VISITOR PROFILE BY BUSINESS:

Of the total footfalls, the total numbers comprised of over 99.89 % trade visitors, once again reinforcing its popularity and importance as a major Trade event.

This year too, the organizers concentrated their promotion only to the trade, using the postal address, email & mobile number databases of the SATELLITE & CABLE TV magazine. The databases having been refined and regulated over the years offered an excellent direct market reach, providing information to cable operators, MSOs, and dealers, manufacturers & importers of CATV equipment across the country.

A larger number of Digital MSOs from Phase-3 and Phase-4 areas of DAS were present, along with many LCOs from these two phases.

Note: The figures may not be in keeping with the number of visitors indicated in other tables since many Trade visitors hold / perform multiple functions. For eg. An importer may also be a Distributor; or a manufacturer may also be a retailer, etc..
