The UK Pavilion at ConnecTechAsia has provided a valuable showcase for broadcast, telecom and IT technology companies from Great Britain and Northern Ireland in recent years. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s exhibition will be a virtual event but is still set to be a valuable platform for the latest and best in high-tech equipment and systems from the United Kingdom.
Organised by Tradefair on behalf of techUK, which promotes the British digital technology sector, the UK Pavilion for 2020 will give participating firms a presence across the three specialist shows that come under the umbrella of ConnecTechAsia. The super-technology expo, usually held in Singapore, comprises BroadcastAsia (broadcasting, pro audio, film and digital media), CommunicAsia (information and communication technology) and SatelliteAsia (satellite communication technology). These will run in parallel with TechXLR8Asia, which covers enterprise technology and integration.
The shows will focus on the new and emerging technologies that are providing the basis for the interconnected media, consumer and business markets of the future. These include 5G, AI and ML (artificial intelligence and machine learning), the Internet of Things (IoT), OTT, satellite, the cloud, data analytics, virtual and artificial realities (VR/AR), cyber security and blockchain.
The three-day, virtualised version of ConnecTechAsia will feature more than 180 virtual exhibitor booths that will recreate as closely as possible the experience of visiting companies at a real-world show. There is also a full online conference programme of stimulating presentations, with 220 live keynotes plus Q&A and breakout sessions. As at previous ConnecTechAsia shows, there will be networking and VIP lounges, invitation-only roundtables and opportunities to meet the speakers.
