Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB) has setup a Pakistan Pavilion for the second year in a row at Mobile World Congress with five IT companies from Pakistan. The pavilion has been setup inside AppsPlanet hall which gets a lot of traffic related to mobile applications.
The five exhibitors with PSEB include Evamp, SecureTech, Versacom, VectorDynamix, and DPL. These exhibitors displayed marketing material about their applications and networked with exhibitors in more than thousand stalls at the event which is the largest telecom event of the year.
Secretary IT, Mr. Azmat Ali Ranjha and Chairman PTA, Dr. Ismail Shah, also visited Pakistan Pavilion. They were greeted by MD PSEB, Mr. Asim Shahryar Husain and the exhibitors. The secretary highlighted PSEB’s efforts in this large event with IT companies for the second year in a row and mentioned that participation in such events is important to create awareness about Pakistan’s IT industry and to increase IT exports. He hoped that Pakistan’s participation in this event will improve every year as more and more IT companies participate from Pakistan and the size of the pavilion increases every year to reflect the true potential of Pakistan’s IT industry. PSEB also played a documentary at the pavilion which it has produced on the IT industry of Pakistan as well as distributed brochures and USBs to foreign visitors to the pavilion.
Many countries setup pavilions at Mobile World Congress to showcase products and expertise of their IT companies. The event will run for four days and is expected to generate new foreign leads and business for Pakistani IT companies.
