Aside from a showfloor, the event will host more than 220 conference sessions addressing the latest industry trends and challenges featuring top industry figures such as IBM Asia Pacific’s general manager Brenda Harvey, and Rolls Royce’s president Southeast Asia, Pacific and South Korea, Bicky Bhangu.

ConnecTechAsia2020 will feature new entrants SatelliteAsia and TechXLR8 Asia staging their respective exhibitions and conferences. Inaugural Asian editions of AccelerateHER and Elevating Founders, will also be key highlights of this year’s event, bringing with them the big names from the women-in-tech and start-up worlds.

More than 10,000 attendees expected to connect to the virtual event.

The event’s four virtual exhibition halls will allow companies to set up customisable virtual booths, with live presentations and real-time interaction with buyers. Furthermore, the exhibitor metrics dashboard will give them real-time data and insight into their customers’ behaviour by capturing multiple touchpoints and providing a multi-dimensional view of a visitors’ journey, allowing for more effective outreach and follow-up.

Networking opportunities have also been enhanced through an AI business matching platform. Attendees will receive personalised meeting suggestions based on their interests and profile. On a consolidated dashboard, visitors can view connections, find out who is interested in setting up a meeting with them and arrange for one-to-one video meets via virtual meeting rooms.

Conference delegates will have the full benefits and experience of a live conference, which includes live keynotes, Q&A sessions and breakout rooms. Content will also be available on-demand 24/7 for delegates based in different time zones.

After the live event, ConnecTechAsia2020 will turn into a 24/7, 365-day interactive marketplace, allowing exhibitors and buyers to continue to connect and communicate on the same platform.
