The Conference

IDByte 2015 is back and will be bigger than ever!

This year, our theme is Connected e-Conomy, and will highlight the opportunities to develop Indonesia’s digital industry as our world gets more connected. Today, every business is a digital business, and this trend of increasing connectivity should be seized as an opportunity to grow beyond the domestic market.

Indonesia is filled with talented individuals and innovative businesses – our challenge now is to get our talents recognized internationally. We will explore how Indonesia’s digital potential could drive growth and development for various industries in Indonesia.

The conference will culminate in the awarding ceremony of Bubu Awards v.09 where we will award Indonesia’s best digital talents.
