CloserStill Media wins tender to partner with the Singapore Infocomm
Technology Federation (SiTF) in hosting CloudAsia conference
Thursday 9th November, Singapore – Embarking on a three-year strategic collaboration with the
Singapore infocomm Technology Federation (SiTF), CloserStill Media, organiser of the world's
leading business technology event series, has been selected to produce and host CloudAsia.
The case study driven conference is to run alongside CloserStill Media's flagship technology event
Cloud Expo Asia, with a programme designed specifically for key decision makers from government
and public sector organisations, private sector solution providers, as well as end users.
CloserStill Media impressed for its proposal's alignment with SiTF objectives, including the promotion
of internationalisation for local enterprise organisations and support of emerging technology trends
such as big data, cloud computing, cyber security and business transformation.
According to SiTF Chairman, Saw Ken Wye: " SITF is pleased to be partnering with CloserStill Media to
develop the next stage of Cloud Asia in 2018. The adoption and integration of cloud technologies are
enabling users to reduce costs and to drive greater business agility. Over the years, Cloud Asia has
firmly established itself as a leading thought leadership platform and is a showcase for cloud and
technology innovation in the region."
Mr Khoong Hock Yun, Chief Digital Evangelist, Infocomm Media Development Authority also added
“IMDA is happy to see Cloud Asia go from strength to strength each year. It is timely that Cloud Asia
is now helmed by SiTF, and I look forward to Cloud Asia continuing to be a beacon that helps raise the
capabilities of our industries through cloud computing technologies. I congratulate SiTF and CloserStill
Media on their partnership to build up the next lap for Cloud Asia”.
As Singapore prepares to chair the ASEAN Summit in 2018, the strategic partnership also plans to
address the country's key priorities in this regard; tapping into opportunities to develop the digital
economy and streamline regional trade.
On winning the production bid, CloserStill Media Group Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Andy
Kiwanuka commented: "It is an enormous honour to host the CloudAsia conference. We are excited
to deliver such a comprehensive offering of practical insights and real-life use cases to our Cloud Expo
Asia audiences, both here in Singapore and at our sister event in Hong Kong."
CloserStill Media will first launch CloudAsia in Hong Kong, at the HKCEC on 16th and 17th May 2018,
before a wider integration in Singapore on 10th and 11th October 2018 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo
and Convention Centre.
