More than 400 internet, science and technology firms will take part in the 22nd International Exhibition of Electronics, Computers and e-Commerce (Elecomp 22) to start from December 15 to 18 at Tehran’s Permanent Fair Grounds near Estaghlal Hotel.

In a press conference on December 10 the head of Iran’s ICT Guilds, Nasser Ali Saadat, said this year there is “more interest in the exhibition from both local and foreign firms.”

Chinese electronics firms will have their own special pavilion. A large contingent is coming from India and Europe.

Last year Saadat had said he expects to see 500 companies at this year’s event. But according to the website of the Tehran Permanent International Fairground, the number of companies that are present this week is less than the 2015 event.

Financial Tribune reported that last year 420 exhibitors attended. This year a tally on the official website indicates 408 exhibitors in total.

Baqer Bahri, a member of the organizing committee of the event said in November that at the four-day event companies are designated according to their products and services, which is a key feature of this year’s event.

 Research and Technological Achievements Expo

Another event at the expo center is the 18th National Exhibition of Technological and Research Achievements of Iran, organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology, a press release said.

As part of the Rouhani administration’s plans, research in non-oil and gas-related sectors is crucial for the nation if it is to wean itself from over-reliance on traditional exports like oil, gas and petrochemicals.

At this exhibition, stands include equipment and systems for scientific progress, multimedia development, laboratory research, robotics, sports science, electronic engineering and locally developed software.

The exhibition is being held in cooperation with Germany’s Didacta, one of the world’s largest trade fairs for teachers and academia.
