Singapore is hosting from May 31 to June 3 the Asia Tech x Singapore (ATxSG) since reopening its border due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
ATxSG is Asia’s flagship technology event that convenes global leaders and decision-makers across the technological ecosystem to debate and address opportunities and challenges as the world taps into the potential of digital to power the next round of global economic growth while building an inclusive digital future.
ATxSG is headlined by the exclusive invitation-only ATxSummit to be held at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore on 31 May, where Heng Swee Keat, Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies will be the Guest of Honour.
With a powerhouse line up of more than 50 speakers and some 2,000 guests from government, business and industry, the event will see robust discussion on a wide gamut of topics such as quantum computing, metaverse, and sustainability for a green digital future.
On the same evening, Teo Chee Hean, Singapore’s Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security, will be the Guest of Honour for the inaugural ATxSummit Social – an exclusive, by-invitation-only dinner for the Summit’s speakers and guests.
The line-up of speakers includes Josephine Teo, Singapore’s Minister for Communications and Information, Guest of Honour for the ATxAI Conference (June 1), as well as a panellist at ‘Trust in the Digital Economy’ (May 31) and ‘Changing Roles of Women in Tech (June 1); and Ong Ye Kung, Singapore’s Minister for Health, who will be speaking at a panel session on ‘Rethinking Healthcare Within a Digital Landscape’.
