Devgate Experience at ITCN-Asia:

Making a strong; impression is crucial at such events. Since there were so many booths from competing businesses, we needed to stand out in the exhibition hall. It had to be done by designing an inventive booth, holding engaging demos, or using persuasive marketing materials. So before the event, the DevGate team organized everything to ensure that we made the most of our time at ITCN Asia. It included designing and building an eye-catching booth that showcased our products and services, preparing marketing materials like brochures and booklets, and training staff members to engage with attendees and answer questions.

There were seminars, workshops, and other learning opportunities that covered a wide range of IT topics alongside exhibitors. These sessions were a valuable source of information for us, helping us stay up-to-date on the latest trends and technologies.

Highlights of The Event:

One of the major highlights of the event was meeting other industry professionals. We got along with other IT teams from different cities to exchange ideas and practical knowledge. We were able to know what other businesses are working in the market. We also identified gaps that we can work on later on. We also had the opportunity to view their portfolios, asked for demos of their products, and learned about the most recent trends and advancements in the IT sector.

There were seminars, workshops, and other learning opportunities that covered a wide range of IT topics alongside exhibitors. These sessions were a valuable source of information for us, helping us stay up-to-date on the latest trends and technologies.


Despite the long hours, and hard work, our team left ITCN Asia feeling energized and inspired. We made connections with future clients, learned insightful things, and got the chance to present our ideas to a large audience. It was a wonderful experience for us to exhibit at ITCN Asia, and we look forward to participating in more such events in the future.
