Media OutReach – 18 April 2021 – Leading global technology distributor and solutions provider Avnet Asia will host a virtual exhibition and conference series for its Korean and South Asian customers focused on the two dynamic growth fields of Battery Management Systems (BMS) and Industrial IoT (IIoT). Building on the success of last year’s “Avnet AI Cloud Exhibition and Conference”, the second instalment is targeted at engineers, product managers and R&D specialists, and will span more than one month from April 18 to May 20.
The event will feature cutting-edge technology trends in the realms of BMS and IIoT, spotlighting the prospects of smart manufacturing systems and the mass utilization of alternative energy. Visitors will be able to visit interactive booths and view demonstration videos on the latest products and solutions from Avnet and its partners. Two conferences on BMS and IIoT will be held on April 21 and on April 28 respectively, during which partners will deliver live webinars followed by Q&A sessions.
“Avnet is committed to collaborate with like-minded partners to contribute to the development and sustainability of the smart manufacturing and energy ecosystems,” said Tan Aik Hoon, Regional President of Avnet South Asia, Korea and Avnet United. “For example, the regional electric vehicle (EV) market is growing exponentially. We are powering its growth with innovative, safe and cost-effective solutions that will help developers overcome the major barriers to EV adoption.”
