Digital transformation is key for SMEs that want to stay relevant and expand globally. Digitally-mature firms are 26 per cent more profitable as they can speed up their market entry, reach the right customers, scale quickly, even compete with more established players.

Half of the world's digital users live in the Asia-Pacific and that number is growing exponentially. SMEs need to keep up with the region's digital trends such as China's power apps, South-east Asia's social commerce and India's mobile solutions.

This year's iAdvisory Forum will highlight how SMEs can expand globally with digital transformation and capture opportunities in China, India and South-east Asia. Learn from firms that have expanded overseas as a result of their digital transformation. Experts will also share relevant global and regional trends.
