Did you know that one of Southeast Asia’s largest-scale tech conferences is now being hosted annually in Bangkok, Thailand? Not everyone knows that, in part because the conference is just five years old. But within those five years, Thailand’s largest startup conference has experienced phenomenal growth. This year – after rebranding as Techsauce Global Summit 2017, as well as SEA’s first ever global-scale tech conference, the event is now targeting over 6000 participants.

Techsauce Summit 2016 instantly became the biggest international paid tech conference ever to be organized in Thailand, generating more than 10 million impressions of media coverage

It may have begun under the name Start It Up Conference in 2012 with just 120 attendees – but when the conference rebranded and was organized under the name Techsauce Summit for the first time in 2016, it managed to attract more than 3,000 attendees to Bangkok’s Centara Grand Convention centre. Techsauce Summit instantly became the biggest international paid tech conference ever to be organized in Thailand, generating more than 10 million impressions of media coverage and even a report from Forbes, who quickly headlined that Techsauce Summit’s ability to draw thousands signaled Thailand’s fast-growing tech ecosystem.
