Connecting the continent: Asian Telecom Awards recognises excellence in APAC's digital landscape

The winning industry visionaries were celebrated during the Awards Dinner on 29 February 2024 at Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Singapore.

The telecom industry continues to grow with innovation, constantly leapfrogging towards a hyperconnected future. Recognising its trailblazers—the visionaries and disruptors paving the way—is not just a form of applause; it serves as fuel to inspire and accelerate progress in the ever-expanding world of telecommunication.

With this, the Asian Telecom Awards 2024 shines a spotlight on these success stories, honouring the industry leaders who push the boundaries of possibility and unlock the transformative power of technology.

Tracing back to its origins in the Asian Mobile News’ debut in 2003, the awards programme has continuously been elevating and celebrating exceptional accomplishments within the telecom industry. It lauds companies that not only drive progress but also ignite further innovation within the sector.

“I am really honoured and humbled today in terms of support. This award doesn't belong to me, or to a few colleagues of mine in M1. This award really belongs to 300 M1 members of our family in Singapore and in Malaysia. I think all 300 of us, for the last four years, have been working very hard transforming this organisation into the digital route. Irrespective of pandemic, work-from-home situation, everybody's gone through with shared hard work, determination, and discipline," said Manjot Singh Mann, M1 Limited. Mann was awarded with the CEO of the Year award in this year’s instalment of the awards programme.

Entries to the Asian Telecom Awards 2024 were evaluated by an esteemed panel of judges comprising Yang Chi Chih, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Leader at Deloitte Southeast Asia; Joongshik Wang, EY Parthenon Asean Leader and EY Asean Technology, Media & Entertainment and Telecommunications Leader; and Wilson Chow, Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Industry Leader and China Artificial Intelligence Leader at PwC China.
