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

Among a congregation of 1,800 exhibitors and 200 thought leaders, 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 optimize 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.

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 hyper-connected businesses that will form a big part of tomorrow's digital life.

CommunicAsia brings together next-gen technologies for the telecom and related industries. BroadcastAsia is where broadcasting media companies and equipment makers showcase their latest products and services, and NXTAsia will feature emerging technologies and enterprise solutions. There will also be power-packed activities, free workshops and seminars, speciality zones, partner programs and networking receptions to keep attendees fully immersed and engaged.
