It’s about time that South East Asia, home to 600 million people, gets its own web industry event. The Open Web Asia conference, which is going to be held in Kuala Lumpur on July 13-14, is the region’s first of its size: no less than 350 attendees are expected – I myself will be at the conference (as a speaker), too.
Supported by MSC Malaysia Innotech (an initiative from the Malaysian government), the general theme of the event will be “Web Innovation In Asia”.
Some of the topics to be discussed are:
- Overview of the Asian web landscape
- State of the venture capital industry in Asia
- Social media strategies of foreign companies in Asia
- Why millions of Asians access the web through their phones
plus there are a lot of other, non-Asia related topics on the agenda, too.
Here’s the (tentative) schedule for day 1 and 2, and here’s the (pretty impressive) speaker list.
