The first sub-event, namely the IoT Training or what is called ARA, is aimed at students and teachers of SMA and SMK where knowledge about IoT will be given to the participants of this training. High school students are taught how to create a tool using simple materials. Five tools are taught including, light sensors, motion sensors, ultrasonic sensors, soil moisture sensors, and temperature and humidity sensors.
The second sub-event, namely the Talkshow, was held interactively by presenting several great speakers who are IT volunteer figures, namely Reza Zamir as Co-Founder of SyariHub, Cynthia Cecilia as Founder and CEO of Jobhun, and several other speakers from Telkom Indonesia. They brought material about the IT Career Path which discussed building a startup or working. In addition, it is also equipped with “Smart Things” demonstrations from exhibition stands and sponsors.
For the third sub-event, namely the ExploIT Exhibition or what is called the Explore Fair itself in the form of a digital startup and technology exhibition that has a concept with several booths that will be filled by product exhibitions from several startups vendors in Indonesia. There is also a community that explains how Virtual Reality (VR) works and invites visitors to try it directly. This is so that visitors to this exhibition canto recognize the great benefits of having a startup in supporting technology development in Indonesia so that visitors are expected to realize their opportunity to become an Indonesian Unicorn through the resulting startup.

This Expo also succeeded in cooperating with one of the big companies in the field of technology, namely PT. Telkom Indonesia. Likewise with various communities and startups in the country.
