QNET Malaysia participated in the prestigious ASEAN Biztech Expo and Conference 2017 as the proud Lanyard Sponsor, and hosted an interactive booth that really shone among all the exhibitors at the event if footfall was anything to go by. Officiated by the Minister for International Trade and Industry Dato Sri Mustapa Mohamed, the two-day conference themed Bridging Borders Through Business was held in Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and featured technology experts from a myriad of industries.
As a sponsor of the event, QNET also showcased a number of our world-class quality global products at the booth, including EDG3, Physio Radiance, Defy, HomePure and the QNETCity watch, a luxury watch created as an homage to our partnership with Manchester City Football Club.
With 2017 being the 25th anniversary of ASEAN-India relations, the conference was aimed at strengthening existing trade cooperation between ASEAN and the Indian business community. The event also aimed at establishing the importance of applying and integrating technology into business, and seek to bridge the never-ending opportunities in the ever-changing business and technology world.
The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) Secretary General Dr A Didar Singh said India and Malaysia moved to a better level of economic and business collaboration. “In today’s event, we have bought over 20 delegates who are also exhibitors, including innovators and foreign medium enterprises, and this is the real way forward. In this platform, they connect with Malaysian and ASEAN companies, which will see partnerships developed from all different aspects.”
QNET Chief Operating Officer Malcolm Chiu in his talk said that companies must be ready to take on digital disruptions. “If you want to take your company into the new digital world, you must have the intense passion and unwavering mindset that says ‘We MUST change!’ instead of ‘We can’t!’” he said touching on Transformation Intensity. He also added that the core of business transformation is the business model. “Look at Uber or Airbnb, they have no assets. If your mind is merely thinking about specific items like website design, it's not good enough. You need to rethink your business model.”
