About the TIA Conference 2020
Asia’s premier tech and startup conference is back this year, totally reimagined for 2020, and we’re focusing on “Southeast Asia’s Golden Age: 2021 and Beyond.” Asia’s tech community has a once in a lifetime opportunity to reshape the work and lives of Asia’s 4.6 billion residents, thanks to the window of opportunity brought by the confluence of Southeast Asia’s demographic shifts and disruption of Covid-19.
The TIA Conference 2020 Virtual will be held from 19-22 October with 3,000 expected attendees. Our audience is made of the who’s who of Asia’s tech community, including founders, startups, investors, government, and corporates. Additional details can be found in our Speakers Prospectus.
