Singapore - The Authority for Info-communication Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) continues to support ICT companies to participate in the prestigious CommunicAsia 2013 which will be held from June 18 to 21 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
A briefing was conducted at AITI last Thursday and staff of 30 ICT related companies from the country attended.
AITI's Chief Executive, Yahkup Menudin in his opening remarks, emphasised the importance for local ICT companies to develop and sell their own services and products so that they can be marketed overseas instead of just being ICT resellers.
AITI's Assistant Chief Executive for International Relations, Wallace Koh Floe Aik, later briefed the audience on the terms and conditions of AITI's subsidised programme for overseas exhibition.
BruGPS and Folec Communications also shared their success stories from their participation in CommunicAsia 2012 last year as an encouragement and sharing their experiences.
Claudine. Ang from Singapore Exhibition Services Pte Ltd, organiser for CommunicAsia 2013, was on-site to brief the ICT companies with regards to the venue and preparation process for participating in the event.
CommunicAsia 2013 will feature leading and home-grown exhibitors that will showcase comprehensive range of key and emerging technologies from augmented reality, FTTx, mobile broadband, mobile applications and innovations, nextgen connected services, NFC and mCommerce, OTT, smartphones & devices, telecom power solutions and many others.
AITI is confident that CommunicAsia 2013 will continue to provide an excellent opportunity for our local ICT companies to get maximum exposure to potential buyers and to strike partnerships and deals.
Local ICT companies can also leverage this event to establish business networks and alliance with prominent ICT players from all over the world.
As part of an ongoing effort in helping the local ICT Industry to participate in the international exhibition, AITI has came up with a series of incentives/subsidies for ICT companies which are keen to participate in the CommunicAsia 2013.
The subsidies include;
• One return economy air-ticket to Singapore for each participating company;
• One standard hotel room;
• Transportation from airport to hotel vice versa;
• 3x2m or 3x3m booth within the Brunei Darussalam Pavilion inclusive of an Al size colour company posters.
Local ICT companies who have their own ICT products/services or have their regional product distributorships are encouraged to participate.
Companies that are registered under AITI Accredited Business (AAB) Status will be given priority due to booths limitation. There will be a nominal participating fee of $500 for each locally registered ICT company.
Application forms can be obtained online from www.aiti.gov.bn. The deadline for submission to AITI's office is on March 15, 2013.
