Victorian technology related organisations are invited to apply to participle in a targeted IIoT trade mission to Hong Kong, Taipei and Shenzhen for 13-18th Aug 2017. Applications now open.
IIoT is the next wave of digital transformation, with IIoT-related applications having the potential to revolutionise supply chains and entire industrial sectors and create efficiencies that will be game-changers for society and economies. The global market for IoT solutions and services is growing, with estimated spend of USD1.7 trillion in 2020 according to analyst firm IDC.
The cities of Hong Kong, Taipei and Shenzhen all have advanced and reliable ICT infrastructure, high broadband and mobile penetration rates, and excellent connectivity, which provides a solid platform for Victorian technology organisations to collaborate on infrastructure, industrial and consumer related projects. These cities have a number of IoT related initiatives including: Hong Kong’s Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) initiating a blueprint for smart city development, Taiwan’s “The Asia Silicon Valley Development Plan” initiated by the National Development Council, and Shenzhen being recognised as a hotbed of entrepreneurship and innovation – touted as ‘China’s Silicon Valley’.
Being part of this exciting Trade Mission will provide you with access to tailored business matching meetings with potential partners, networking forums, site visits and market briefings on the IIoT ecosystem in each city. Trade Victoria is working with key IIoT focussed stakeholders in each city to co-organise this program.
Applications are sought from Victorian organisations with IIoT solutions in the areas of (but not limited to) smart living, smart transport, smart building, intelligent security, water and energy management, and intelligent manufacturing.
Please note that places on this mission are limited.
Applications close COB Wednesday 5 July.
