Compelled by young and curious nature, hundreds of Nepali youths are flocking to visit 16th CAN Info-Tech 2010 exhibition held in Nepali capital Kathmandu.

Since youths aspire to get familiar with latest technology and try to inhabit themselves in it, these freshers have become the center of the mega event-information, communication and technology exhibition.

A gala exhibition organized by Computer Association of Nepal (CAN) has been dominated by youths seeking fresh ideas since the event was inaugurated by Nepali Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal on Wednesday.

"80 percent of the visitors are youths," CAN secretary-general Binod Dhakal told Xinhua on Friday. According to him, more than 35,000 visitors visited the exhibition on Thursday and he is expecting about 100,000 visitors to turn up on Saturday, a public holiday.

Amid a various IT products being exhibited, the freshers were fascinated by latest laptops, iPod, mobile phones among others.

By displaying the latest technology, CAN Info-Tech is providing these youths with information on how to make their daily life convenient with the help of one small device.

The six-day exhibition attracts the highest number of visitors in Nepal, organizers claimed.

More than 400,000 visitors are expected to visit the exhibition, according to Dhakal.
