ConnecTechAsia 2018: More than 30 British companies, 13 exhibiting for the first time and 15 receiving grants from DIT, will be supported by Tradefair featuring the latest the UK has to offer in broadcast, media technology and services at ConnecTech Asia 2018, Singapore, from 26 – 28 June 2018.
ConnecTechAsia is comprised of three parallel shows – CommunicAsia, BroadcastAsia, and a new event, NXTAsia. With legacy events CommunicAsia and BroadcastAsia having served the telecommunications and broadcast media sectors respectively for nearly 40 years, the addition of the new NXTAsia builds upon that well-established legacy to bring new technologies that are shaping the entire spectrum of communication, broadcast, and enterprise technology and services in Asia.
Tradefair, which organises, supports, and facilitates the participation of UK companies in major international trade shows on behalf of the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) and in association with techUK, the Information Technology Telecommunications and Electronics Association, is keen to ensure that eligible British companies that wish to participate in key global trade shows receive the financial and logistical assistance to enable them to focus their energies on showcasing their products and services to the world.
In that regard, Tradefair has been hugely successful over more than 25 years, managing an extensive programme of supported overseas exhibitions for eligible UK companies on behalf of the DIT, focusing on overseas events such as ConnecTechAsia that have proven to be successful in generating quality international business for the UK tech sector.
In a departure from previous years, the three shows take place in two Singapore venues. BroadcastAsia will take place at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre. CommunicAsia and NXTAsia will be held at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
