We are delighted to invite you to join us at the Asia Pacific Technology Conference in Tokyo on 27 February 2019.

Baker McKenzie’s Simplifying Business series found that 89% of business leaders in Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) expected to see major technological disruption in the industry. Where are we two years on? Be the first to hear the results of our latest Simplifying Business report; What technologies are likely to have the biggest impact on your business?
