ConnecTechAsia wraps up successful first live virtual event

Event to continue with on-going marketplace and conferences available on demand till 1 June 2021.

Infocomm media and technology event ConneTechAsia concluded after three days of insightful conference sessions and exhibitions on the latest solutions and trends empowering the digital economy.

Organised by Singapore Exhibition Services, more than 6,800 attendees participated in the first fully virtual iteration of the event that featured some 200 conference sessions, more than 280 speakers and 323 exhibitors. ConnecTechAsia also expanded its content to include new shows, conferences, competitions and award ceremonies.

Spread across four main virtual exhibition halls and 12 international group pavilions, 323 companies showcased their latest innovations and solutions and connected with attendees through videos, online chat and live presentations.

Virtual booths at ConnecTechAsia were focused on what the exhibitor wishes to show off at the event, for example, its latest products and services. Representatives and experts of the specific offerings on hand would meet interested parties virtually during the time of their virtual visit, so the experience promises to be close to being at a physical booth, with some enhancements.

Ivan Ferrari, Event Director, Tech, Media & Entertainment Events, Informa Markets, who heads up ConnecTechAsia said, “Having successfully held the first virtual edition of one of the leading technology events in the region on such a scale and amid challenging times has been a humbling and enriching experience.

“This year we even expanded our event, with newly launched shows, conferences, awards and competitions. Our core mission was to deliver a content-rich platform that enables our exhibitors, sponsors and all participants to learn, share, create meaningful connections and foster long-lasting business partnerships and opportunities no matter where they are in the world. Moving forward, we will continue to refine the virtual element of ConnecTechAsia and integrate it with the physical show to create rewarding experiences for all attendees.”
