SCC President Gary Yeung expressed satisfaction over the event organization and city-wide promotion. He felt encouraged to receive Governor of Bangkok and head of Digital Economy Promotion Agency of Thailand at the SCC Pavilion. SCC and our exhibitors were excited to learn that Thailand is actively developing digital economy and smart city projects (please click here for details). As of July 2023, a total of 123 smart city proposals had been submitted, and 30 of them have passed the criteria and got the “Smart City Logo” from the government. These projects are badly in need of the latest smart city solutions and technologies. SCC will follow-up with depa to explore how HK technology companies can capture these opportunities.
Exhibitors of SCC pavilion expressed satisfaction over their participation; all of them received business enquiries on-the-spot. By participating in the two-day event, about 57% of SCC pavilion exhibitors said they could know more about the Thai market, another 57% said they could make a better marketing plan, while 43% of them believed they could establish business contacts there.
86% of SCC pavilion exhibitors found the duration of two-day show appropriate while the rest hoped it could be longer. All exhibitors expressed interest in joining similar events again.
