The Expo this year is set to welcome more than 200+ startups and tech communities, who will showcase their latest products and services to the crowd. Speaking of the crowd, there’s supposed to be more than 10,000 visitors too.
Along with the Expo, the day will also see BizStart- a series of special tech-focused workshops delivered by experts. What’s in it for you in all this jumble? Well, you as participants will be given opportunities to listen to leading individuals of the industry. Google’s suite of online marketing (including Google Analytics and Google Ads) will also be discussed on this subject matter.
There’s also be a dedicated stall for something called “Google My Business”. You can list your startup in the Google Business Directory. Once listed, there’s chances of your pages popping up in the front page of google, meaning it revamps your SEO status too.
