In The Pandemic Economy, This Digital Conference Is What You Need

This will be the sixth edition of the region’s premier tech conference.

Southeast Asia’s premier tech conference Wild Digital 2020 will be starting its sixth edition on 3 November this year. The conference will also be held virtually for the very first time, allowing attendees from around the region to participate from wherever they are.

Some of the topics that attendees will get to hear discussed during the conference include the role of technology in the new normal, as well as its impact on various industries.

Right now, we are witnessing first-hand the effects of remote working, the boom of e-commerce platforms, the rise of telehealth and other tech-centric impacts on the collective community. We’re excited to bring these topics to the fore on our Main Stage.
