SMART NATION INNOVATIONS WEEK
Smart Nation Innovations Week from 29 April to 4 May 2017 will welcome more than 20,000 local and international guests across different communities to congregate in Singapore to share and learn about disruptive tech, look into the future impact of technology and celebrate the success of young innovators across Asia. Comprising pillar events – innovfest unbound, Tech Saturday (Upsized!), futurenow, convergence, arise and fintech360, this innovation series is spearheaded by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) as a Smart Nation initiative.
innovfest unbound draws key players from the global tech ecosystem – businesses, start-ups, investors, academics, government organisations and the media to connect and share insights. From virtual and augmented reality, robotics, high-powered computing analytics to other disruptive innovations, this event showcases Singapore as a creative hub for emerging technologies that bear potential to change the world. It also hosts the track events of futurenow, convergence, arise and fintech360.
Tech Saturday (Upsized!) is a play-and-learn carnival for everyone, from kids to the elderly, to tinker with new technologies and be inspired by the many possibilities of future tech and media advancements, and how it will affect the way we live, work and play.
The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) will develop a vibrant, world-class infocomm media sector that drives the economy, connects people, bonds communities and powers Singapore's Smart Nation vision. IMDA does this by developing talent, strengthening business capabilities, and enhancing Singapore's ICT and media infrastructure. IMDA also regulates the telecommunications and media sectors to safeguard consumer interests while fostering a pro-business environment. IMDA also enhances Singapore’s data protection regime through the Personal Data Protection Commission.

Singapore strives to be a Smart Nation, in which our people are empowered by technology to lead meaningful and fulfilled lives. By harnessing the power of networks, data and info-comm technologies, we endeavour to improve living, create economic opportunity and build a closer community. We have the conducive environment to experiment, prototype and deploy innovative solutions that can be shared with other global cities. It is an exciting journey, and we want your ideas to help us realise our vision. For more information, please visit www.smartnation.sg.
