*1 Conferences, Seminars, Trainings and Workshops around IT Technologies today are highly expensive and IT professionals find it expensive to get the sponsorship from their training/L&D organizations . Only 1-2% of the large IT force in the country of 60-70 Lakh IT professionals attend conferences and others are not able to connect with speakers/experts/good trainers. Today an average conference cost 10-12k and if a person has to attend an average of say 4 conferences in a two year window, he or she has to shell out close to 50L or even more from his pocket . No Training department in the IT organizations could bear such a cost
*2 Business Development through Sponsorship was an expensive affair for start ups, Mid sized IT companies. To promote their organization, currently companies put stalls/exhibitions booth which cost couple of lacs or more and if a companies had to regularly do business traction say in 4 conferences or trainings, they had to shell close to 10-12 lacs or even more in a two year window.
