BroadcastAsia/ConnecTechAsia Goes Virtual with 2nd Postponement

ConnecTechAsia, the umbrella Infocomm Media and Technology event organised in partnership with Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), will be held on a virtual platform from 29 September to 1 October 2020. This shift to a virtual event is in response to the dynamic situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, where travel and physical restrictions are still in effect globally.

Pivoting to an online stage, ConnecTechAsia, incorporating BroadcastAsia, CommunicAsia, SatelliteAsia and co-located with TechXLR8 Asia, will be a three-day virtual event which will thereafter turn into a 24/7, 365 days interactive marketplace. Conference delegates will engage with a live keynote, Q&A, and breakout sessions while on the virtual exhibition floor companies will showcase their vertical-specific products to registered attendees. 

Mr Ivan Ferrari, Event Director, Tech, Media & Entertainment Events, Informa Markets, said, “In our function as market makers we must adapt swiftly to serve our community in all possible circumstances, all year round. The permanent addition of a 365 days virtual platform to ConnecTechAsia’s offering will enable a seamless, powerful, continuous engagement within our industry and unlock additional, measurable value for audiences in the community we serve. I am convinced that this significant investment in virtual will bring about a fresh experience that they will appreciate and gain from.”

Mr Howie Lau, Assistant Chief Executive (Media and Innovation) at IMDA, and co-chair of the ConnecTechAsia Advisory Committee noted the decision to organise a virtual event. He added, “In these extraordinary times, ConnecTechAsia as a virtual platform can bring the industry together, allowing companies to seek new opportunities and explore ways to navigate this new normal. We are heartened that Informa, one of the world’s preeminent event organiser, continues to invest in Singapore’s tech ecosystem. IMDA looks forward to even stronger partnerships in future.”
