Third annual technology event will be held in Yangon in November
20 June 2016 – CommuniCast Myanmar will return for the third consecutive year in November 2016, supporting the country’s development across the ICT solutions, mobile, broadband, satellite and broadcasting markets.
The show – which will take place between Tuesday, November 15 and Thursday, November 17 in Yangon – has already seen 60 exhibitors sign up, following the success of CommuniCast 2015, which was attended by 120 companies and more than 2,500 delegates and visitors. CommuniCast 2016 will again be held at the Myanmar Event Park, which is Yangon’s largest international trade show venue.
Co-located with the Myanmar Computer Federation’s International ICT Exhibition and incorporating the Myanmar Satellite Forum, the event is a proven opportunity to conduct business in one of Asia’s most exciting markets.
“Myanmar is entering a new era of opportunity and it is a good time to engage with the new government to encourage the ICT economy to be at the forefront of their plans; education is key to the development of the economy and we are sure that ICT can assist in this prioritisation process,” said Min Zeyar Hlaing, Vice President of the Myanmar Computer Industry Association. “The ICT industry has only a handful of foreign companies competing in the country and this relatively low level of competition means this is a great opportunity for companies to enter the market early.”
The potential of the Myanmar market was demonstrated at this year’s CommunicAsia show in Singapore, with attendance from Myanmar being the fastest growing by country origin. A total of 327 visitors from Myanmar attended the combined CommunicAsia/BroadcastAsia event, including the newly appointed Union Minister of Transport and Communications His Excellency Thant Sin Maung.
“We are very pleased to be returning to Yangon for the third straight year and with 60 exhibitors already signed up, the show is going from strength to strength,” said Rupert Owen, Show Director for CommuniCast. “With some of the biggest players in the mobile, satellite and wireless industries attending, the event is a great opportunity to make the connections that will make the industry grow.”
