INFOCOM CALCUTTA 2022

INTRODUCTION

INFOCOM is ABP Group’s Business-Technology-Leadership Events division that hosts world class conferences, exhibitions, workshops, roundtables and awards across the year across various States in India and also in international locations like Bangladesh and other SAARC countries.

INFOCOM was initiated as the group’s premier flagship event in 2002 and now after 20 years, INFOCOM hosts a series of these B2B events for technology leaders, functional professionals, industry specialists, entrepreneurs and strategists in various formats.

Our events stand on the three unique pillars of Business, Technology and Leadership which is the magical combo for driving sustainable growth and success in changing times.

The annual flagship event, INFOCOM Calcutta comprises a three-day Conference and hosts one of the largest congregations of technology professionals, buyers-sellers, corporate leaders, academics, visionaries, and policymakers from India and beyond.

Theme: The Age of Change Makers

We are in an extraordinary time. Over the last two years of uncertainty, businesses had to respond almost instantaneously — shifting employees to remote work, repairing broken supply chains, and keeping pace with dramatically fluctuating customer demand. Business leaders were forced to adapt to a confluence of multiple disruptions inextricably linked to a longer-term, ongoing digital disruption and innovation.

Given the present background of the world, we have chosen the theme for our event for this year as "The Age of Change Makers" where we would bring the spotlight on the leaders, products and solutions breaking new grounds, challenging the status quo, and soaring to new heights in an uncertain and unchartered territory.
