SINGAPORE: ConnecTechAsia, the inaugural mega technology event comprising BroadcastAsia, CommunicAsia and the new NXTAsia wrapped up last week after an exciting three days of exhibitions and a summit covering the latest innovations in cloud, blockchain, AI, VR/AR, IoT, robotics, 5G, IP broadcasting, OTT and smart cities, among others.

Under the new brand, ConnecTechAsia this year drew close to 40,000 attendees from 96 countries/regions, and 1,800 exhibitors from 52 countries/regions. Emerging technologies and digital disruption were hot topics, amid the convergence of the Telecoms, Media and Technology (TMT) industries in an evolving business landscape.

?We are pleased to hold the first edition of ConnecTechAsia, which has a renewed format for a more immersive experience with insightful sessions and displays for our attendees that reflect the latest industry trends and technologies that are impacting governments, cities and businesses. We hope that the many partnerships and friendships forged will serve as a foundation for an even more diverse ecosystem and empower Asia as it evolves digitally,? said Victor Wong, Event Director for ConnecTechAsia, UBM.

Gateway to Asia ?  a fast growing, digital powerhouse

The Asia-Pacific region today accounts for 44 per cent of global GDP1 and its shift towards digital is powering the region towards a new era of economic growth and redefining the region?s social landscape.

Echoing this, Paul Marriott, Senior Vice President of Digital Core Solutions, SAP and ConnecTechAsia Summit speaker said, ?Asia is an exciting region with its rapid digitalisation and growth. Enabling enterprises in their journey towards digital evolution to be at the frontier of their respective industries is

a core focus for us at SAP. ConnecTechAsia has been a great platform for us to build key relationships with governments and global businesses to foster greater collaboration and innovation.?

Using ConnecTechAsia as a gateway to the region, the exhibition saw several Asian launches. PepperStack Global, with the support of the Victorian Government of Australia, launched their new NeatStreets Around Me and Micro-compensation feature-sets into the Southeast Asian markets, which allow the public to serve as ?human sensors? and report on safety-related matters using their mobile devices, enhancing the uptime and efficiency of public utilities.

Forsway, a Swedish technology provider, announced the launch of the new Odin F-50 hybrid satellite router to the Asian market, which combines mobile networks with satellites to enable operators to provide highly affordable broadband internet to consumers in regions lacking reliable internet access.

AsiaSat, a leading satellite operator in Asia, also announced its collaboration with KBZ to provide OTT satellite video service in Myanmar, enabling audiences across the country to enjoy video content and TV programmes wherever they are, be it in rural areas or while on-the-go on trains or planes.
