more available for exhibitions, there is a need and expectation from the Government to create or provide alternate venue like a Convention Centre for such mega biz-info events. Many other similar trade associations also echoed similar sentiments.

Though the organisers matched their standard of Compex in terms of size and participants, space constraint resulted in some regular events like Project Competition, IT Picnic, etc., held last year, to be dropped. There were plans to launch new initiatives and activities in Compex 2018 but even those were dropped as it calls for bigger space from the convenience of participants and visitors.

IT Quiz was an ongoing activity and the questions were published in The Hitavada every day. Many people responded and sent in their answers to the Quiz on a daily basis. All the winners were given prizes on the concluding evening of Compex 2018.

Under the stewardship of Rajesh Saboo, Dinesh Naidu, Secretary - VCMDWA, Vinay Dharmadhikari, Vice President and all other VCMDWA members have worked tirelessly round the clock to stage Compex-2018. Other organizing committee members Prashant Bulbule, Treasure, Ranjit Umathe, Joint Secretary and executive body members - Sanjay Chourasia and Lalit Gandhi have also been at the centre stage of managing the event.Saboo and Naidu thanked all the VCMDWA member, all the participants, visitors, student volunteers of Tirpude College, vendors, besides the two main powering partners - Government of Maharashtra and NMRC for their support.The Hitavada was the media partner while magazine media partner was Click IT News and radio partner Big FM.
