City and Venue

Bangalore

Bangalore International Exhibition Center

Bangalore, India's answer to Silicon Valley, has carved a niche for itself as the information technology leader, putting it on the world map. It is Asia's fastest growing cosmopolitan city and it is also the home of numerous industries, including software, aerospace, telecommunications, machine tools, heavy equipment, and defense. Bangalore is also emerging as the hub of India's biotech industry.

 

SAP TechEd takes place at the
Bangalore International Exhibition Centre.

November is the best time of year to visit Bangalore. The weather is perfect with an average high of 27°C (81°F) and low of 18°C (64°F). Conference dress is casual. Bring comfortable shoes for walking through the expansive convention center.

Walk alongside the Boulevard of Gulmohar (Delonix) or under the closed canopy of fairy lights. Feel the verve of the year-end festivals and the shopping mania. Bangalore boasts a rich and varied past, while being in absolute accord with the contemporary day and age.

Complimentary Transportation to Metro and Hotels
Since the venue is located outside the city of Bangalore, there will be buses from following pickup points. The buses will also drop you back to these pickup points in the evening.
