-Emerging technologies to feature at New Startup Alley, Cyber Security Zone and bigger AR/VR segment

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — As Asia continues down the path of digital transformation and its cities get increasingly connected, CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT 2017 will add brand new feature zones to address the growing need for data security and the budding startup culture in the region. In addition, the event will also see a bigger augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) segment as the show grows to occupy the whole of Marina Bay Sands for the first time.

With the Cybersecurity Market Report predicting worldwide spending on cyber security to top US$1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021, Asia seeing a record US$23.4 billion in startup funding in the second quarter of 20161, and worldwide revenues for the AR and VR market expected to reach US$162 billion in 20202, the new zones are timely additions to the event that will be held from 23 – 25 May 2017, at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

Key trending technologies and network infrastructure that are the pillars of smart cities, businesses and lifestyles, such as borderless broadband, Internet of Things, cloud and data-centric solutions, satellite communications and enterprise mobility, will continue to be featured prominently at CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT 2017.

“As cities and their populations become smarter and more connected, the amount of data they produce also increases. As reported by Cisco Systems’ latest Visual Networking Index, the Asia Pacific region will drive 45 per cent of the world’s mobile data traffic by 2020, and global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next five years with the number of devices connected to IP networks exceeding three times the global population during this same period,” said Victor Wong, Project Director for Communications Events at organiser Singapore Exhibition Services. “CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT will provide first-hand access to the latest in constantly evolving technology and new disruptive innovations needed to ensure the sustainable growth of smart city ecosystems and the security of data that flows through them.”

Innovations at CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT 2017

Exhibiting at NXT@CommunicAsia — the event’s showcase of transformative technology, is CryptoGuard, a Swedish developer of content protection. The company, which has experienced substantial growth in recent years, will be demonstrating its DRM platform and new OTT solution CryptoLITETM as well as its proven advanced CAS platform.

“We are expanding our markets with a strong focus in Asia, and having recently established a sales and support office in New Delhi, India, exhibiting at CommunicAsia seemed inevitable in our progress,” said Hannu Vunnel, Marketing Director at CryptoGuard. “We are looking forward to further strengthening our position in the Asian market, and at CommunicAsia2017, CryptoGuard hopes to be recognised by major players as a leading innovator for content security.

In today’s volatile business climate, there is a pressing need for digital transformation across vertical industries. The event puts a big focus on technology to enable smarter businesses, and allow visitors to learn about and source solutions that are aimed at improving efficiencies and revenue.

Also returning to CommunicAsia for the third time is Aarenet AG, which provides encrypted WebRTC audio and video conferencing in HD quality for telecom service providers. The company will be introducing its enhanced Cloud PBX solutions including a Cloud Contact Centre, and a host of other enhancements to existing products and services.

“Aarenet AG first exhibited at CommunicAsia2015, where we received great success in business development activities for our company,” said Bao Vo, Regional Director at Aarenet AG. “We strongly believe that CommunicAsia is the premier infocomm tradeshow in the Asia Pacific region due to its excellent infrastructure in Singapore, its modern facilities, and the fact that the event attracts patrons from almost all carriers and telecom service providers regionally. We are looking forward to exhibit at CommunicAsia2017 and the new prospects it will bring.”

SatComm, which boasts Asia’s largest gathering of more than 160 satellite communications companies, is another integral part of the event. Taking place on Level 1 of the Marina Bay Sands, SatComm will showcase satellite solutions that will enable upcoming technologies such as 4K and IoT to support smart city developments.

CommunicAsia2017 Summit

With the heightened pressure and push for seamless integration of technology, analytics and connectivity, the CommunicAsia2­017 Summit is set to augment and ultimately revolutionise today’s entire ecosystem. Taking place throughout the event, the Summit will cover topics such as the Internet of Things, Security of Things, Smart Cities, Digital Talent Analytics, and Broadband.

As usual, BroadcastAsia2017 will run alongside CommunicAsia2017, but at the refurbished Suntec Singapore. This change in location will allow both shows to grow and accommodate even more exhibitors and technology. Regular shuttle buses will be available to transport visitors to and from both shows.

The award, which was presented at the annual Gold Standard Awards ceremony in Hong Kong yesterday evening, honours excellence in the development of a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), good governance or sustainability project that strengthens corporate reputation, and demonstrates an ongoing commitment to sustainable business practices. 2016 marks the third time that FrieslandCampina has received a Gold Standard Award, having also won in the Best Stakeholder Engagement category in 2014.

Our Drink.Move.BeStrong movement continues to demonstrate that by taking a collaborative approach, we can move forward in our quest to address the rise of non-communicable diseases through the promotion of good nutrition. We accept this award with great pride, and with an awareness that good corporate citizenship is only possible because we work with other stakeholders to create shared value for all involved.”

Mr. Hendro Poedjono, Corporate Affairs Director, Consumer Products Asia, FrieslandCampina, said:We were able to win this award because of the support we have received from our partners, which has enabled us to share our vision of ‘Nourishing by Nature’ with the community in the region. We are immensely grateful to all of them for their support, and  I know that together we can further drive positive change in the health of people across Asia, providing lasting and meaningful impact for the many communities that we work in.”

Visa Exemption, Attractive Travel Packages set to Increase Singaporean Visitors to Myanmar

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE and YANGON, Myanmar  /PRNewswire/ — The number of Singaporean travelers to Myanmar is predicted to increase by 35 percent as a result of the 30-day visa exemption for citizens of both countries. To showcase the Golden Land’s diverse attractions, Myanmar Tourism Marketing (MTM) is leading a delegation of Myanmar hospitality and travel companies to Singapore, coinciding with the visit of State Counsellor Aung San Su Kyi.

A part of the Myanmar Tourism Federation, MTM aims to promote Myanmar as a sustainable tourism destination. The Singapore roadshow features a high-level business matching meeting among some 50 Myanmar and Singapore hospitality & travel companies today. It also serves as a lead up to the first Myanmar Tourism Festival in Singapore in January 2017.

Myanmar Minister of Hotel & Tourism H.E. Mr U Ohn Maung says: “I do expect a 35 percent increase of Singaporeans travelling to Myanmar if we successfully promote the variety of tourist attractions the country has to offer. Myanmar is safe, excellent to travel the whole year round, and Myanmar food is certainly something to come back for over and over again.”

Effective 1 December 2016, Singaporeans travelling to Myanmar for under 30 days, either for business or leisure, need not apply for a visa. The visa exemption between the two countries was announced on 1 June 2016 during the visit of Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to Myanmar.

“Given the proximity between Myanmar and Singapore and the deep ties between the two nations, which go back 50 years with the launch of bilateral diplomatic relations, such closeness will translate into strong growth of two-way tourism and stronger people-to-people relations,” says MTM Chairperson May Myat Mon Win.

“We have witnessed a surge of Singaporean travelers and look forward to this growing. We’re on a mission to show the world what this hidden gem called Myanmar has to offer; and in doing so, we’d like to dispel some myths about the country. It’s not true that you can only visit Myanmar during the dry season. In fact, Myanmar’s best kept secret is the green season from June till September,” she added.

Home to some of the most remarkable sights and cultural experiences in Southeast Asia, Myanmar is steadily establishing itself as a popular destination that’s safe and readily accessible any time of the year.

MTM is poised to facilitate improvements to and diversify existing travel options in Myanmar to support the Myanmar government’s effort to tap into the large pool of Singaporean travelers. MTM is also working closely with tourism players from both countries to create travel packages that will make Myanmar even more attractive to Singaporeans.

In 2015, there were 43,000 Singaporeans who traveled to Myanmar. As of August 2016, more than 32,000 Singaporeans have visited the country, an increase of 18 percent compared to the same period last year.

The main destinations for Singaporeans traveling to Myanmar are Yangon and Mandalay, where there are direct flights from Singapore. While leisure travelers continue to rise, most visits to Myanmar from Singapore are for business, a testament to the strong trade relations between the two countries.

Based on figures from the Myanmar Directorate of Investment and Company Administration (DICA), Singapore is currently the second largest investor in Myanmar after China with over USD$13 billion in foreign direct investment.

MTM Executive Committee member Edwin Briels, who has lived in Myanmar for more than 15 years, shares, “Whether it is for business or pleasure, there is so much to see and do in Myanmar. Business visitors who come seeking opportunities in this new market typically set foot in cities like Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw. We encourage all visitors to venture out and see more of the country’s treasured spots — the amazing temples of Bagan, the majestic Inle Lake, pristine beaches and breathtaking highlands. Most of all, come to Myanmar to experience the warmth and generosity of the people and a culture unlike any other.”

Capella Hotel Group Asia and Pierre Gagnaire Make Joint Debut In Mainland China with “Comptoir Pierre Gagnaire” at Capella Shanghai, Jian Ye Li

leave a comment »

PRNewswire/ — Capella Hotel Group Asia and illustrious culinary icon Mr. Pierre Gagnaire are pleased to announce their joint debut in Mainland China. Comptoir Pierre Gagnaire, a new concept by Mr. Gagnaire, will be located at Capella Shanghai in the cultural preservation zone of Xuhui District, Shanghai. The French brasserie and all-villa urban resort are part of the Jian Ye Li estate, which is the last remaining cluster of “shikumen” architecture with history dating back to the 1930s. Capella Shanghai and Comptoir Pierre Gagnaire are scheduled to open in March 2017.

Lauded as the “Best Chef in the World 2015” by his industry peers according to French magazine Le Chef, Mr. Gagnaire celebrated 50 years of creativity and success in the kitchen this year. The atlas of Pierre Gagnaire spans 12 restaurants globally with a total of 13 Michelin stars among them. Driven by his mission statement “Facing tomorrow but respectful of yesterday”, the cuisine of Mr. Gagnaire is his means of expression, replacing words with culinary works of art. In the kitchen, he transforms raw ingredients into a symphony of flavors, textures and temperatures delivered with emotion.

“The idea behind Comptoir Pierre Gagnaire is an echo to the 1930s. It sends my message of warmth, quality and modesty as a tribute to the era. The place has to be joyful, comfortable and easily accessible. It is out of the question that it becomes a closed and exclusive place!” said Mr. Gagnaire as he described his refreshing new concept.

Shanghai is one of the world’s most dynamic cities offering a rich cultural heritage coupled with all the amenities of an international lifestyle. The Pierre Gagnaire philosophy aligns so well with our Capella Canon. Both our organizations demonstrate a common passion and true desire to create memorable experiences for our guests. Pierre’s brilliance as a Michelin-starred chef, combined with his gracious humility, make him a natural partner for Capella Shanghai,” said Mr. Nicholas M. Clayton, Chief Executive Officer of Capella Hotel Group Asia.

Capella Shanghai, Jian Ye Li, is the only all-villa urban resort in the city. A rare architectural heritage, the hotel offers discerning guests the authentic experience of Shanghai’s romantic past. The estate comprises 55 villas, 40 residential apartments as well as The Gallery, which is a collection of restaurants and lifestyle brands.

Helmed by Mr. Gagnaire’s prodigy, Romain Chapel, Comtpoir Pierre Gagnaire will open in March 2017 together with Capella Shanghai, Jian Ye Li. It comprises a 70-seat restaurant, 50-seat bar as well as retail bakery at The Gallery. To complement the residential lifestyle of this charming neighborhood, Comptoir Pierre Gagnaire will cater for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.

فرانسیسی میگزین لی شیف کے مطابق اپنے صنعتی ساتھیوں کی جانب سے “دنیا کا بہترین باورچی 2015ء” قرار دیے گئے جناب گاگنیئر رواں سال باورچی خانے میں تخلیق و کامیابی کے 50 سال منائیں گے۔ پیری گاگنیئر کی اٹلس 12 عالمی ریستورانوں پر پھیلی ہوئی ہے جن کے کل 13 مچلین اسٹارز ہیں۔ اپنے مقصد “کل کا سامنا لیکن گزرے کل کا احترام” سے تحریک پاتے ہوئے جناب گاگنیئر کے کھانے ان کے اظہار کا ذریعہ ہیں، جس میں الفاظ کی جگہ کھانے کا آرٹ لیتا ہے۔ باورچی خانے میں وہ خام اجزا کو ذائقوں، بناوٹ اور درجہ حرارت کی ہم سازی میں بدل دیتے ہیں جو جذبات کے ساتھ پیش کیے جاتے ہیں۔

“کومپٹوئر پیری گاگنیئر کے پس پردہ خیال 1930ء کی دہائی کی ایک گونج ہے۔ یہ اس دور کے لیے میرا گرم جوشی، معیار اور عاجزی کا خراج تحسین پر مشتمل پیغام بھیجتا ہے۔ مقام کو خوش و خرم، آرام دہ اور آسان رسائی کا حامل ہونا چاہیے۔ اس پر کوئی سوال ہی نہیں کہ یہ بند اور خاص مقام ہے!” جناب گاگنیئر نے اپنے تازہ بہ تازہ نئے خیال کو بیان کرتے ہوئے کہا۔

This year’s LANDMARK Christmas Circus display represents a delightfully surreal, fantasy story of astonishing performers and a little girl. Santa Paws is struggling to learn his juggling, until a little girl who helps him believe in his skills. The animated display of animal friends and the little girl are celebrating the wonder of Christmas, demonstrating that drawing on their own ‘inner strength’ opens up an exciting world of possibilities. The whimsical and fantastical performing activities represent finding your own ‘inner strength’ and being inspired by the support and belief of others.

The stunning installation, created by an international team of artistic collaborators including designers, animatronic experts and set builders, at LANDMARK ATRIUM and across LANDMARK’s iconic buildings, is based on delightful scenes of Santa Paws and his friends created by renowned French illustrator Eric Giriat.

The installation features over 100 figurines, powered by animatronics and mechanical ingenuity, that burst to life every 30 minutes, as the talented characters inspire visitors to LANDMARK by performing the most amazing feats, demonstrating the wonder that anything is possible by believing in your own inner strength. The giraffes show that by helping the monkeys, the greatest adventures can begin with a simple act of friendship. Our playful little bunnies know that to put on a great show, it’s all about teamwork. And flying with balloons, the brave hippo uses all his courage to spin spectacular somersaults to wow everyone who comes to see him.

In LANDMARK CHATER, you can discover an authentic popcorn cart, dating from 1893, built by the original US food truck pioneers C. Cretors and Company.

In keeping with the Christmas spirit of giving, LANDMARK is supporting the children of Make-A-Wish® Hong Kong in different ways. Visitors to LANDMARK can write down their own special Christmas wishes and send wishes to 3 children in need by filling in a special LANDMARK Circus ticket. By inserting the special tickets into the ‘Wishing Machine’, Santa Claus will help you discover your inner strength and make your Christmas wish come true.

Visitors can also buy special Christmas souvenirs including tote bags, LANDMARK Circus character plush-toys and boxes of unique circus chocolates, at the Circus store at LANDMARK ALEXANDRA, with all the proceeds donated to the charity.

Children can also discover their own talent for performing by trying their own circus skills at the juggling workshops at LANDMARK ATRIUM on December 17, 18, 23 and 24.

Christmas shopping experiences can be enjoyed by everyone visiting LANDMARK this festive season in LANDMARK’s 208 fine stores and restaurants. Spend over HK$10,000 and more to receive exquisite LANDMARK gift certificates with values up to HK$26,000.
