EFY Group was founded in 1969 at IIT Madras. Our main technology convention, EFY Conferences (EFYCON), started as a tiny 900-footfall community conference in 2012, going by the name of Electronics Rocks. Within four years it grew into India’s largest, most exciting engineering conference and was awarded as the Most Important IoT Global Event in 2016 by Postscapes. More than 10,000 excited people (techies, design engineers, developers, entrepreneurs, investors) flew in to be part of this event at EFY Conferences in 2016.
In 2017, thousands more joined our community as we built the next revolutionary platform for technologists. No longer a singular conference, over 11 independent conferences were developed and co-located to build a multidisciplinary mega-convention at B.I.E.C (India’s first “LEED – Certified” Green Exhibition & Conference Facility) in Bengaluru, India. Each conference had its own stage, schedule, exhibitors, workshops, networking opportunities and lots more!
Conferences included those on cyber security, analytics, algorithms, AI, smart cities, Industrial IoT, smart cars, smart medical electronics and tele-health, rapid prototyping and much more!
At EFYCON, you can learn about every major industry touched by technology. You can reach, connect and network with influential technologists, technology decision makers, eminent thought leaders, the most disruptive companies, while meeting your customers (and even competitors!).
EFYCON is just the start of a far larger vision for the ElectronicsForU.com team, in our pursuit to build a powerful platform that can catapult technologists to success.
