Asia-Pacific Information Technology Summit


An in-depth look at Asia’s wireless frontier is one facet of the 4th annual Asia-Pacific Information Technology Summit, to be held November 16-17 at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco.

With over 170 million mobile subscribers regionally, the Asia-Pacific is expected to be a world leader in the burgeoning mobile commerce market. A panel discussion featuring industry leaders will discuss mobile commerce trends in Asia including its applications and where it will impact most.

Media are invited to attend this panel discussion and the entire Asia-Pacific IT Summit program. This Summit, organized by the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC), is an exclusive gathering of high-level tech executives, government ministers, and economic policy writers and academics.

The main theme of the event is Asia’s rising centers of technology entrepreneurship, how they are evolving, and how they conform to or diverge from the Silicon Valley model.

This year’s Chairman of the Summit, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, leads a list of technology leaders from the U.S. and Asia-Pacific economies that will address the gathering.

Other speakers include: Prof. John Hennessy, President, Stanford University; Charles Giancarlo, SVP, Cisco Systems; Robert LaRussa, Undersecretary for International Trade, U.S. Department of Commerce; Arjun Malhotra, Chairman & CEO, Techspan; Steven Jurvetson, Managing Director, Draper Fisher Jurvetson; Derek Williams, SVP Asia-Pacific, Oracle Corporation; and Greg Papadopoulos, SVP & CTO, Sun Microsystems.
