Ready for a (digital) revolution?

The government in Cambodia recently hosted a digital conference that celebrated the Kingdom’s growing tech startup sector while simultaneously discussing the mounting challenges the country faces in embracing digitisation – before the digital revolution leaves Cambodia behind.

The exhibition hall stretched as far as the eye could see: hundreds of booths representing dozens of sectors, both local and regional, put their best tech-foot forward at the first annual Digital Cambodia conference. Startups and telecoms set up their booths beside those of banks and events companies, while gamers played on premium operating systems at the east end of the hall and dozens of speakers led a series of panels at the west end.

Located on Phnom Penh’s Diamond Island, the Digital Cambodia conference – the first of its kind to be held in the Kingdom – attracted 120 exhibitors and nearly 100 speakers, all of whom gathered to discuss the oncoming digital revolution and its impact on their respective industries. Over the course of the three-day event, which took place March 15 through March 17, thousands of attendees poured through the exhibition’s halls to attend the panels, talk with industry insiders, and fully immerse themselves in all things digital.
