Be Inspired by the Future of Technology at EmTech Asia 2018

12 December 2017, SINGAPORE – Science and technology is rewriting the way we live, work, and play. Whether we are ready or not, visionaries, scientists and inventors change our lives through their innovations. They seek to improve medical care, build smarter cities, analyse large swaths of data and ensure that 10 billion people have sufficient energy, food and water to survive. In 2018, more than 40 of the technology world’s most visionary leaders and innovators will address these trends and more at EmTech Asia, which will be held from 30 – 31 January at the Marina Bay Sands. 

“If you want to know across a range of different technologies, exciting things that are happening that may well come to market relatively soon, this is the place to come – EmTech Asia. You just don’t get that out of the deep science conferences,” said Daniel E. Hastings (pictured above top left at EmTech Asia's space 4.0 panel in 2017), Chief Executive Officer of Singapore MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART). SMART is EmTech Asia’s Innovation Partner.
