How E-commerce can drive new revenue opportunities for Indonesia

Driving e-money, cybersecurity and overcoming barriers for cross-border trade are among the topics to be discussed by more than 20 industry experts – including Amazon, Juniper Networks, Twitter and Bitcoin Indonesia representatives – during Indonesia’s first major ICT event.

Communic Indonesia 2016 is happening in Jakarta between 31st Aug and 3rd Sep 2016.


Indonesia presents much opportunity for e-commerce among other emerging Asian economies, with current projections putting the nation’s e-market at $130 billion by 2020, third behind China and India.

Other confirmed speakers and panellists for the e-commerce track include delegates from the Indonesia E-Commerce Association, GFK Asia and the Asia Venture Group, who will explore the challenges and opportunities faced by the industry.

“We are very excited about the sheer number of speakers and exhibitors confirmed for the first Communic Indonesia 2016 event,” said Natasha Godbold, Communic Indonesia’s Show Project Manager. “With 500 C-Level attendees expected to make the trip from all over the globe to listen to key notes and panel discussions, we are confident this is the start of bigger things to come for the region.”

E-commerce is one of three main areas which the conference will cover, with Broadband, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Satellite Communications also featuring high on the agenda.

Satis – a satellite communications channels provider for streaming data, voice, video and broadband Internet access – will sponsor the SatCom track on Day 2, as well as taking part in a track sponsor presentation at 2pm. Two senior representatives Overseas Business Advisor Dmitry A. Tsurikov and CEO First Deputy Dmitry V. Belokurov will speak on behalf of Satis to discuss Harnessing Commercial Efficiency with VSAT and SCPC in Telecoms Servicing. Satis will also exhibit at the show alongside Teltonika – a Lithuanian designer, producer and installer of mobile and wireless telecommunication devices (M2M) – and Infinet Wireless, the global leader in fixed broadband wireless connectivity.

“Communic Indonesia provides the region with a platform for topical discussions with other companies and experts in the industry and we’re really looking forward to taking part and exhibiting our best-in-class solutions and products to the market,” said Dmitry Okorokov, Chief Executive Officer at InfiNet Wireless.

The ICT Summit is co-located with Broadcast Indonesia – an International Digital Multimedia and Entertainment Technology Exhibition & Conference – providing a platform for top industry leaders to network in one of South-East Asia’s most up and coming markets.
