Following the success of APOS, Asia’s premier event for the media, telecommunications and entertainment industry, Media Partners Asia (MPA) today announces the launch of APOS | tech, a new summit uniting leaders of distribution, product, strategy and technology across Asia Pacific telecommunications and media industries.
APOS | tech takes place on September 20-22, 2016 in Hangzhou, China.
MPA’s goal is to discuss, debate and address key drivers and challenges anchored to technological innovation and integration as well as focusing on new investment opportunities for operators.
Commenting on the scope of the event, MPA executive director & co-founder Vivek Couto said, “As the worlds of broadband and video collide and converge, technology is playing a critical part in unlocking value from consumer eyeballs and wallets. Today, media and telecom operators are at an important inflection amidst changes in CPE technology, the growing role of big data, the massive demand for broadband, the growth online video and the evolution of 4K. How are operators gearing up to win new customers and create new revenue streams and what is the impact on networks, product functionality and service execution? These are the some of the key questions APOS | tech will address.”
