A. This event (Electronics Rocks) aims to create an exciting platform for Electronics Design Engineers. Over 50 speakers that include industry thought leaders and stalwarts, will speak about amazing cutting-edge trends in technology, and on how they solved the challenges that they faced while implementing completely new projects on the Internet of Things.

Our aim is to help engineers reduce design time and complexity by using cutting edge design ideas, electronics design tools and solutions.

We also aim to help futurists and makers get started with inter-disciplinary tinkering in electronics, as well as creating a platform for them to showcase commercial Indian designs.

Q. Why should my firm be an exhibitor or a sponsor of this event?

A. Since the main target audience of this event are electronics design engineers, only those organisations and brands who wants to engage with this unique audience segment should come in as an exhibitor or a sponsor. Some of the reasons for participation can be: :

1. Want to promote a new technology or a product segment amongst the electronics design engineering community

2. Want to demonstrate a new product or application amongst this community

3. Want to strengthen one's brand as the employer of choice amongst this community

4. Want to interact with this community and get feedback on certain products or initiatives

5. Want to demonstrate innovative projects or applications plausible using your products or solutions


Q. What is going to be EFY’s strategy to ensure that the content of the conference is going to be relevant?

A. At EFY, we follow a simple principle when it comes to selecting content for events — customers prefer listening to experiences and best practices of other customers rather than vendors. Hence, the majority of our speakers are from the Design Community itself. Plus, we work closely with our sponsors to ensure that their speakers also present a generic picture. Lastly, we ensure that full transparency is maintained with attendees so that they can make informed decisions when it comes to selecting sessions and speakers they intend to listen to.


Q. What are the types of opportunities for organisations or brands to engage with the Electronics Design Engineer Community?

A. While customised solutions can be developed depending on the marketing needs, the following standard options exist for:

* Sponsorships

* Exhibitor booths for brands & organisations

* Exhibitor booths for recruiters

* Demo tables for Innovators

* Surveys/Database Collection

* Distribution of marketing collateral or give-aways

* Dedicated seminars or workshops by brands

* Product Launch / Demo Sessions by brands

Please get in touch with us at dilin.anand@efyindia.com for more sponsorship details

A. We have a flat 50% discount for academicians, because we believe that when we update one academician, we in turn update hundreds of students who are taught by the academician. Plus, if the academicians come in a group, then they can benefit from the Bulk Booking discounts too. We have NO special discounts for students.


Q. Is this event useful for students?

Yes and no. This event is useful for only those students who have a high interest in electronics, and want to pursue their career in this fast growing field.
