Computerworld India has compiled a list of some of the most exciting technology events of interest to IT executives in India. 

Measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 mean many of these conferences and events are now online only—but in some ways that has only made them more accessible to busy workers without the time to travel.

The situation is likely to evolve during the course of the year, though, so we recommend that you bookmark this page, check back here regularly for updates—and double-check with the organisers of any in-person event before you make travel arrangements.
