INFOTEL is back

The National ICT Exhibition will be held on November 3rd to 5th  2023 after 3 years in support  of Digital Economy of Sri Lanka

Federation of Information Technology Industry Sri Lanka (FITIS) is thrilled to announce that INFOTEL2023 will take place from 3rd  to 5th November 2023 at the BMICH, after three years.

INFOTEL was launched in 1992 by the current President, His Excellency Ranil Wickremesinghe, as an initiative  to develop the ICT Industry in Sri Lanka. Today, INFOTEL has become  the premier  national ICT expo in the country bringing together new technology and solutions for Public and Private Sector as well as the general public.

INFOTEL was held for last 2 decades continuously  till 2019. However, for the last 3 years INFOTEL was not conducted due to the pandemic and the unstable situation of the country. Thus, this year becomes a significant landmark for INFOTEL, as it is re-launched by FITIS with an effort to bridge the  technological gaps in the past three years.

INFOTEL2023 will focus on key areas of Digital Economy, in support of the Government’s effort to introduce ICT Technology to develop the economy of Sri Lanka. INFOTEL will cover areas such as

Digital Government, Smart Education, Smart Health Solutions, Cyber Security, Agritech, Artificial Intelligence, Smart Cities, Green Energy  and a lot more. It will also provide the general public an experience in the use of new devices. FITIS encourages the participation of Tech Startups, showcasing their solutions. The public will also have a novel experience in engaging in e-sports competitions.

The Chairman – INFOTEL Organizing Committee, Mr. Gnanam Sellathurrai, a veteran ICT industrialist,  told “I am so happy to organize   INFOTEL  exhibition this year as I strongly believe it is a timely requirement to have this exhibition”. He also added the “as for the last three years, Sri Lanka’s IT Industry faced many challenges in securing the revenues, launching new products, maintaining the existence of  technology standards amidst the  declining consumer buying power”. He continued by saying that “the high  inflation of the country has slowed down the sales revenues by more than 50%. Although this situation has improved due to the reduction in the inflation rate,  still there is no significant improvement  in the consumer buying power. At this moment we want to showcase the new technology with extraordinary experience to general public. We invite everyone to witness this pioneer IT Exhibition of the country.”

FITIS Chairman Indika De Zoysa added his comments to this key event stating that “ in the current context, technological enablement in Sri Lanka is  low when compared regionally and globally. We need to adopt ICT technological Solutions  to develop digital economy. To achieve this,  both Public and Private Sector need to work together. The Government is focusing its effort on  thrust areas such as, improvement and expansion of  connectivity and access, developing infrastructure, implementing security for systems and solutions, meeting the challenges skills  to support Digital Economy, encouraging paperless and cashless transactions, etc. Such an effort will introduce more digital services, in developing the country’s digital economy. It is the responsibility of the Private Sector  to support this effort as it has a direct impact on Sri Lanka’s ICT Industry”.

INFOTEL2023 will introduce  new technology that can implement ICT solutions in many areas that will benefit the general public. Government’s plans for “Digital Government”, will transform many of the current  services offered by various government organizations into digital services enabling the citizens to reap the benefit of digitalization.

FITIS invite you to take part in this National ICT Expo to experience the difference.
