In collaboration with the IEEE Communications Society, the Singapore office staff helped at the exhibition booth at ConnecTechAsia 2018 (previously known as CommnucAsia), which is the region’s latest mega technology event, combining the strengths of industry stalwarts CommunicAsia, BroadcastAsia and newly launched NXTAsia. This event was held at the Marina Bay Sands and Suntec Singapore on 26-28 June, 2018, with approximately 40,000 professionals participating and over 200 thought leaders speaking at the ConnecTechAsia Summit. With the theme “Digital Business Transformation,” this summit connects solution- based applications and technologies with real-life use cases presented at various sessions.

An opening speech by the Singapore Minister for Communications and Information, Mr. S. Iswaran, highlighted the competitiveness of Southeast Asia as one of the fastest growing regions in the world, with an average annual growth rate of 6 percent higher than the global average of 4 percent over the last decade. More significantly, ASEAN’s digital economy has the potential to contribute an additional US$ 1 trillion to the regional GDP by 2025. Thus, ConnecTechAsia provides a platform for companies that wish to adapt and transform themselves to take advantage of the ASEAN digital economy, an ideal place to start their journey.

The IEEE Communications Society was one of the 1798 exhibitors from more than 60 countries in this mega show. This show is Asia’s only B2B platform that covers the entire spectrum of communication, broadcast, and enterprise technology and services catering to the needs of industry in Asia and beyond.

The Singapore office staff is proud to promote IEEE membership, products and services to global leaders, decision makers, industry practitioners and influencers across the ecosystem in this show. As technology is changing the world around us rapidly, IEEE is playing a vital role to be the trusted source for engineering, computing and technology information, and to create an environment where all the players can collaborate in this world-changing technology.
