MUMBAI: With transformation at the top of their agenda, business leaders are meeting at ConnecTechAsia, held in Singapore from 18 – 20 June 2019, to showcase and discover the latest technologies that promise to ready businesses for the future.

“Connectivity infrastructure is a key enabler for Digital Economies worldwide, including Singapore’s. ConnecTechAsia has always been a key telecoms calendar highlight, bringing the world’s leading players to Singapore to exchange insights, share best practices, and build the capabilities that will be necessary to bring about next generation networks. We expect ConnecTechAsia to be an exciting platform to learn and experience the cutting edge developments in the technologies that will shape our lives, and wish the event every success,” says Howie Lau, Chief Industry Development Officer, Info-communications Media Development Authority, Singapore.

Among a congregation of 1,800 exhibitors and 200 thought leaders at the Summit, an estimated 40,000 attendees will be looking to truly transformative technologies and solutions to get an edge up in automating business processes and exploring fresh revenue streams in this digital era.

ConnecTechAsia comes out the gate in 2019 as the region’s newly minted telecom, media and technology (TMT) knowledge powerhouse, leveraging new partnerships with leading business intelligence and research affiliates such as Accenture, Deloitte, KPMG, Light Reading, McKinsey, Ovum and Tractica, to provide expert insights to all event stakeholders, not just during three event days, but  throughout the year.

Top brands including Amazon, Axiata, Ericsson, Google, Grab, Huawei, IBM, iflix, Intel, Microsoft, Netflix, NHK, NTT DoCoMo, RedHat, Singtel, Verizon and VMWare among many others will bring with them the latest innovations, new business opportunities and networks, and thought leadership to the show floor and Summit.

“Knowledge has always been the most powerful asset to have, and today’s enterprises need additional clarity to optimise business decisions and harness opportunities. ConnecTechAsia will bring the combined value of its new knowledge partnerships providing TMT intelligence to our stakeholders throughout the year, culminating over three event days in June when the industry comes together to share, make deals and network. This new iteration of ConnecTechAsia is testament to our ever-growing commitment to support the TMT industry and facilitate its path towards successful growth in the region,” says Ivan Ferrari, Event Director for ConnecTechAsia, from organiser UBM Singapore.

In 5G, Artificial Intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, multi and hybrid-clouds, Internet of Things (IoT), smart cities and more, ConnecTechAsia, comprising three pillars catering to each sector of the TMT space, will bring together the diverse yet hyperconnected businesses that will form a big part of tomorrow's digital life.

There will also be power-packed activities, free workshops and seminars, speciality zones, partner programmes and networking receptions to keep attendees fully immersed and engaged.

Commenting  on  the  event,  Andrew  Phua,  Director,  Exhibitions  &  Conferences, Singapore Tourism Board says, “STB is pleased to support the second edition of ConnecTechAsia.
