New focus on NXT cities and services at CommunicAsia expo this year

Singapore, February 10, 2014 – Social media, big data analytics, OTT, multi-platform screening and CYOD (Choose Your Own Device) -- cited in various industry reports as some of the key trends to watch in 2014 -- will also figure prominently at this year's triple expo showcase: CommunicAsia2014, EnterpriseIT2014 and BroadcastAsia2014.
These trends are fuelled by a steep increase in consumption of data and entertainment on mobile devices, with mobile data traffic in Asia Pacific expected to exceed the rest of the world by 2017 . End-users now seek reliable and seamless services on the go; and the industry is responding with a proliferation of cutting-edge solutions such as business analytics, cloud services, social TV, and second/multi screens that help consumers stay connected in an evolving digital world.
Says Victor Wong, Project Director of Communication Events, Singapore Exhibition Services: “As the dominance of mobility proliferates in every aspect of our lives, businesses in Asia need to be agile and flexible to reach out to the always-connected consumer, while maintaining a competitive edge in the market. Our comprehensive showcase of the latest products and solutions including connected devices, multi-screen broadcasting, satellite mobility applications and ultra HD, across CommunicAsia, EnterpriseIT and BroadcastAsia will enable companies to explore sustainable business models to remain competitive and current."
The three showcases will be held between June 17 and 14 2014 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
