SITEX is back this year with its 2019 edition, introducing two new zones – the Health and Wellness Zone and the Travel Tech & Portable Audio Zone. These new additions will join the Smart Home and Living, and Gaming Zones to form a more immersive and innovative space for all to experience technology in new and exciting ways.
Jointly organized by SingEx Exhibitions and SG Tech, the consumer lifestyle IT exhibition is one of Singapore's biggest IT event which aims to connect technology and lifestyle into a single element, offering new innovations and digital transformations to consumers.
Fondly coined as Your Digital Playground for the last 30 years, SITEX is not your average IT exhibition. Last year's SITEX was the exhibition's 30th edition which the organizers claimed as the biggest event yet, partnering with notable technology company like Google to bring some of the coolest technology to consumers that can make daily household chores much easier. They have also worked with VIRO Green to kickstart an eco-friendly initiative to recycle old IT gadgets.
This year, the organizers planned to push the boundaries even further by offering a more refreshed experience with elevated product offerings themed to four main lifestyle categories or Experiential Zones – Smart Home and Living, Gaming, Health and Wellness, and Travel Tech and Portable Audio.
Health and Wellness Zone – #HealthWellness
The new Health and Wellness zone features a wide variety of contemporary fitness gear and equipment that will pair well with any fitness regime. Imagine how you can incorporate data into your workout to increase your effectiveness and efficiency. This technology is what Fight Zone, a Muay Thai fitness studio, uses where they leverage on wearables to track and provide customers with real-time analytical data to enhance their workout.
The new zone also features Dr.stretch, the stretching specialists that teach a unique Core Balance Stretch that allows practitioners to access their core muscles to increase flexibility, reduce pain, and speed-up muscle recovery. This technique originated in the United States and was further developed in Japan by Mr. Genki Yamaguchi who worked as a trainer for Major League Baseball (MLB) team, the Boston Red Socks.
Travel Tech and Portable Audio Zone – #TravelTechPortableAudio
Back in action from its debut launch in 2018, the Travel Tech and Portable Audio Zone have been combined this year to form a more extensive range of gadgets that caters to the active individual. The large selection of product catering offers the travel nomad ways to make their commute smarter, more enjoyable, and even more environmentally sustainable.
The latest edition of the exhibition also features TPG, Singapore's 4th mobile operator. TPG offers free 12 months unlimited data and mobile-to-mobile calls, as well as free data roaming to Malaysia and Indonesia, to the tech-savvy travelers to use data on the move. Customers can sign up now for this unbeatable trial offer at tpgmobile.sg.
Electric car-sharing service, BlueSG, will also be participating in SITEX 2019 to showcase their electric vehicles as part of the e-mobility segment. BlueSG, currently has over 230 self-service stations island-wide, is the first 100% electric car-sharing service in the lion city to provide an environmentally friendly, convenient, and affordable transport option while reducing carbon footprint.
Smartphone maker, VIVO, which showcased their cutting-edge V11 in last year's SITEX, will also be participating in this year, showcasing their newly released S1, with the V15, V15 Pro and Y17 among others.
