Tarsus Group, E.J. Krause Partner to Launch CONNECT EXPO COMM INODONESIA 2014

November 15, 2013

With a population of 251 million and the fastest-growing economy in the G20 after China, Indonesia is a hot spot for new shows, including U.K.-based Tarsus Group and U.S.-based E.J. Krause & Associates partnership to launch CONNECT EXPO COMM INODONESIA 2014.

E.J. Krause’s EXPO COMM-branded series of shows is a leader in its sector, and Tarsus already has several shows in the country, such as Connect Indonesia, which runs as part of the annual Indonesia Infrastructure Week.

“Indonesia Infrastructure Week has already established itself as the major international platform to make commercial and government level connections with Indonesian infrastructure project holders,” said Douglas Emslie, group managing director of Tarsus Group.

He added, “I am positive that combining Connect Indonesia’s strong local presence with EXPO COMM’s international reach will quickly allow CONNECT EXPO COMM INDONESIA to develop into South East Asia’s leading ICT event.”

CONNECT EXPO COMM INDONESIA 2014 will provide an international platform for telecommunications, media, wireless mobile and ICT firms to meet and connect with national and regional decision makers responsible for the roll out of Indonesia’s massive broadband deployment program.

A dedicated National Broadband Congress will also be held in conjunction with CONNECT EXPO COMM INDONESIA 2014.

The three-day Congress will fall under the theme “Empowering the Next 120 Million Internet Users Across Indonesia - in support of the Indonesia Broadband Plan” (IBP).

The IBP is directly funded by the Indonesian government and has the objective of expanding national economic strategies with the use of Broadband-enabled technologies.

“With Indonesia’s economy on the rise, currently the largest in South East Asia, we see massive potential in investing in the market. CONNECT EXPO COMM is the perfect opportunity to accelerate ICT development in South East Asia,” said Ned Krause, CEO of E.J. Krause & Associates.

Because of its political stability and growing economy, Indonesia is on the fast track for growth in the region. As part of that growth, Information Communications Technology (ICT) and Broadband deployment have been earmarked as key government initiatives.

CONNECT EXPO COMM INDONESIA will be held in November 2014.

Through its 'Focused on What Matters: Embracing Humanity and Protecting the Planet' philosophy, MGM Resorts commits to creating a more sustainable future, while striving to make an impact in the lives of employees, guests, and the communities in which it operates. Water Stewardship Efforts MGM Resorts understands the importance of using water efficiently, especially in the desert destination of Las Vegas. Conserving water has always been part of the mission, but MGM Resorts has expanded its ambition into water stewardship. In 2022, MGM Resorts President and CEO Bill Hornbuckle signed the CEO Water Mandate—a UN Global Compact initiative mobilizing business leaders to advance water stewardship. MGM Resorts International was the first gaming company to take this important step. MGM Resorts replaced 200,000 square feet of real grass with drought-tolerant landscaping in Las Vegas. MGM Resorts pledges to reduce water withdrawal intensity by 33% by 2025 and by 35% by 2030. From 2007-2021, use of more than 5.6 billion gallons of water was avoided because of conservation efforts. Caring for One Another MGM Resorts’ Food Donations Program collects and preserves unserved food from conventions held at MGM Resorts properties, then safely donates to food insecure people in the community. Since the program’s launch in 2016, more than 3.7 million meals toward a 2025 goal of 5 million meals have been donated into the community. Donations include: Unserved perishable prepared foods from events Perishable unprepared food from MGM Resorts’ kitchens Nonperishable food items from minibars and warehouses The collaboration with Southern Nevada’s primary food bank, Three Square, has developed the infrastructure needed to safely collect, transport, and store food from MGM Resorts properties in Las Vegas, reducing food waste while serving the community.
