The Bengaluru Tech Summit (BTS) - one of the largest technology summits in the country, is less than a month away.

Organised by the Department of Electronics, Information Technology Biotechnology and Science & Technology, Government of Karnataka, this year’s summit is going virtual and will take place over three days from November 19 to November 21, 2020. In its 23rd edition, the summit will focus on facilitating dialogue and collaboration for businesses, governments, academia and innovators to navigate the post-pandemic world.

The event will see global leaders, influencers and companies sharing their vision for the future.
