The show, which is being organised by Experia Events Pte Ltd, will also see the participation of 1,000 industry exhibitors from 50 countries and 55,000 trade visitors from 150 countries.
“We all know that there are a lot of technologies that these companies hold. We are looking forward to seeing these startups during pitching sessions,” said Leck Chet Lam, the managing director of Experia Events Pte Ltd during the pre-show press conference.
The presentations will cover sustainability, smart transport, automation, smart manufacturing, digital solutions, artificial intelligence and cyber-security, apart from other vital subjects.
