Why serious TMT leaders are attending ConnecTechAsia
Professionals in the telecom, media, and technology (TMT) industry are at an extremely exciting point of their career right now because of all the upcoming innovations in their space.
The Infocomm, Media and Technology ecosystem is on the brink of a new hyper-age – one that will fundamentally transform the way enterprises work, value is created, content is experienced, and how citizens and governments interact in the smart cities of the present. Underpinning this phenomenon is the convergence of multiple technologies: superfast connectivity, 5G, AI, IoT, big data, cloud & edge solutions, and new breakthroughs in cybersecurity.
However, to make sense of what’s next, professionals need to collaborate, discuss, and compare notes and the upcoming ConnecTechAsia2019 event in Singapore provides the perfect platform for not only in TMT, but all leaders in APAC and across the globe.
