It all began with a single, yet diverse in itself, aim of “Spreading Professionalism”. ACM Student Chapter is one of the most dynamic societies of Punjab University College of Information Technology that has been organizing SOFTEXPO, the biggest national tech exposition of Pakistan, for nearly 6 years now. The aim behind the inception of SOFTEXPO was to provide the young generation of Pakistan, the future, with a platform to give exhibit and model their new and reformed ideas regarding technology and has maintained its tradition of attracting a huge audience year after year. Our tremendous journey started from 2012 and today SOFTEXPO has become a national trademark of excellence in the academic field, domestic market and international community; Pakistan’s biggest showcase in terms of talent, awareness and appreciation of IT geeks all around the nation.
Last year, the biggest ICT exposition of the country, SOFTEXPO’17, proved itself to be a smashing success where more than 20 IT-based universities participated and the participants presented more than 50 development and research projects and 25 MPhil thesis. The event was graced by the Executive Director HEC, Dr. Arshad Ali and Provincial Minister of Higher Education of Punjab, Mr. Syed Raza Ali Gillani as our principal guest.
SOFTEXPO’18, just around the corner, will span over 12th - 13th May, 2018 at Punjab University College of Information Technology (Allama Iqbal Campus). The two-day-long SOFTEXPO, organized in collaboration with the apex body of the software industry and ITES based services, is expecting the participation of over 5000 visitors in the gala ICT event, and is all about discovering new capabilities and potentials. Besides the categorized 7 sub events: Software Exhibition, Graduate Research Symposium, Clash of Coders, Scavenger Hunt, Game Con, The MAD C and Poster Design, SOFTEXPO will be a showcase of prospective projects of IT enabled service companies with discussions, technical sessions and researches relating to the upcoming future breakthroughs.
It is a great pleasure and a tremendous satisfaction to see a thing that you had started, flourishing so rapidly. This legacy is a huge HUGE responsibility to be carried on. And the way the juniors are keeping this legacy alive, is surely a proud moment for me. Today I’m seeing this chapter on the level that I always wanted to see
SoftExpo is THE Exhibition for every techie out there. It's the best platform where students get to present and hone their IT skills simultaneously. Being a part of such an interesting initiative has definitely been one of the most interesting endeavor during my stay at PUCIT. I am confident that every student will be able to learn a lot from this Expo.
From a Local University level competition to a National level platform for IT students all over Pakistan, I was lucky to be a part of Softexpo when it was taking these baby steps in becoming a platform where students can showcase their work in front of the world. Softexpo is a special event for PASC as well as for PUCIT and I wish them all the best to organize this event in the best way possible.
In my four years at PUCIT, I have seen SoftExpo become a monumental national event from a regional competition and worked towards achieving this goal. PUCIT has provided students of IT from every age a stage to display their prowess in different categories of competitions. SoftExpo is the place where Pakistan’s talented community stands united under one roof.
From a one day event with single exhibition to a two day event with six mega events over a span of few years, SoftExpo has make some remarkable achievements. It was an honor for me to serve PUCIT in its trademark event providing a national level platform to IT students from all across Pakistan. I wish PUCIT and PASC all the best for SoftExpo ’18, keep on serving the nation with best of your efforts and make us proud.
