CommunicAsia, EnterpriseIT, BroadcastAsia 2017 kick off with 1,800 exhibitors
ASIA’S largest gathering of technology and digital media companies and experts launched today in Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands and Suntec, split between three events – CommunicAsia, EnterpriseIT, and BroadcastAsia.
The three events cover 65,000sq m across the two venues and host 1,800 exhibitors from 62 countries and regions.
With the concept of being “future-proof” and “future-ready” as the underlying themes across the events, nearly every exhibitor present is displaying technology, concepts and ideas that emphasize the importance of planning for the future and creating long-term, sustainable solutions.

CommunicAsia, in particular, looks towards Smart Cities and “smart living” as a crucial part of the future.
STMicroelectronics executive vice-president and president of the APAC region Marco Cassis said in a statement: “The increasing pervasion of intelligence and connectivity across a broad range of applications and devices, along with the need for more efficient power and resource consumption, is at the heart of the Smart Living trend.
“Technological advancements are enabling the design of ‘smart things’ that are powerful, compact, energy-efficient, secure and affordable enough to provide new capabilities on a large scale and have unleashed the world’s vast creative potential,” he said.
Organiser UBM SES project director of communications Victor Wong said: “With digital transformation turning into a critical component of Asia’s future, we have designed CommunicAsia, EnterpriseIT, and BroadcastAsia 2017 to help companies who are eager to be future-ready.
“With two venues, we are able to host even more leaders and entrepreneurs from the entire innovation ecosystem, open up more opportunities to learn latest trends and network with peers, and provide a holistic and interactive experience for all attendees.”
