Upcoming Technology and Innovation Events in Malaysia
In one of our previous articles, we’ve discussed why Malaysia was among the best countries for blockchain technology startups. Along with Singapore, Malaysia, and its vibrant capital city, Kuala Lumpur, are becoming a significant spot for technology and innovation development. That’s one of the reasons why organizations choose Malaysia as a host country for conferences, events, and summits. There are many of them, and some are must-attends as they give useful insights to entrepreneurs, professionals, tech enthusiasts, and citizens. In this article, we will present the four upcoming must-attend technology and innovation events soon to take place in Malaysia.
