Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) will launch the Malaysia Tech Month 2020 (MTM 2020) in November 2020, a month-long curation of the nation’s best digital and technology content and virtual experiences enabled by visionary leaders and courageous investors showcasing Malaysia’s world-class tech and digital innovation to local and global investors.
MTM 2020 connects the brightest minds in digital and tech, facilitating high-value networking opportunities between investors, corporates and entrepreneurs to exchange innovative ideas, new solutions and game changing technologies in the region’s fast growing digital economy.
MTM 2020 will drive MDEC’s aspiration to firmly establish Malaysia as the Heart of Digital ASEAN. It will reinforce Malaysia’s ambitions to be the regional digital powerhouse by nurturing emerging global champions to thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) with the aim of delivering shared prosperity for all Malaysians.
The three core themes in focus will be matching digital talents to industry demand, business digitalisation and securing new digital investments. The key objectives are to strengthen confidence in the country as a compelling digital and tech investment location and catalyse increased cross-border trade opportunities in the region.
MDEC will also be organising the sixth edition of Level Up KL, Southeast Asia’s games festival designed to connect, learn, inspire and celebrate video game-related cultures. One of the main highlights of Level up KL is the Level Up Play Day from Nov 16-29, which is a virtual game expo dedicated to recognize games as a cultural phenomenon that can bring positive impact through social, economic, political, environmental and technological aspects to the world.
Come and join the first virtual game expo experience with a lot of exciting activities, stage performance, cosplay shows, and freebie giveaways!
MDEC’s MTM 2020 is a considered curation of high-impact technology events and content, organised by MDEC in collaboration with industry partners and independent organisers.
