For Investors, Innovators & Ideators Across Asia’s Digital Economy

October 24-26, 2018


APOStech 2018, hosted by Media Partners Asia (MPA), focuses on the innovations and trends that are redefining telecoms, media and the internet. The summit, now in its third year, highlights the drivers and market opportunities that can unlock value, anchored to product, partnerships, network investment and M&A.

We bring together the founders, entrepreneurs, C-suite management and decision-makers that are driving innovation, strategy and execution. Our communities of interest stem from telecoms, ecommerce, internet, livestreaming & OTT, advertising, AR/VR, pay-TV, digital payments, gaming, esports and broadcasting.

Key Themes

Key themes across the APOStech 2018 agenda include:

  • The Payment Puzzle

    Innovation in digital payments, helping nurture a multi-billion dollar ecommerce sector, can also unlock value for consumer media and entertainment. We explore what’s working and breaking through in emerging and developed markets, and why.

  • 5G And The Future Of Distribution

    Next-generation communication is becoming a reality. The first 5G pilots are underway, with real- world deployment around the corner. We evaluate the impact on TMT, while sizing up the challenges and benefits as a new distribution landscape takes shape.

  • Future Paths For Broadband Investment

    Mobile broadband rollouts are expanding and reshaping the high-speed internet experience across Asia Pacific. We highlight the implications for conventional networks, and how fixed broadband operators should stay flexible and adapt.

  • Personalization & Innovation in Video

    How are Asia’s market leading OTT and telco platforms scaling technologies and implementing product innovation to drive the user experience and various business models?

  • Online Advertising Changes The Rules

    As online video distribution and advertising build scale, traditional broadcasters need to keep up. We look at ways the sector could reinvent itself to stay relevant, and the role that technology will play.

  • Gaming - Child's Play Or Big Business?

    Esports and casual gaming are breaking out of their niches to enter the mainstream. We size up opportunities for network operators, content creators and IP owners, as gaming establishes itself as an integral part of online entertainment.

  • Fractured Reality

    Content forms and delivery are expanding to include virtual, augmented and now mixed reality. We review how the ecosystem is developing and monetising these advances, as well as how business and technology will evolve in the near and medium term.

  • AI & Machine Learning

    AI, touted as a transformational technology, promises to curate as well as create content, streamline media workflows and better understand consumers. We see what real-world examples are working thus far in TMT, and what AI 2.0 might look like.

  • The Outsiders

    We showcase the hottest start-ups working to transform content, communication and commerce in Asia Pacific and key global markets.
