Innovation Showcase

Showcasing the Latest Innovations in Mobile Marketing, Payments and Entertainment


What is the Innovation Showcase?

The Innovation Showcase, forming part of Digital Asia 2014, features live demos of cutting edge Mobile marketing, and commerce technology solutions from leading innovators from around the world.

The Innovation showcase acts as an innovation platform by bringing together innovation providers (start-ups and Telco’s that have developed or acquired innovative solutions) with Telco’s and other enterprises seeking to deploy exciting innovations.  Showcase solutions are selected that can scale across Asian markets by leveraging telecoms assets and distribution channels.

Each innovator receives 7 minutes to demo their cutting-edge innovation to the 200+ audience of invited senior executives. Private meetings take place after the demos
