CommunicAsia is where the business of technology comes to life, providing a global platform for showcasing the convergence of the latest digital technologies across mobile networks and applications, network infrastructure and satellite communications.

EnterpriseIT showcases the latest dedicated solutions for vertical industries such as banking, logistics, healthcare, education, transportation and government. Where IT meets business, the event presents the latest applications for the smart enterprise. www.goto-EnterpriseIT.com

BroadcastAsia is the region’s leading multimedia and entertainment technology event that presents the latest in digital and interactive media, covering the entire value chain of content creation, management, and distribution. www.Broadcast-Asia.com

Registered members of the media are able to access CommunicAsia, EnterpriseIT and BroadcastAsia with their press badge.

Why the switch to a three-day show?

As organisers we actively seek and listen to feedback from our exhibitors and visitors, and strive to optimise the events to best serve them. Through regular engagement with our stakeholders, we are hearing that three days is the optimal amount of time for both exhibitors and visitors to fulfil their objectives of the show.

Why has BroadcastAsia moved to Suntec Singapore?

During the 2011 and 2012 editions of the show, BroadcastAsia was held at Suntec while CommunicAsia was held at Marina Bay Sands. BroadcastAsia subsequently moved to Marina Bay Sands in 2013 when Suntec Singapore underwent renovations.

With renovation complete, BroadcastAsia’s move back to Suntec Singapore will give both BroadcastAsia and CommunicAsia the room to grow, to provide more and better offerings for all our attendees.

Will there be a Media Centre and press lounge at Suntec Singapore?

Yes there will be a Media Centre and press lounge at both Suntec Singapore and Marina Bay Sands respectively.

Will there be shuttle busses between the two venues?

Yes continuous shuttle service between Suntec Singapore and MBS will be provided at an estimated frequency of 15 mins intervals.

Where will the Opening Ceremony be held?

The Opening Ceremony will be held at Marina Bay Sands, but the VIP tour will span both venues.
