Marks the spots

Date: 14 to 15 December 2018

Venue: Macau SAR, China

The world currently is in a disruptive stage and it is here to stay. Larger and existing companies often worry that smaller and more agile competitors may beat them to market, and if they don’t start disrupting, they may eventually become obsolete.

Although Asia may enjoy the benefits digital disruption brings and marvelled at the new opportunities for innovations, this also means existing enterprises had better stay on top of the chain or risk becoming obsolete, we may experience massive economic changes especially when we are at the cusp of the next industrial revolution.

Industrial revolutions have always dominated and change the world in a big way, and it will come fast, and sooner than we think. It involves the use of sophisticated technologies that would become a crucial part of our lives tomorrow. Businesses must be ready to compete during this revolution: innovate smart processes and business models, creating intelligent technologies and services, leveraging on AI and IoT and all the necessary perks to mark your spot in this disruptive era, to be irreplaceable.

With this in mind, International Innovation Summit 2018: Think ‘X’ Marks the Spot will address the challenges and provide insights how to “work” with disruption for innovation.

Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower
