Beyond exhibitions, the conference will feature keynote presentations and panel discussions by thought leaders. It will have a headline concert with celebrities, no doubt leveraging on MediaCorp’s strengths.
“We believe the marriage between the glamorous and colorful entertainment with the geeky and innovative ICT industry would spark an interesting show that all should anticipate,” said Eddie Chau, serial entrepreneur and chairman of SiTF.
Exhibition space will cost between SGD465 (USD375) and SGD565 (USD450). Early bird pricing will be disclosed later.
While a mainstay in traditional media, MediaCorp has in recent years been modernizing itself. It has ventured into — among other things — mobile apps, e-commerce, startup incubation, and venture capital investing.
