As some of you know, today I was in the Unitech fair (26th Feb – 01st Mar 2010) held at Octave Wiehe Auditorium, Reduit. Frankly speaking, I was quite disappointed, both as a visitor and someone who represented his company(here, DCDM Consulting).
As you will notice in the post for the 2007 edition, I described the fair as totally amateur… Sorry guys, you haven’t improved, even 3 years later!
Today was the last day for the thing they organised. As expected, there were not many people.
However, the temperature inside the hall was really uncomfortable! I can’t imagine what the situation on the very first day or even the second day of the fair, with hundreds of people crowded in a relatively small space… I saw only 2 fans and fortunately, one was pointing towards my stand there.
Someone told me that only 2-3 out of the 8pcs were in working conditions for LAN games. [UNCONFIRMED – Confirmed by Sun and Tushal]
I met a friend who was surprised to see me there… He asked me me what I was doing at the university… I told him about the fair… He told me “What fair?” lol! There was so much fairs there that some people have stopped bothering about them!
The cinema hall
At some time, someone from the organising committee must have though : “Let’s play movies using the projector!”
They found it fun to play Transformers and some other bollywood movie, aloud with the 10.23 surround speaker system they had! The whole hall echoed the sounds.
It was irritating, especially with that temperature! Fortunately, I controlled myself! I was really going to ask them to turn that off!
Unitech… Sorry, but I can’t see the movie word somewhere.
I thought that University students were not kids anymore but I was wrong for them!
An additional point : I have no details about the deal (for food) made with the participants but at some time, I was informed that I will be receiving something to eat for lunch…
Cool! Yeah, I did receive it, but nearly after 1pm!
Please note : normally, my lunch time is noon, and you?
“Vive marsan dal pourri enbas la boutik!”
I hope that the guys take these comments as some of the areas of improvement for their next ‘fair’. The aim of this post is to point out a few things which should/should not be in an official fair…
So people, were you aware of the Unitech? How did you find it?
