TechInnovation, held in Singapore where there are more than ten thousand patent applications every year, provides access to all exhibited technologies on its website. This year, the event also had a mobile application. The application enables booking meetings and communicating with the representatives of the exhibitors. Participants can scan each other's name badges to keep track of the meetings they have attended. Accessing the information and exhibits of every exhibitor in the fair and instantly booking meetings with them is a solution that greatly expedites the exchange of information between the parties. 


Sabancı University participated for the fourth time in TechInnovation, held by IPI Singapore at the heart of the city with support by the Enterprise Europe Network “EEN”, Spring Singapore and SWICH.
