Thailand’s leading organizations partner up for Corporate Innovation Summit 2020


RISE partners up with Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa), Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association (RSTA), The Board of Investment of Thailand (BOI), Microsoft Thailand, VISA Thailand, SEA Group, Amazon Web Services (Thailand), and many more organizations for Corporate Innovation Summit 2020 this 1 - 3 April to establish Bangkok as a destination for business and innovation in Southeast Asia.

Corporate Innovation Summit 2020 (CIS 2020) is Asia’s largest experiential conference where 20,000+ CEOs and top executives from across the globe, along with innovation experts, fast-growing startups, accelerators, and investors from every industry gather to acquire new mindsets, skill sets, and toolsets for executing breakthrough innovations through more than 240 workshops and over 100 keynotes and panels run by world-class thought leaders. With the bold mission to drive 1% of GDP for Thailand and Southeast Asia, RISE, a leading corporate innovation powerhouse, envisions CIS 2020 as a gateway to Southeast Asia’s market, the new promising destination for business and innovation with its $100-billion-internet-economy opportunity.

“I do believe that here in Southeast Asia, it’s not disruption, but rather a collaboration that drives the exponential economic growth. For CIS, even though we have started it, but we never meant to finish it alone. Our goal is to mark CIS as the flagship conference for Southeast Asia, and this will succeed only if we are able to pull the efforts of win-win collaborations among key players within the region and make an impact out of these collaborations together,” said Dr. Kid Supachai Parchariyanon, CEO & Co-founder of RISE, the host of CIS 2020.

Dr. Nattapon. Nimman Patcharin, Head of Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa), which has supported CIS for two consecutive years, said that “[a]t depa, we believe in bringing innovation to drive economic growth for the country. The more people are able to execute innovation successfully, the more people can get access and benefit from innovation. With CIS 2020, we expect to see more innovators working for different industries, yet toward the same goal - the impact for all.”

Chanikarn Pronanun, Deputy Managing Director - Marketing & Operations for Microsoft Thailand, said, "Microsoft and RISE share the same ambition to empower every person and every organization to achieve more. Our support for Corporate Innovation Summit reflects the commitment we have for Thai businesses and startups - from enhancing the capabilities of each startup to drive business innovation that impact the overall growth of the nation's economy. Our world-class innovations will bolster startups with enhanced skills and technical capabilities, allowing them to go from strength to strength and achieve breakthrough on the global stage. For CIS 2020, we will be on the show floor together with top startups on our Azure platform, and we look forward to seeing the impact that our combined contributions can make for Thailand."

To ignite the spark of business innovation in Bangkok, CIS 2020 will be held at Ratchaprasong District at the heart of Bangkok, with full support from Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association (RSTA). “We aim to reinforce the Ratchaprasong District as one of the world’s preeminent business, shopping and tourism destinations, we are contented that CIS 2020 will bring more than 20,000 attendees from across the globe to experience this vigorous business vibes at Ratchaprasong,’ said Chai Srivikorn, The President of Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association.

Dr. Kid concluded that “I’m really grateful to see many collaborations brought together during Corporate Innovation Summit 2020. We all are looking forward to welcoming and hosting CEOs and top executives from across the globe with the most outstanding experience at CIS 2020.”
