The first Interop show at Mumbai happened from Oct 7 to 9. We had a booth there representing Zoho and ManageEngine. For a show’s first edition, all the arrangements were real good. The show had a good number of exhibitors and there were a lot of sessions going on simultaneously. We were a little apprehensive of the traffic that the show might attract but we were happy when we started having a lot of visitors to our booth from day one. The traffic continued on days two and three as well.
It was my first tradeshow/conference representing Zoho and my business card had my designation as Market Analyst / Blogger. The blogger tag was a bit intriguing to many and it acted as a good conversation starter 🙂
Cloud computing and SAAS were a big draw. Infrastructure Management Services (IMS) aka RIM also invoked good interest. A lot of our visitors knew Zoho, ManageEngine or our former name AdventNet. We got good feedback from our Indian users on many of our products/services. Other than the photos above, I posted a few photos of the other exhibitors’ stalls in my twitpic account. Overall, it was a good show to remember and makes me look forward to the next edition.
