Dear Ms./Mr:

We would like to invite you to join us in the fourth Asia-Pacific Innovation Day – “Innovate for a Digital Asia-Pacific” – to be held at Siam Kempinski Hotel from 6th – 7th, June, 2018.

Huawei’s Asia-Pacific Innovation Day focuses on global innovation and open partnership. It’s the first of its kind to gather such a broad range of digital economy stakeholders across the Asia-Pacific region, including representatives from governments, telecom operators, enterprises, consumers, and the scientific research community.

We will have leading industry experts, scholars, and policy-makers to discuss the future of the digital economy.

We’ve got a lot of challenges and opportunities ahead of us. Come join us at Asia-Pacific Innovation Day, where we can put our minds together to help bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world.

It will be our greatest honor to have you share your insight on the agenda. We look forward to seeing you in Bangkok!
