or nearly three decades, CommunicAsia
and BroadcastAsia have served the IT and
media industry alongside the sister show,
Enterprise IT. This industry changes faster than
almost any other sector in today's economy
and it is important to stay relevant in such
changing times.
As the region pursues digital transformation
at an accelerated pace, we found it critical
to evolve alongside the dramatic shifts
happening in the spaces we serve. The
genesis of ConnecTechAsia stems as a
response to the expanded needs of the
tech and communications community
to see, discover, and experience more of
