The Deals of Infotel 2015

300

It’s Day 02 of Infotel 2015, Sri Lanka’s biggest IT Exposition and Trade Fair and the crowd is triple what we saw yesterday. As always you’ll see various companies and retailers set up stalls here and sell stuff. Naturally that means you’ll also find many deals hidden amongst the many stalls here.

So we decided to spend the day by visiting each stall and finding out what deals they had to offer. As we walked around this year we found a lot more deals which were spread across Halls A, B and C. Read on and find the complete list of deals we found at Infotel 2015.

Hall A

Unlike last year, the deals this time are very focused on the IT crowd with no salespeople around giving leaflets for discounted donuts. Yet, this is still the hall that many of Infotel’s deals call home. Here you’ll find deals ranging from massive discounts on degrees to 10% off on a mobile phone. To make things easier, we decided to categorize the deals here. So here’s the list of deals we found in Hall A.

  1. Matrix Institute of Information Technology is the worst stall. Their staff have no idea what they are talking about. It’s just another “Education kade”
