There will also be a panel discussion which will touch on the identification of broadband opportunities in this region, the challenges and opportunities in billing and network provisioning, the issue of high-demand for broadband spectrum, and how to boost return on investments (ROI) for the broadband infrastructure.

Senior leaders who will be speaking at the event include:

  • Suresh Sidhu, Chief Corporate & Operations Officer, Celcom Axiata
  • Tran Tuan Anh, Head of Policy and Regulation Division, Viet Nam Telecommunications Authority
  • Mike Wright, Executive Director Networks & Access Technologies, Telstra

Twitter's visionary address
Shailesh Rao, Twitter's Vice President for Americas, Asia Pacific and Emerging Markets, will take the stage at CommunicAsia on 18 June 2014 to highlight the value that social media is able to bring to the business.

In his visionary address titled 'You Matter: Asians Shaping The Pulse of the World Through Live, Authentic Conversations,' Rao will talk about the importance of engagement and why it is the only social currency that truly matters.

"Social media gives Asian consumers the ability to connect with each other, while enabling their voices to be heard around the world," said Rao."These public conversations, ranging from personal interests to key cultural moments, provide everyday opportunities for governments, businesses, media organisations and influential personalities to connect with people across the region. Thus brands and businesses who embrace the power of social media for live, authentic conversations with Asian consumers will be the leaders of tomorrow."

CommunicAsia will be held at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore from 17 to 20 June 2014. It will be held alongside EnterpriseIT2014 and BroadcastAsia2014.
