BANGKOK--27 Apr--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Asian Utility Week, a brand belonging to Clarion Events, takes place at Impact Arena, Exhibition & Convention Center, Bangkok, Thailand on 24-25 May 2017. Asian Utility Week is a large scale expo with conference designed specifically for Asian utilities who seek to transform their utility business model to include digital enablers. It is known as Asia's leader in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and features other innovations designed specifically to improve the customer's experience of energy services. The Digital Utility and Customer focused themes are attracting interest from technology innovators from across the world -- both start-ups and established utility leaders. The speaker line-up features over 180 energy technology specialists including:

Samuel Tan, Chief Digital Officer, SP Group, Singapore
Datuk Seri Azman, CEO, Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Malaysia
Dexter Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer, Meralco Energy, Philippines
Waiboon Chanchio, CIO, Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, Thailand
Hiroshi Okamoto, Managing Executive Officer, Tokyo Electric Power Company, Japan
Song Il-keun, VP, Leader of Energy New Business Lab, Korea Electric Power Research Institute, Korea
Hirokazu Yamaguchi, EGM, Global Innovation & Investment, Tokyo Electric Power Company, Japan
According to the Event Director, Roderic Mclauchlan:

Many utilities see the digital revolution as a threat to their traditional business model, but massive opportunities await those able to transform themselves ahead of the curve. The digital disruptor model is now becoming common in the utility sector and those Asian countries with deregulated energy markets are seeing the rise of the online energy retailer. This is forcing the incumbents to revamp their own digital channel strategies to stay competitive. We also find that social media is having a major impact on customer service strategies as disgruntled customers can effectively vent their frustrations to a large audience. While smart meters are still fairly new to Asia, the business case is now well understood and with the flood of data coming from those meters and the IoT strategies across the enterprise, those utilities with digital models are now reaping the benefits of lower operating costs and improved responsiveness to market change. Asian Utility Week is now free for both energy service companies and vendors to this sector.
