BASIS SoftExpo, the biggest exhibition in country's information technology industries, will begin at Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC) in the capital on February 1.

Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS) is organising the show for eleventh time, with this year's slogan "Future in Motion".

A press briefing was held at its office on Saturday marking the exhibition with BASIS president Mustafa Jabbar in the chair, reports BSS.

Jatiya Sangsad Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury is expected to inaugurate the four-day show.

The BASIS president said BASIS SoftExpo is the most effective place for expanding businesses of country's IT companies.

"We could not organise this event separately after 2012. From now on, it will be held on every year and I hope this year's event will be a grand success," Jabbar said.

Organisers said like earlier occasions, this year's exhibition will showcase the capacity of country's software and IT industries, its successes, and will hold many seminars and workshops regarding the sector.

The organizers are hoping around half a million people will attend the four-day extravaganza.

"We will divide the show area in four sections- business software zone, ITES and BPO zone, mobile innovation zone and e-commerce zone," said BASIS Director Syed Almas Kabir.

A total of 57 stalls, 36 mini pavilions and 16 pavilions will be raised and at least 20 seminars will be held in the show, said Kabir.

More than 10 technical sessions will be held regarding different aspects of information technology, he added.
