Asia's Largest Technology Event, Bengaluru Tech Summit (BTS) organized by the Department of Electronics, IT, Bt and S&T, Government of Karnataka and Co-Hosted by STPI is back in a hybrid avatar this November 17 to 19, 2021.

The swift spread of Covid -19 came as a heavy blow to the global economy, causing unprecedented disruptions across industries. But with disruption, we are also witnessing a massive digital transformation across society, globally. Technology has emerged as a saviour-be it in fighting the virus, in resurrecting the crippling industries or in bringing together people in these challenging times.

During this time, Bengaluru has truly kept the world moving and emerged as the next Headquarter to the Global MNCs driving their businesses across continents. BTS 2021 with its central theme "Driving the Next" will witness the coming together of global tech leaders, Indian corporate and startups from IT, Deep tech and Biotech deciphering the future, showcasing disruptive technologies, forging partnerships and alliances.

BTS 2021, in its 24th edition, will give global audiences access to the best innovations, new products and cutting-edge ideas for building a collaborative, global tech community.
