Connected PNG commenced its Technology Summit on 7th March at Stanley Hotel and Suites starting off with 10 exhibitions and showcasing globally-recognized technology companies including Real Wear, Eset, Stulz, Signiflow, Seagate, Amazon Web Services, Digicel PNG, Schneider Electric, Pandit and DJI & Emesent.
The exhibitors are mostly Australian-based companies doing business in Papua New Guinea under a partnership. Some are new to the Papua New Guinea market, and the rest are using Connected PNG as its vendor for purchasing specialized technology.
The showcase ranged from internet cabling and electrical battery storage to computer cooling systems, drone technology, website infrastructure framework, telecommunications, and many more.
Mr. Laine Kidner, Chief Executive Officer of Connected South Pacific, was present at the exhibition and was happy to see the technology showcase available for users.
He stated that during the COVID pandemic, operations had stopped, but the companies are now ready to set up operations again in 2023.
"Most of the equipment available on showcase is really expensive, and we are looking for a safe, secure, and convenient location to set up a productive operation," stated Mr. Kidner.
Connected PNG specializes in providing the best leading technology in the world for Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands to stay up to date with the digital world.
The summit continued with the exhibition and trade show and a keynote panel on UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), Data Centres, and Digital Transformation, and ends 9th March with Sponsored Technical Workshops.
