Interview with HK 2016 Competition Winner – Mr. Alex Lay, Information System Manager, Olympus

As the competition winner of the Referral Prize Draw of Hong Kong launch show back in May, Alex was invited to join in our sister event in Singapore on 12-13 October at Marina Bay Sands, with hotel stay at MBS and flights all inclusive.

“Cloud Expo Asia and Data Centre World are definitely the best and most representative platform for the industry in Asia. Compared with other conferences or exhibitions, they are very comprehensive with not only the product update from solution providers, but also a knowledge sharing and business networking. It’s rather a neutral environment.”

Alex spent two days visiting the Singapore shows with Cloud Expo Asia, Data Centre World Asia and Cloud Security Expo Asia three pillars. He added “The scale of this [Singapore] show is event bigger than the Hong Kong one. Both of them are in good quality with a good mixture of conference programmes and exhibition in cloud computing, infrastructure and smart city.”

Indeed we had twelve theatres with 300+ world-class speakers sharing on a wide range of topics, allowing visitors considerable options and high flexibility to choose from. Alex was excited “The topics here are not merely marketing-based but are very interesting sharing and I like the IOT sessions in particular! As an IT manager, security has always been the most important concern in any of our decisions in my company. Besides, our company is actually planning to build a data centre in Hong Kong within 5 years, and I can source more info now.”

“Undoubtedly CEA & DCW are able to meet the growing demand in North Asia, therefore, I highly recommend both events to my peers.”

Feeling jealous? YOU can be the next winner too! Just keep in touch and stay tuned – more show news is coming and you will know HOW & WHAT to win!


What did your peers say about Cloud Expo Asia Hong Kong?

Glen Carbone, Senior Engineer, Global Data Centers, Goldman Sachs
"This event provides us with a very good mix of vendors. I am impressed by its size and quality especially for a launch event. It’s good to see such a huge show in Hong Kong, and I will definitely be back next year!"

Raymond Lam, GTO Infrastructure & Shared Technology Services, Deutsche Bank
"It’s impressive to have a combined cloud and data centre event, as I can get updates across both topics. I particular enjoyed the panel session with Bernard Golden from Navica. It was very helpful for us who work in the finance industry. I highly recommend this show to the whole IT industry."

Charles Ma, Regional IT Manager, Versace Asia Pacific Limited
"Compared to other IT events, the scale of CEA & DCW are so much larger. This allows us to see more product demonstrations and meet more peers all at one event."

Kenneth Chung, Manager Technical Services, DCIM Implementation, HSBC
"I really appreciate the quality of the conference program – all of the sessions have been very informative and insightful."

Herman Lo, AVP, Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing Limited
"This is definitely a globally-integrated expo - you have the opportunity to meet with different experts from across the region."

Mike Au Yeung, IT Director, China Everbright Bank
"It is a huge and eye-opening expo! We do appreciate the arrangement from the organizer by providing the MTR tickets and the pre-print badges. For sure we will bring our team mates to join us next year."

Terence Liem, Senior IT Manager & Seng Hin Mak, Manager of Information of System and Technology, Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Center
"The proficiency level of this expo is very high. Solution providers and peers are very senior, and we have particularly enjoyed the cloud seminar sessions. We will definitely be bringing this knowledge back to Macau!"

Yun-hsiang Hsieh, Manager, China Development Industrial Bank
"My goal was to get the latest on technology trends and meet industry insiders. Cloud Expo Asia has allowed me to achieve this today!"

Manohar Chugh, MH, Chairman, Nisha Electronic Industries Limited
"I am a member of the Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce and sit on the board of directors helping SMEs. I hear concerns all the time about cloud adoption, security and IT cost savings so it has been really important to come here and learn first-hand about these challenges both from the conference sessions and from the providers. Now I feel more confident about supporting these SMEs innovate and grow."

Jimmy Ng, Data Centre Solutions Architect, Asia Pacific, CommScope
"It’s been excellent to listen directly to a government representative sharing his own data centre strategy. It gives great insight which is useful for other companies to learn from. I have attended many data centre shows across Asia but this is the first time Hong Kong has seen such a large industry event. I will definitely be coming back to the expo next year!"

Jacky Ip, Head of IT, Aedas Limited
"There has never been such a large scale IT event in Hong Kong. This expo showcases a lot of global exhibitors which enables the end-user to compare many solutions at one time, which makes procurement so much easier."

What did our speakers say about Cloud Expo Asia?

Henk ten Bos, CIO, Ageas Insurance
"I’m really impressed with the way the event has been introduced, its scale and the professional organisation. The issue here in Hong Kong is that there are so many IT events – you have to become selective, look for something new with a different edge, and check for quality of content. Cloud Expo Asia and Data Centre World achieves this and that’s why there are so many attendees. The services and solutions that are available here are extremely diverse, so it’s perfect for a wide range of job functions, from data centre experts to CIOs. It’s important to attend to make new contacts, exchange ideas and attend discussions."

Frank Law, Superintendent, Hong Kong Police Force
"This new event is an important addition to the Hong Kong technology sphere. Professionals can come here learn, share knowledge and encourage innovation in the community. I look forward to participating in the cloud security conference again next year at HKCEC."

Jabez Tan, Research Director, Data Centre Infrastructure, Structure Research
"Cloud Expo Asia is ahead of its time, and is the only event series that has successfully identified the convergence of the cloud, with hosting and data centre ecosystems. While it is easy to make a mess of an event that incorporates several market segments, Cloud Expo Asia has figured out a way to strike the perfect balance between the cloud and data centre segments. It manages to make both markets cohesive and yet distinct as these two worlds begin to collide as part of a rapidly maturing IT industry."

Philbert Shih, Managing Director, Structure Research
"Cloud Expo Asia has created a unique formula for bringing business development opportunities, networking and content together into a venue that is easily accessible and convenient. This is a must-attend event for movers and shakers in the cloud and data centre infrastructure industries."

What did our partners say about Cloud Expo Asia?

Wendy Alison Yung, Executive Director, Hong Kong Wireless Technology Industry Association (WTIA)
"Cloud Expo Asia and Data Centre World in Hong Kong is perhaps one of the most important business conferences and expo in North Asia dedicated to cloud & data centre technologies. We couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of the attendees and the event programme.  It’s one of the best networking platforms you can find in the region.  Where many similar events draw in very local audiences, this is an internationally-driven event for businesses looking to grow organically as well as expanding to different markets. Highly recommended & we look forward to next year already!"  

Nicole Wong, Director of Women & Youth Programmes, Hong Kong Computer Society and Assistant Systems Manager, Office of the Government Chief Information Officer
"Great expo with tremendous exhibitors, excellent speakers and marvellous logistic arrangement! One of the best ICT events held in Hong Kong in 2016! Glad to attend such a high quality expo in which most of the talents of the Hong Kong ICT industry gathered and exchanged strategic views!"

Angie Teh, Assistant Manager, Marketing, Frost & Sullivan, Asia Pacific, Frost & Sullivan
"Although this was the inaugural edition of Cloud Expo Asia & Data Centre World - Hong Kong, the conference was very well-organized and the team was pleased with the content and audience at the conference. We look forward to working with the Cloud Expo Team again soon."
