Technology helps smooth conduct of investors' meet
Technology ensured that this year’s investment summit at Palace Grounds was managed better than the ones during previous two editions of Global Investors Meet.

Three huge LED screens at the main hall during the inaugural session of the three-day summit helped audience view HD quality visuals behind the dais rather than the grainy images on television panels used during the previous editions.

The five seminar halls also had LED screens flashing presentations by speakers. Acou-stics were also much better this time. Screens were also installed outside seminar halls to provide a teaser.

Delegates were issued passes with bar codes which were scanned at the entrance and at the seminar.

The government also utilised the digitally-enhanced user platform by launching a mobile app ahead of the summit. Officials said around 3,500 people had downloaded the app that provides information on investment opportunities in the State.

For the first time, social media space was also utilised. The Invest Karnataka Twitter handle was launched to provide regular updates.

However, the response was not on expected lines with the handle getting only around 900 followers. The proximity of the venue to the heart of the city also helped ensured access.
