The convergence of emerging technology is changing the consumer landscape and Convergence 005 | SWITCH will focus exactly on that – the consumer revolution that is driven by the latest emerging technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality (MR), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning / M2M, Wearable Technology, 3D Printing, Robotics & Drones, the Internet of Things (IoT), and FinTech / Finance Innovation.
The event will deliver a high impact conference and trade show and provide a unique blend of conference learning, trade show research and cross-industry networking.
Held in conjunction with SWITCH (Singapore Week of Innovation & TeCHnology), a platform that showcases the best ideas, technology and innovation the world has to offer, you can expect to learn a lot when joining the event on Monday 18 September 2017 (11am - 5pm) at the iconic Marina Bay Sands convention center.
