Event Details

SME ACCelerate Forum 2023 is a half-day in-person conference focused on how the business community can support the sustainable growth of SMEs. The Forum is part of AmCham's SME ACCelerate program, which aims to help SMEs achieve growth and development in four key areas: mental well-being, women-led businesses, digitalization, and SME Connect & Learn. The Forum will feature a keynote address by our Guest of Honor Christopher Quinlivan, Minister Counselor for Commercial Affairs, Regional Senior Commercial Officer, U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, U.S. Embassy Singapore.

Hosted at Google, this year's theme "AI-Powered Success: Empowering SMEs", highlights the relevance and potential that artificial intelligence (AI) has for SMEs across industries in ensuring business growth. AI is experiencing massive developments today, such as improvements in machine learning, predictive capacities, face recognition and language processing. With the rise of publicly available software like ChatGPT and DALL-E, tools to generate content in the form of generative AI are being championed by large companies and governments. For SMEs, applications of these technologies are wide-ranging, and can include enhancing customer service experiences through chatbots, increasing production automation, making more accurate business models to analyze markets, and better decision making from enhanced information management and input.

Join AmCham as we explore AI's role in enhancing business efficiency through innovative solutions, how AI integration will create growth and competitive advantages for SMEs, and how SMEs providing AI solutions can value-add to larger organizations.

The Forum will also feature booths from CFO Centre, HR Easily, Latin America Chamber of Commerce, and Stone Forest and will conclude with networking over drinks and refreshments.
