Initially beginning in 1992, POWERGEN Asia has taken place in various countries around Asia, including China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore. 2016 saw the events take place outside of the ASEAN region, and also for the first time in South Korea, followed by our 9th staging of the event in Bangkok in 2017. For the first time, POWERGEN Asia took place in Indonesia in 2018, at ICE, in BSD City, Jakarta, alongside MKI's 73rd Indonesia National Electricity Day, which hosted record-breaking numbers of 9,200+ attendees.
Asian Utility Week began as a small event focused on smart metering and billing issues. It has been running for 20 years. In recent years, it has expanded the digital theme to include digital transformation topics which include real time analytics and visualisation, cloud platforms, machine learning applications, mobile field services, smart home-business service platforms, and customer engagement strategies which are relevant to liberalised energy markets. It is the only event in Asia that is focused on utility digital transformation and digital energy efficiency.
In 2019, POWERGEN Asia was co-located with Asian Utility Week, offering a full end-to-end power and energy solutions event, attracting more than 11,000 attendees and 350+ exhibitors at MITEC, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 3-5 September 2019.
