InfoConnect 2013 – Kuwait, a low key affair
Visited InfoConnect 2013 exhibition at the Mishrif International Fairground to see if things’re different from previous years, was not disappointed as indeed it was. But this change was for the worse as this time around as InfoConnect turned out to be a very low key affair. The same was the story with InfoBiz as well.
Overall there are fewer than a dozen exhibitors only. They are primarily the ISPs, telcos (minus Zain), and a couple of big vendors like Xcite, Electrozan and Samsung. None of the Hawally businesses are in attendance, some may like it, but those small vendors have always added life to the event.
I guess overall the market conditions are against spending so majority of last years exhibitors have stayed away. One big change from last year is that, last year it was Wataniya Telecom which made its presence felt, this time its VIVA Telecom.
InfoConnect 2013 will be on till 2nd Feb. If you are planning to get a DSL connection or a new phone line pass by.
Here are some pics from the event:
