Web hosting provider HostGator has confirmed its participation at ResellerClub’s Hosting Summit in 2013.
The event will take place in New Delhi, India, over the 17th and 18th of October. It is the return of an event that saw great success in 2012. Last November, the event attracted over 1,800 people, making it the largest web-hosting event in Asia.
This year, reseller-hosting provider ResellerClub said it expected to attract 2,800 attendees. These visitors would come from domain resellers, web designers, web hosts, ISPs, and data centres. This diverse mix of companies has attracted HostGator to the event.
HostGator sees this as an opportunity to connect with some of the biggest players in the industry. Last year, over 30 major brands put in appearances. These brands included ICANN, Google, and Microsoft.
The summit is mainly a networking event where companies forge agreements and consolidate relationships. Special guest speakers will also appear. The ResellerClub have yet to reveal anything about the contents of the event for 2013, or its long-term future going forward.
The general manager and business head of ResellerClub, Shridhar Luthria, said, “The attendance, participation and the feedback we received at the event last year shows that there was definitely a need for a platform of this nature in India, where people could network, exchange ideas and discuss latest industry trends.”
According to a survey carried out following last year’s event, 97 per cent of visitors said it was worthwhile and they would return in 2013.
HostGator sees this event as a sign of the growth, and potential growth, in the Indian market. The company wants to make its presence known and gain exposure so that it can push its products in this part of the world. Doing so would enable it to unlock a large source of revenue.
