Numbers of participating companies were up by 28% and the footfalls were up by over 9% compared to last year’s show!

The compilation of statistics of the show has once again proven that this is the event that the industry attends!


All major MSOs thousands of LCOs, from all over the country, attended the show, once again re-emphasising the fact that this is the most popular destination, for both, exhibiting companies as well as visitors, by once again establishing its record of being the largest Tradeshow for the industry in all ofSouth Asia.

Visitor Profile by Business:

Of the total footfalls, the total numbers comprised of over 99.8% trade visitors, once again reinforcing its popularity and importance as a major Trade event.

This year also, the organizers decided to concentrate 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.

The show witnessed substantial footfalls of trade visitors from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh & Nepal, including a few from Bhutan.

A larger number of 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..n
