Until recently mobile-internet innovations in one Asian country had little impact on its immediate neighbours, which effectively meant the region was growing apart. Now that’s changing and Asia is growing together. Ms. Knox, who joined Google in 2007, has been responsible for creating a major brand presence in Singapore and for driving the company’s strategy and growth across APAC.
Ms. Knox comments, “CommunicAsia2012 Summit is an exciting space to discuss the latest technological developments taking place in the Asia Pacific region. It is my great pleasure to present the Visionary Address at this international platform. I am excited to share my views on these developments, especially of the smartphone, with fellow colleagues from the industry, and how technology has changed and enabled businesses in Asia to grow.”
Delegates at the CommunicAsia2012 Summit can look forward to over 170 conference sessions, workshops, and panel discussions that will foster dialogue among industry and government leaders, and provide executive insights and analysis on the exciting ICT developments across the globe.
A wide range of topics from cloud computing to mobile marketing will be presented by prominent speakers such as Mr. Simone Brunozzi, Technology Evangelist, Asia Pacific, Amazon Web Services; Mr. Dan Scoffer, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, VeriFone; Mr. Vivek Jhamb, Senior Vice-President, Vodafone Global Enterprise, India; Mr. Christian Geissendoerfer, CEO of Yoose; Mr. Wayne Purboo, President, CEO & Co-Founder, QuickPlay Media; Mr. Rodrigo Donazzolo, Head of IP Interoperability, BT Global Telecom Markets Asia Pacific, and many more.
Mobile technology will be a key focus at the CommunicAsia2012 Summit and will feature dedicated workshops on mobile marketing strategies and mobile security. Other tracks include next-generation broadband, satellite communications, cloud computing, over the top technologies (OTT), customer experience management and augmented reality strategies.
“As mobile technologies transform the ICT landscape and revolutionise business models and marketing approaches, understanding this small but powerful device is vital to manoeuvring through the future ICT landscape. CommunicAsia2012 Summit brings together industry thought leaders, government ministries and international industry associations to generate in-depth discussion and knowledge sharing of strategies and solutions,” says Ms. Lindy Wee, Director of PR and Conferences from event organiser, Singapore Exhibition Services (SES).
