Kolkata based Compass (Computer Association of Eastern India) is all set to organize its eastern region’s largest annual IT fair – COMPASS 14-15 from February 13 to 16 at the Netaji Indoor Stadium & Khudiram Anushilan Kendra, Kolkata. To generate more footfalls, the association has shifted the venue to the Netaji Indoor Stadium from Milan Mela Grounds in Kolkata.

 The Tech Fair

 Some of the highlights of COMPASS 14-15 Tech Fair are:

WORLD-CLASS SEMINAR: COMPASS 14-15 Tech Fair will organize a world-class seminar on “Internet of Things” (IOT) and “Cyber Security” with the support of CeBIT India at The Taj Bengal hotel on February 16, 2015.

The IOT would generate big data that would have to be analyzed and stored securely across various domains. Thus the question of Cyber Security becomes very important which the seminar would address.

INTER-COLLEGE IT QUIZ: COMPASS would organize an Inter-College IT Quiz in which avid quizzers from 60 plus leading colleges would participate.

GAMING COMPETITION: The popular action-packed Man vs Machine competition is expected to attract 2000-plus gamers and techno-hobbyists from across India.

WORKSHOPS: COMPASS 14-15 Tech Fair would hold workshops on Social Marketing, Online Security, Digital Art, Photography and on other topics. The idea is to familiarize the visitors with the mechanisms and impart knowledge about the gadgets and IT trends that rule our lives.
