With concerns for the safety of exhibitors and visitors, the organisers decided to go digital after holding in-depth consultations with key industry players.
The decision was also influenced by the fact that international travel restrictions are still in place, along with the mandatory 14-day quarantine requirements, which make it almost impossible to hold an international trade exhibition in Thailand.
The virtual edition of the expo aims to provide a highly effective digital platform for buyers, sellers and stakeholders in the tech and digital sector to continue to stay in touch, network and do business in these difficult times.
CEBIT Asean Thailand 2020 virtual edition will feature virtual exhibitor booths, interactive live one-on-one chat and video platforms, virtual business matching, free to attend webinars, and live streaming, allowing exhibitors to reach out to their targeted customer and online attendees.
In addition to offering alternative online marketing solutions for exhibitors, this virtual edition also serves as a knowledge exchange platform, through the conduct of a series of webinars in collaboration with Thailand’s leading digital media platform Techtalkthai.com, covering topics and discussions on technology, digital trends and strategies.
The virtual edition of the expo is supported by top tech and digital organisations, including the Digital Economy and Society as well as Higher Education, Science, Research, and Innovation ministries, Artificial Intelligence Association of Thailand and Software Park Thailand to name a few.
