Different activities were organized over the years since the club was started and Soft Fair was one of them. The annual ‘Soft Fair’ was organized from 3-5 August, 2006 at the Bashundhara City.

NSUCC cele­brated the 7th anniversary of the soft fair. The fair mainly focused on hardware, software and telecommunication sectors of ICT which developed by the leading IT industries, software or hardware companies, telecom service providers and university students

“In Bangladesh there is a huge gap between IT professionals and students because the students of IT have little idea about the professional level. This gap is creating problems in our job market. We should have found out what exactly the IT companies want from them. On the other hand, IT companies don’t know the actual capability and strength of the Computer Science & Engineering or Telecommunication Engineering graduates. As a result IT graduates are facing problems in our country and they are not getting justices to their qualities. So many of them remain jobless or don’t get any suitable job, Said Sayeda Madehaa Bokhari, the convener of the fair and the former In Charge 2004-05 of NSUCC, on the conversation of Nari Jibon ICT Journalist. She also told that the object of this fair will try to remove this gap between IT professionals and students. Here the students would touch with the reality and the IT professional would have a clear concept with the students.

   
 

There were totally 32 companies, universities and training organizations in the fair.  Several companies exhibited their latest technologies, some hardware merchant introduced new products and the students from various universities established their own projects.
