Blacklisting of PATE, USA

Dear PSEB member,


PATE USA was organizer of Pakistan American Trade Expo which was scheduled to be held at the Convention Centre, Washington DC between May 23-27, 2015.  The event was pitched as "one of Pakistan’s largest exhibition and conference with over 300+ Exhibitors, 200+ Delegates, 8000+ Attendees and renowned conference speakers from across the globe representing the leading business and commerce sectors of Pakistan and USA.”


The event was never held and the company did not refund payments to the Pakistan IT companies thereby engaging in fraud.


On account of engaging in deception & dishonest business practices as well as defrauding Pakistani IT companies of a significant sum, PATEUSA (, Mr. Hassan Jalil, CEO of PATE USA and Mr. Saqlain Gilani, Coordinator on behalf of PATE USA have been blacklisted by Pakistan Software Export Board and PSEB companies are warned against engaging in any dealings with the aforementioned entities and individuals in future.
