Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the goal of the expo?
A. The goal of Electronics For You Expo is to accelerate the growth of electronics industry in India and create a platform where global electronics can meet India.
Q. How do we plan to achieve that goal?
A. Unlike other expositions, which focus only on 'components' and 'manufacturing equipment', EFY Expo will try to focus on the complete eco-system. We believe that there are at-least 4 key stages in the entire eco-system, which include: (1) Innovation (new technology), (2) Product Design, (3) Manufacturing and (4) Product sales, and we will be focusing all these 4 aspects.
Q. Who is the target audience i.e. visitors being targeted for this show?
A. Based on the 4 stages of eco-system, which we have identified, our target audience is going to be:
1) Innovators: Involved in innovation/R&D of new technologies and products
2) Engineers: Involved in 'Design' or 'Implementation' of electronics products
3) Manufacturers: Involved in manufacturing of electronics products
4) B2B buyers: Involved in trade or purchase of electronics components, products or machinery
Q. The last segment of 'B2B Buyers' seems to be very large. Can you share some more light on it?
A. Yes, this is one of the largest segment of visitors. It contains the following sub-segments:
(i) Institutional buyers representing large corporate, PSUs and government agencies. They are there to identify new vendors for their purchase and reconnect with existing and old vendors.
(ii) Trade channel partners comprising distributors, dealers and resellers. They visit the show to identify new business opportunities, and seek representative of international and Indian brands for their respective geographic territories.
(iii) The academia. Both faculty and management representatives of leading tech institutions visit the show to (a) uncover latest tech and industry trends and (b) to connect with tech solutions providers, who have specialised solutions for academia.
