The virtual event, which is expected to have more than 10,000 attendees, will take place from September 29 to October 1, 2020.
Informa Markets has announced new details for ConnecTechAsia2020, the first virtual Infocomm, Media and Technology event held in partnership with Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), from September 29 to October 1, 2020.
The event will feature some 200 exhibitors, several of which are taking part for the first time showcasing the latest 5G technologies and enterprise solutions. This group includes AT&T, SPTel, Qualcomm, ServiceNow, StarHub and Verizon. Other bellwethers will also enrich the virtual experience; they are Grass Valley, Huawei, KTSat, Roland, Sony and SingTel Satellite, to name a few.
Six group pavilions bringing with them companies from the European Union, France, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Israel, Korea and Ontario are also taking part. In addition, more than 220 conference sessions addressing the latest industry trends and challenges will feature top industry names, including Anne Chow, CEO, AT&T Business, Brenda Harvey, GM, IBM Asia Pacific, Bicky Bhangu, President, Southeast Asia, Pacific and South Korea, Rolls Royce, Martin Huang, MD Southeast Asia, SenseTime, and Euan Smith, CEO of TV & Group COO, Astro.
With more than 10,000 attendees expected to connect to the virtual event, ConnecTechAsia2020 will offer four virtual exhibition halls which 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 valuable 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 are an integral part of any event experience and have also been enhanced through a powerful 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, available right at their fingertips using their device of choice. This 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.
Comprising long-time favourites BroadcastAsia and CommunicAsia, ConnecTechAsia2020 will feature new entrants SatelliteAsia and TechXLR8 Asia staging their respective exhibitions and conferences.
Inaugural Asian editions of accelerateHER Asia and Elevating Founders will also be key highlights of this year’s event, featuring prominent names from the women-in-tech and start-up worlds.
After the live event, ConnecTechAsia2020 will thereafter turn into a 24/7, 365-day interactive marketplace, allowing exhibitors and buyers to continue to connect and communicate on the same platform.
Commenting on the details, Ivan Ferrari, Event Director, Tech, Media & Entertainment Events, Informa Markets, who spearheads ConnecTechAsia said: “The disruption we’re facing today has pushed our community to dramatically accelerate a digital transformation which was already underway.

Success is indeed in the agency of others, and we thank our community for trusting our work in these difficult times. Together, we are contributing to shaping the future of our industry.”
