Speaking on day 1 of Techsauce Virtual Summit 2020, Oranuch Lerdsuwankij, co-founder and CEO of Techsauce said: “We are delighted to bring together some of the biggest players in the tech world for Techsauce Virtual Summit.

It will take place online, with the majority of speakers discussing recovery and the challenges technology faces as a result of COVID-19.”
“We have received an extremely positive response with over 10 thousand attendees expected to log in to over 21 sessions. The event will now act as a springboard for our most popular conference, Techsauce Global Summit, which takes place on 5-6 October in its original much-loved location, Centara Grand at CentralWorld, Bangkok, Thailand,” he added.
