SMART NATION INNOVATIONS WEEK
Smart Nation Innovations Week from 2 June to 7 June 2018 will welcome more than 20,000 local and international guests across different communities to congregate in Singapore to share and learn about disruptive tech, look into the future impact of technology and celebrate the success of young innovators across Asia. This innovation series comprises pillar events – innovfest unbound, Tech Saturday (Upsized!), futurenow, convergence, arise and Straits Digital Exchange.
innovfest unbound draws key players from the global tech ecosystem – businesses, start-ups, investors, academics, government organisations and the media to connect and share insights. From virtual and augmented reality, robotics, high-powered computing analytics to other disruptive innovations, this event showcases Singapore as a creative hub for emerging technologies that bear potential to change the world. It also hosts the track events of futurenow, convergence, arise and Straits Digital Exchange.
Tech Saturday (Upsized!) is a two-day carnival for everyone, from the young or young-at-heart, to check out the technology showcases and try out the interactive experiences to see how tech positively impact the way we work, live, learn, play, invent and inspire in this digital age!
