  The second edition of the Indian Gadget Expo (IGE) will be held here in September this year. To be organised by Skits Events with the support of the Telangana government from September 18 to 21, it will serve as a platform to showcase innovative gadgets and technologies. Making the announcement here on Thursday, Telangana's Information Technology Minister K. Tarakarama Rao said the government would promote IGE as it was the only event of its nature to be organised in Asia. The event will bring together technology providers, gadget manufacturers, technology innovators, bureaucrats, government officials, entrepreneurs and startups. More than 300 manufacturers from 12 countries including Israel, China, Korea, Taiwan and Japan will showcase around 1,000 gadgets. The minister foresees immense potential to transform the event into a global platform attracting the biggest brands and area experts.

Sanjeev Kumar, CEO of Skits Events, said they were aiming to create a platform for the consumers to not only get a first-hand experience of the latest gadgets available in the global markets, but also get a glimpse of the gen-next technology.   IANS
