New Conference Production Company to Enlist Massive Mobile Industry Players
Neoedge sets sights on becoming top producer of Telecom Events in ASIA
Launches its third telecom event: Mobile Cloud Computing ASIA 2010

Neoedge Pte. Ltd. recently announced plans of bringing in more telecom related events and expanding operations in the Middle East and North Africa in line with its vision to become Asia’s top conference producer of Telecom Events. At an interview during the formal launch of its third telecom event in Asia, Neoedge’s Project Manager and SPEX Head Vida Paz said her company’s plans to produce summits, trainings and workshops in the MENA region will be coming in the next five to six months.
“We hope to become the Telecom Conference of choice for the telecommunications world by offering the newest products and conference formats with the ample opportunity for learning, discussing and networking,� said Paz.

Neoedge has chosen Singapore as its corporate headquarters in the Asia-Pacific region, where it plans to further grow operations in countries like South Africa, Japan and Dubai while maintaining its established presence in China and other parts of the region.
“Neoedge aims to fast track its investments in facilities, technologies and people,� said Paz during a brief presentation during the launch.

The new location of the corporate office at Commerce Point Building at Raffles Place, Singapore was chosen because of its goal of expanding the company and likewise be at the central business district of the Lion City.

Notably, the third Telecom Event: Mobile Cloud Computing ASIA 2010 unveiled is one of the company’s most comprehensive product, having a line up of unequalled speakers and panelists. It also has a very interesting Pre-Conference Workshop to be led by Orange Scape and in collaboration with Microsoft, Google and Amazon Web Services. The conference will happen on the 14th-15th July at Carlton Hotel, Singapore.

Paz also disclosed details about other future conventions and workshops on SS7 and SIGTRAN in the MENA Region, but assured that Neoedge has been actively researching for other potential locations, including the United Kingdom, and would likely produce a new one before 2011.
Neoedge, which began operations in Singapore in 2008, currently has half a hundred active employees. Already, several slots in its new office are set to be occupied by incoming sales agents, marketing managers and conference producers. Recruitment, however, is still ongoing.

Paz was keen to point out that Neoedge emphasizes a learning culture built around simplicity aimed at fostering the professional growth of its employees. She pointed out that her current position as Project Manager for Telecom events came in only months after she joined as a senior sales executive, adding that such a case was not unusual in the company.
