Over the past 2 weeks Dr Michael Wilkinson concluded a series of trade missions to the APAC region, sponsored by the Department of international Trade (DIT) and Innovate UK.
The Singapore Health Tech Mission and Futures Cities Mission to Australia was a extraordinary opportunity to showcase AVATR to a panel of government officials, corporate representatives, potential investors and business platforms in the region. It also attracted significant media coverage, including an article in Forbes Magazine and a notable mention in The Enquirer.
Meanwhile, in China, Dr Jaspal Peter Sahota attended the 1st Global Expert Summit (GCES) in Ningbo, as well as the Shaanxi British Technology Industry Project Promotion Conference in Xi'an. Here, AVATR attracted extensive coverage in the local media, including a piece in the Sina News.
Following the conference, key local incubators and corporates liaised with Dr. Sahota, paving the way for significant partnerships and collaborations in the future.
In London this week, Aymeric Teulon was invited by the China British Business Council (CBBC) to present AVATR to a delegation from the Guiyang Hi-tech Committee. The committee is the main organising body for the Guiyang Big Data Expo, which will take place between 26th – 29th May. The Guiyang Big Data Expo is China’s main national level event for the big data industry, attracting 20,000 visitors from over 60 countries. Large company delegations from the UK attended the Expo in both 2016 and 2017, and CBBC/DIT is planning to organise a delegation for this year’s event in May.
This kind of exposure confirms a massive interest in our user-centric, device-agnostic AI and machine learning technology - especially when it puts the user squarely at the centre of their own digital world.
But this is just the start…
