    Today is dominated by the millennial generation – the generation grew up with internet and everything from consumer behaviour to way of life; it is also the complete opposite from the generations before. Almost all parts of the world are connected or have access to high speed, wireless internet which is probably the most important commodity for everyone. How do companies reinvent and innovate to stay relevant and reach the ever-connected consumer?
  • Keynote: Geospatial time is now
    In today's fast-paced world, there are many new frontiers faced by companies and businesses. From indoor to surrounding space, from drones to robots which all contribute to the advent of smart cities. How can companies navigate and uncover the new opportunities presented by geospatial tech?
  • Keynote: How does a data-driven future look like?
    Many people are curious about the future where a combination of many things are possible - pervasive knowledge, autonomous everything and the Internet of Everything are possibly the main drivers for all aspects of work and life for the generations to come. How does the short-term future look like with AI and the increasing significance of geospatial technology?
  • Panel: Digital Asia - Full on with 5G
    User location is an increasingly important source of value creation. With the introduction of 5G, cloud computing, mobile devices and sensors, data analytics and machine learning have propelled companies to leverage geospatial data and services to build new businesses. The data-driven geospatial industry is expected to grow exponentially in 2020 and beyond.
  • Keynote: Geospatial Innovation in Urban Economic Planning
    With the expected rise of global urban population moving to live in cities, governments and stakeholders are increasingly relying on geospatial technology and its ability to pull together the massive amounts of information necessary to balance competing priorities and solve complex issues, such as optimising new building placement or determining the feasibility of a waste disposal site.

Country Focus: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines & Vietnam
The rise of AI, machine learning and most recently, deep learning are expected to make waves in geospatial data and the whole spectrum. Such technology advancements will help to provide accurate, real time and useful information and smart solutions to tackle some of the real-world challenges today including overcrowding, rising sea level, crop management and more.

  • Keynote: Realising Indonesia's climate change mitigation goal 
    The world is getting warmer every passing year. Indonesia - home to one of the largest tropical forests in the world - has pledged to do its utmost to mitigate the issue. What can technology and innovations like advanced forest monitoring system and transition to renewable energy and more, do to help tackle the challenges now? And what's the role of all key stakeholders in tackling climate emergencies - an existential threat proven by science?
  • Keynote: Infrastructure in Indonesia 2020
    According to the World Bank, Indonesia is currently the world's fourth most populated nation and the world's 10th largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity. One of the main goals set out by the Indonesian government is to accelerate infrastructure development, in order to support industrialisation transformation in response to the fourth industrial revolution. What does this mean for businesses in 2020 and beyond?
  • Keynote: Building digital communities & societies
    Today, access to WiFi and high speed internet are without a doubt a core necessities for many people around the world. The backbone of digital infrastructure, secured network, data analytics and many others are critical elements in building a connected digital society. Find out more about connecting Selangor – the most developed state in Malaysia.
  • Keynote: Drones to the palm oil industry
    For many years, drone technology has predominantly been used by military and defence organisations. With the recent rise of deep tech, IoT, AI and the increasing accessibility to drones, the benefits of adopting drone technology in the commercial and traditional sectors have proven to be a safe, real-time, cost-effective solution.
  • Keynote: Infrastructure in Philippines 2020
    According to a recent report released by the Asian Development Bank, Philippines - the 5th largest economy in Asean by GDP - is expected to recover its growth momentum in the short term despite the ongoing trade war between the giants. The Philippine government is set to continue the "Build, Build, Build" initiative and has plans for infrastructure development in 2020.
  • Keynote: Connecting images from space to decisions on earth
    In today’s world, information is everything, but it can be a challenge to come by the right information at the right time and in the right format. Geospatial technologies and capabilities offer improvements to planning and the ability to respond to challenges and missions – with greater speed and higher certainty, in the desired location. 

    Combining premium data, industry-specific services and analytic capabilities, a variety of industry-specific solutions can be offered. The aim is to make geospatial data and services easy to access, thereby enabling better informed decision-making. 

    With access to a constellation of satellites and open source data, users and premium imagery services users can take advantage of fresh, global layers of geospatial information. Examples of value-added services and analytic capabilities range from no-deforestation verification services to turn-key analytics that provide biomass and nitrogen information to ship detection and the monitoring of oil refineries to help predict shutdowns
