RAD welcomes hundreds of delegates to the UK Asia Tech Powerhouse conference
Earlier this week, the technology community converged at Royal Albert Dock (RAD) for the UK Asia Tech Powerhouse, which brought together leading experts and delegates to take part in a series of debates and competitions as part of London Tech Week.
We welcomed an extensive line-up of speakers, including Singaporean entrepreneur Annabelle Kwok; Mark Purdy, Accenture’s Group Chief Economist and Managing Director at Accenture Research; and Mark Field, the UK Minister of State for Asia and the Pacific, who explored everything from the transformational effect of AI on the world economy, to evolving urban mobility, the latest in fintech, and how Asian cities are leading the march towards a digital future.
During the conference, the audience heard that Asia is at the centre of many exciting developments in the tech world, from fintech and cyber security to smart mobility, and learned that there are increasing opportunities for UK businesses to benefit from cross-border collaboration.
As part of the event, we also hosted leaders from the Jiangbei Tech Zone in Nanjing and China’s leading technovation platform for IP and corporate services and Guangzhou-based organisation, WTOIP, who launched their high-tech and innovation funding and support programme.
The initiative is giving UK tech companies the opportunity to access millions of pounds of funding to reach new markets in Asia and the opportunity to join a tour of China’s leading tech regions.
Following an afternoon of insightful pitches, the judging panel awarded smart digital workplace platform, Fantoo, as the well-deserved winner.
John Miu, Chief Operating Officer of ABP London, said: “We welcome collaboration and are proud to have hosted this successful event, which has resulted in a number of new trading relationships.”
