Western Digital has an extensive storage solutions portfolio and with this bring the largest scale cloud & data centre exhibition in Singapore and ASEAN, it is important for us to have a presence here. With the Significant representation of overseas delegates other than Singapore-based delegates, this allows us to reach out a mass group audience in one location.
    APeC Channel Marketing, Western Digital
  • We’ve met a good mix of new prospects and existing customers over the two days. There were many relevant questions posed by the delegates, attesting to the immense interest the show has generated for us leading up to the show.
    Marketing – South East Asia and India, Splunk
  • Through Cloud Expo Asia, we get new prospects, lead generation and a lot of brand exposure. Across these two days, it’s been very exciting and we’re already looking forward to next year!
    Marketing Manager, Netpluz Asia Pte Ltd
  • Conferences like these at Cloud Expo Asia are always exciting because not only we have a chance to hear about the latest best practices and developments, and also reconnect with peers, clients and partners. I would love to be back at Cloud Expo Asia again!
    Director, Fintech & Crypto, PwC Singapore
  • As the COO in one of the biggest insurance companies in Japan, I’ve arranged my team to take turn to come visit across these two days to get the latest industry knowledge. Because of my role, I am particularly interested in the risk management and security sessions. What we’re appreciated the most is that we can source a variety of content at one place, including solution providers, end-users and those institutions [IASA, ISC2 etc.]. It is very comprehensive.
    COO, Tokio Marine Insurance Group
  • I’ve never visited an event of such massive scale featuring some of the most amazing brands and speakers here. I learnt a lot from attending the sessions like blockchain, digitisation, logistics and customer experience. I am very impressed with the breadth of the topics covered all under one roof over two days. I’ve also met many new suppliers I’ve never knew before and got to establish contact with them now. Coming to this event has given me so much value.
    Founder, All about Supply Chain
