China, Indonesia, India at STEP 2019


The exciting Asian market is on everyone’s radar and we’ve got you covered. Speakers from China, Indonesia, India and more, are coming to STEP 2019! China is the world’s second largest economy and the talk of the town across industries. On the other hand Indonesia is an exciting emerging market, currently the largest in Southeast Asia and 16th in the world. Meanwhile India is considered to be one of the fastest growing economies today.

Here’s just a selection of the Asia-based companies we’ve got lined up for you on all four STEP stages:
