Backed by Informa Tech, Informa Markets will be running ConnecTechAsia in partnership with Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) from September 29 to  October 1 at the Singapore EXPO. Other events in the same venue will include established TechXLR8 Asia, Elevating Founders - a new start-up exhibition, and a large number of international pavilions for the Tech ecosystem. Black Hat Asia will be held from September 29 to October 2 at the Marina Bay Sands.

These core events will serve the media and broadcast (BroadcastAsia), telecoms – (CommunicAsia), satellite (SatelliteAsia), enterprise markets  (TechXLR8 Asia & Black Hat Asia), and will focus on key overarching and interconnected technologies including 5G, AI, IoT, OTT, Satellite, Cloud, Data analytics, AR/VR, Cybersecurity, Blockchain and Enterprise solutions.

The week-long combination will also host C-level events which address innovation and diversity in media, broadcast and tech respectively, as well as a series of sharply focused training courses and workshops, exhibition tech tours and Innovation Lab visits. A VIP dinner, awards for the broadcast and service provider markets and a Tech Night Party for the whole event in central Singapore will shape the backdrop for a massively powerful formula in its first seminal iteration in the Tech hub of Southeast Asia.

More than 1,800 exhibitors from 76 countries/regions and 45,000+ global tech professionals are expected to attend, making it the most anticipated tech event happening this year.

Mr. Ivan Ferrari, Event Director, Tech, Media and Entertainment Events, Informa Markets, said that once the decision was made to postpone this year’s edition of ConnecTechAsia, the company's goal became to create an even stronger value proposition and deliver the best possible networking experience to maximize opportunities for all our attendees and everyone involved. This is what we believe this co-location of successful, interrelated events will deliver, in the best possible location in Southeast Asia.
