EmTech is a showcase for emerging technologies with the greatest potential to change our lives. The event is also an access point to the most innovative people and companies in the world. "At MIT Technology Review we firmly believe that technology can solve big problems, increase productivity and expand human possibility," Jason Pontin, Editor in Chief and Publisher, MIT Technology Review.
Designed to inspire — EmTech is an opportunity to glimpse the future and begin to understand the technologies that matter and how they’ll change the face of business and drive the new global economy. “We’re at the beginning of the most rapid transformation ever seen by technology,” added Pontin.
Kathleen Kennedy, Chief Strategy Officer for MIT Technology Review said that the reason Singapore was chosen as the location for the first Southeast Asian edition of EmTech is that "Emtech is all about commercialization of new technologies. With a consistently high Innovation Index, Singapore is an essential destination for this conference. It has both the industry and scientific talent needed for success."
The conference host and moderator is Jason Pontin, Editor in Chief and Publisher of MIT Technology Review.
