Where Tech Transforms Business

TechXLR8 Asia, as part of ConnecTechAsia, is where tech and businesses intersect, to inspire you, challenge your perceptions and bring you closer to your business goals. This year, for the first time, Informa Tech will merge TechXLR8 with ConnecTechAsia, Asia’s leading Infocomm Media and Technology Event. This follows on from the highly successful TechXLR8 and London Tech Week events which Informa operates in London in June.

As each emerging technology topic has its own challenges, discussion points and learnings, TechXLR8 Asia hosts individual conferences covering AI, IoT, Cloud, Blockchain, ARVR and Quantum, alongside vertical-specific bite-sized conference sessions to help attendees discover how these technologies are being applied to their market.
