The three-day event saw more than 2000 visitors from Myanmar business organisations. Exhibitors were able to get good commercial leads which will enable them to establish a foothold in Myanmar’s emerging tech scene. 

 

The event started off with a welcome speech by Mr Khun Oo, President of the Myanmar Computer Federation (MCF) and organiser Mr Justin Pau from Bangkok Exhibition Services Ltd. In the light of sweeping reforms, Mr Khun Oo remarked in his speech that IT is essential to economic development and he hopes to attract companies to invest in his country.
