The organiser of CommuniCast Myanmar 2016 has announced the show will move to a new location and take place later than planned this year due to changes in the availability of the main exhibition venue.
CommuniCast Myanmar 2016 will now take place from Tuesday, December 6 to Thursday, December 8 2016, while the associated Myanmar Satellite Forum, will be held on Wednesday, December 7.
The new venue for the combined event is the Novotel Yangon Max, in the centre of Myanmar, which will provide the opportunity to stage a professional trade show of 90 companies and the Myanmar Satellite Forum in one location.
Last year’s CommuniCast was attended by more than 2,500 delegates and visitors. This year, more than 80 exhibitors have already signed up to take part in CommuniCast Myanmar 2016, with topics including ICT solutions, mobile, broadband, satellite and broadcasting set to be discussed at the co-located Myanmar Satellite Forum.
Since the event was launched in 2014, mobile penetration levels in the country have grown from close to 10% to 55% by the middle of 2016. This continues to grow rapidly, with 4G services available in Yangon. In the current market, opportunities are driven by the growing mobile enterprise, satellite & broadband services and broadcasting technologies.
