Conferences/Seminars and Workshops around IT Technologies today are highly expensive and employees find getting sponsored by their organizations becomes a herculean task. To attend say an average of 4 conferences in a year costs an employee or his company around 70-80,000 INR) keeping per conference cost as close to Rs 20,000 INR ( inclusive of all taxes). The main cost contributor is the 4/5 Star Hotels which were the venue sites for many conferences and hence representation across roles/levels were poor and only select few participated and presented.
All IT/ CXO/CIO/COO s of Pune/Delhi-NCR/Bangalore/Mumbai/Chennai wanted to create a cost effective viable solution to this problem. It was then decided to provide all the IT Commune members atleast 4 conferences/workshops/seminars ons around emerging trends in IT/ Software Testing by making IT employees an annual member with only a nominal annual subscription fee of Rs 3000 per year.
This means the conferences will be held in auditoriums of Software Companies, Management/Engineering colleges where more conferences/seminars and workshops with more frequency(4 in a year) in a year at less than one-tenth of annual market spend.
