For the first time, attendees will learn what
transpires behind-the-scenes at esport
events, at the inaugural Esports Arena Studio
at BroadcastAsia 2018. Featuring a three-day

interact with acclaimed esports personalities,

others. The BroadcastMedia track, a part of
the refreshed ConnecTechAsia Summit, will
deliver thought-leadership and an avenue
for industry discourse aimed at helping
companies be future ready and well-equipped
to meet the next wave of broadcasting.

commemorating our new vision and the
inaugural edition of ConnecTechAsia, we've

change, BroadcastAsia will reflect clearly the
latest tech and trends that are reshaping the
broadcast and digital media ecosystems.
