e27 is having its first ever Echelon Asia Summit from the 23rd to 24th June at the Singapore Expo this year! For the past 6 years, Echelon, a technology and business event that commemorates the most brilliant technological and digital innovations in Asia, has been committed to startup companies and change-makers in Southeast Asia’s emerging tech industry.
Every year since 2010, the annual Echelon conference has been running in Singapore. However, in 2014 and 2015, Echelon saw several successful conferences globally, including conferences in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Thus, this year, e27 (Echelon’s organisers) has set their sights on something bigger – the first major Echelon regional summit.
The Echelon Asia Summit is said to be the central point for Asia’s top technology companies / individuals, groundbreaking businesses, gallant investors, and visionary industry representatives to gain the maximum advantages from future digital trends that are shaping the Internet and mobile markets in Asia now.
Delegates will be able to network with over 2,500 attendees from more than 35 countries at the event, including Asia’s most outstanding startups and investors. Meetings will be arranged throughout the 2 days, so one will definitely be able to gain affiliations with the right people / companies.
With “Building a Billion Dollar Company” as the theme this year, over 70 renowned speakers worldwide will be invited to share their insights through the various keynotes lined up during the event. These speakers include Dave McClure, founding partner of 500 Startups, Matt Barrie, CEO and chairman of Freelancer, Michael Smith, Chief Product Officer of Spuul, and many more! Check out the full list of speakers here.
Other than talks, workshops will also be organised throughout the 2 days by industry experts who will provide attendees with various technical skills for them to further advance in their careers. One can also expect to rub shoulders with these experts in open air sessions. Check out the full agenda / list of workshops here.
Additionally, exhibition booths will be held at the event’s huge exhibition hall, which will feature Echelon’s famous Tech Alley. The exhibition area will showcase the hottest innovations from startups and corporates in the region, as well as startups from the TOP 100 program.
Speaking of the Top 100 Program, the top 10 startups from the program will battle it out to win the Most Promising Startup in Asia title, where they will have to present their pitches on stage in front of a live panel of international judges!
