IoT Thailand is held annually in Bangkok. With a focus on local telecommunication companies and enterprises in key verticals, the event offers Southeast Asia’s most comprehensive program for solution providers targeting enterprise adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technologies in Thailand.
Asia IoT Business Platform 2017 Bangkok, Thailand will be held on 24 – 25 July 2017 at Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong.
While IoT has grown tremendously over the past few years – being heralded as the “fourth industrial revolution” that can change the way businesses and organisations operate, IoT adoption remains conservative. Concerns over cost effectiveness, interoperability and security loom over the decision-making process, creating the needs for businesses to seek thought leadership, use cases, and consultative strategic planning to better understand how to adopt IoT successfully. With this in mind, this year’s edition of program will focus on concrete discussions between IoT solution providers and end users to address key challenges and pain points in implementing IoT in businesses.
The second focus of AIBP will be on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), which currently makes up 98.5% of businesses and account for some 70% of national employment. By 2021, value of SME GDP will account for 50% of total GDP. SMEs are encouraged to initiate creative and innovative business, with the use of technologies and R&D, and the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion has plans for boosting “Smart SMEs”, as part of Thailand 4.0 Initiative.
Topics covered in the program include the use of IoT in public services, manufacturing, agriculture, transport and logistics, and many other verticals. Sustainability and efficiency are key themes in IoT conversations, especially in smart cities and productivity. From smart metering and smart grids that aim to improve energy consciousness and efficiency in supply and consumption to automation and monitoring, IoT continues to disrupt business operations positively to enhance corporate sustainability and efficiency.
This is a dynamic industry platform that should not be missed if you want to understand more about enterprise digital transformation and IoT in Thailand, understand businesses’ needs and challenges in adopting IoT, and establish important connections that will benefit you and your organisation in many ways.
