Global Smart Meter/Grid experts to gather under one roof in Bangkok this May.

Singapore, Singapore, January 29, 2013 --( The Smart Grid and AMR/AMI industry is growing rapidly in Asia. With a seemingly unlimited market to reach out to, companies are shifting their smart grid and meter investments towards Asia. The 8th annual Metering, Billing/CRM Asia returns to Bangkok from 22-23 May 2013 and is the premier platform for Asian metering stakeholders and key solution providers exploring metering strategies and plans in the region.

According to Pike Research, smart grid revenue in the South East Asia market will experience steady growth in the next ten years with smart grid revenue generated by the investments in transmission, substation, and distribution upgrades (as well as smart meters) growing from approximately $1.9 billion in 2011 to $4.5 billion in 2020.

“We are creating an opportunity this year for all Smart Meter and Smart Grid experts to meet under one roof,” says Daria La Valle, Project Director for Metering, Billing/CRM Asia and Transmission & Distribution/Smart Grids Asia.

“With over 740 metering experts gathering at Metering Asia and over 200 gathering at Transmission & Distribution/Smart Grids Asia last year, we are realistically expecting over 1000 participants at this year’s joined events,” continues La Valle.
