Call for Paper


The ConnecTechAsia Summit 2018 will make its comeback fresher and bolder to Marina Bay Sands and Suntec Singapore this 26 – 28 June 2018. Co-located with CommunicAsia, BroadcastAsia and NXTAsia exhibitions that draws more than 25,000 visitors annually, this event promises to excite your palate to another level.

Our audience is a who’s who list of senior decision-makers from across the board: senior-level executives, thought-leaders, innovators, and industry experts across the enterprise value chain will be imparting their knowledge and insights to a global congregation of delegates.

Taking on the theme of “Experience the Future” for ConnecTechAsia Summit 2018, we are looking for the most exciting and newsworthy case studies from leading organisations strategising, implementing and measuring success of their digital transformation project.

We ask our speakers to prepare and deliver inspirational, engaging and practical sessions that will motivate our delegates to get excited and further involved with all things TECH! Your paper should be sales-pitch-free, inspirational and compliments the enterprise implementation case studies.

To submit your proposal please email us with an outline of the topic you wish to cover, highlighting the pivotal themes you are looking to address, speaker details including a mini bio.
