The SME Conference will feature speakers with inspiring stories of successes whose big ideas and innovation successes have made their mark in businesses and societies.
It will put the spotlight on enterprising men and women who used creativity and innovation to make transformative changes in addressing old and emerging market needs. Their inspiring stories will be the spotlight of each session – highlighting the elements that motivated them to create and introduce a new product and/or service in the market, the factors that helped overcome challenges encountered, and the key lessons learned to succeed.
All of the sessions will focus on the unique insights and experiences of industry movers, shakers and ‘disruptors’ in succinct anecdotal storytelling, or conversations that aim to inspire.
An exhibit of innovative and game-changing products and services will be featured during the Summit. It will showcase 25-30 world-class, cutting-edge business solutions and other groundbreaking technological advances from across the APEC region. This covers all fields and sectors from agriculture, creatives, manufacturing, services, finance, science & technology, gaming, and others.
A special side event will feature 20-min scheduled talks by Exhibitors designed to demonstrate the innovations in their products and creations and give a unique opportunity for exhibit guests to give valuable feedback, exchange ideas and create network in a more personalized environment.
