Phnom Penh Hosts BarCamp ASEAN 2016

From 4-6 November this year, the BarCamp Cambodia team behind previous successful editions of BarCamp Phnom Penh have organised BarCamp ASEAN.

Held at Norton University in Phnom Penh, BarCamp ASEAN is an intense 3-day international technology conference and exhibition. It brings together tech professionals, startups, business leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, educators and students in the ASEAN region to facilitate an open exchange of their skills and experiences.

Whether its related to the tech or creative industries, or entrepreneurship and career development, everyone’s experiences and perspectives are considered valuable and the event serves as a platform where participants can learn, share and showcase new forms of technology and innovation.

Over 3000 participants are expected at this edition of BarCamp and it is a fantastic opportunity if you have a background or an interest in the areas of entrepreneurship and innovation to network with like-minded individuals.

Throughout the three day event, exhibitions of the latest tech projects will be available for participants to peruse. On day 2 and day 3, over 100 talks will be held, covering 100 topics that cover the different aspects of the tech industry including open source and IT.

On that note, if you have an interesting topic or startup that you would like to share with participants, you can sign up as a speaker as well! That would be a truly unique platform for you to showcase your talent and share about your project.

BarCamp ASEAN is part of a successful series of BarCamp events that have been held all around Cambodia. If you’ve been following us on Geeks in Cambodia, you might have caught our articles about the previous editions – Battambang, Ratanakiri, Angkor and of course, Phnom Penh.

Testament to the success of past BarCamp events which started 9 years ago, the event now boasts that they have engaged over 21,000 participants across 10 provinces and cities across the Kingdom.

BarCamp was initially started by Bun Tharum and Hok Virak who envisioned a platform here geeks from all around the South East Asia region could come together and talk about tech in Phnom Penh. Come November this year, that dream could very well become a reality.

So what’s there to lose? Join BarCamp ASEAN 2016 and be part of this huge community of tech enthusiasts all throughout the Kingdom and the ASEAN region.
