When the organisers of the upcoming ConnecTechAsia realised that their landmark event for the region would be all-virtual, they knew they had to go the extra mile to ensure that attendees would get a different experience: one well-beyond a basic live-stream of a lecture theatre and exhibition hall. In fact, it’s true to state that attendees will actually get more out of ConnecTechAsia this year than previous years, and certainly more than any other similar all-online tech showcase event.
Going further online
The first advantage of an all-virtual event like ConnecTechAsia 2020 is that Additionally, the same technology that’s powering the virtual show floor also offers a “business matchmaking” service powered by an AI engine. This intelligently matches vendors and suppliers with prospects, and can both schedule meetings and run 1:1 video calls, right on the same platform.
365, 24/7 Marketplace
As anyone who attended previous years’ shows can attest, the three-day event just isn’t long enough to attend all the sessions one would like to, nor is it possible to explore every stand in detail. Again, this year’s show organisers have come up trumps: after the show is officially over, the online Marketplace remains available for a whole year. You’ll be able to revisit all the show’s stands at your leisure, spending time absorbing the value propositions and offerings, with more information just a click or two away from the interactive search bar at the top of the event page.
Also available after the September 29th to October 1st event will be all speaker sessions, whose content will be available on-demand. Plus, all materials from each session will be offered for immediate download so you can examine what’s been said and explore each area more deeply. With expert speakers on-tap and a wealth of information, including demos and product showcases from exhibitors, the three-day event is set to extend its value for the next twelve months, helping drive digital transformation across the region.
“ConnecTechAsia gives us a unique opportunity to check the market directly through meetings with professionals and to meet representatives from local companies. During event days, we are looking forward to strengthening our positions in Singapore and Thailand, acquiring new customers and partners, and to further expanding in the region […] We also hope to meet our future Value-added Reselling partners to closely work on delivering technology which enables quality Wealth Management services for everyone.” Ekaterina Iarygina, Marketing & Partnerships Manager, FA Solutions.
The movers and shakers
Two bonus events are appearing under the ConnecTechAsia umbrella platform for the first time this year. Elevating Founders connects Series A funding stage and pure startups that have the potential to “make a dent in the universe,” as Steve Jobs once said. Elevating Founders comprises a highly curated blend of new companies, investors, media, tech giants, and venture capital professionals who will support and shape technology’s future right across the world.
This will be an amazing opportunity to see who the next stars of the technology world might be in the future, as the region lives up to its reputation for exciting innovation and foresight that the rest of the world can only follow.
In a similar vein of all that’s new, exciting, and at the cutting edge of technology, ConnecTechAsia is pleased to introduce the CommunicAsia Awards for the first time this year. Part of the larger CommunicAsia event, and with categories ranging from “Most Significant Contribution to Edge Computing” to “Best 5G Core Technology”, it’s here that attendees will be able to see the best of the best in this sector.
