CSG International and STL Partners Join Forces to Bring First Ever 'New Digital Economics' Executive Brainstorm to Asia Pacific

We're proud to announce details of our first invitation only APAC Executive Brainstorm in Singapore, in December 2011. Copied below is a press release from our partners, CSG International.

Kuala Lumpur - July 2011 - CSG Systems International, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSGS), a global provider of software- and services-based business support solutions that help clients generate revenue and maximize customer relationships, today announced the company has partnered with STL Partners, founders of the Telco 2.0 Initiative and Digital Entertainment 2.0 Initiative, to bring the New Digital Economics Executive Brainstorm Series to the Asia Pacific region for the very first time.

Combining the success of the CSG's (formerly Intec) APAC Executive Forum with the 'executive brainstorming format' that has become the hallmark of STL Partners events, the newly formed New Digital Economics & CSG APAC Executive Forum 2011 event will focus on the Telecommunications, Media and Technology sectors. This invitation only event will take place in Singapore at the end of 2011. To learn more please visit: newdigitaleconomics.com/events.

"The merged New Digital Economics & CSG APAC Exec Forum 2011 will give attendees the opportunity to not only hear about strategic content that matters to their business, particularly strategies that accelerate new growth opportunities, but the event will also allow attendees to brainstorm new approaches and ideas with their peers. Our unique collaboration with STL Partners ensures our audience of invitation only executives can walk away with actionable content to help accelerate business opportunities," said Ian Watterson, Vice President and Managing Director (Asia Pacific) of CSG International. "By bringing together thought leaders from the telecommunications, media and technology sectors this event is sure to serve as a launch pad for the industry."

"We're delighted to be working with CSG International on this important event in this vibrant market region. Our Telco 2.0 research is proving increasingly popular in the APAC and we're being asked more and more to help local operators embed its principles into their strategic planning. We'd been planning to launch our events programme in the region and so when CSG suggested we partner with their well-established and respected Exec Forum it made complete sense", said Simon Torrance, CEO, STL Partners.

The two day event focuses on new growth opportunities and business model innovation and uses STL Partners unique 'Mindshare' interactive format. This combines cutting edge market analysis, case studies and use cases, round table discussions and interactive voting technology. It includes an Innovators Showcase to bring to life some of the concepts under discussion. CSG International will also host select thought leadership, operator, partner and analysts sessions. Telecom Asia is a key strategic partner to the event.
