Those who still view the Philippines a technological laggard were surprised when the country jumped 17 places up in the 2015 Global Innovation Index (GII), placing 83rd in worldwide rakings and 12th for Southeast Asia and Oceana.
This August, tech enthusiasts and businesses in the Philippines get to experience first-hand a showcase of innovations with the Systems Integration Philippines (SIP). Now on it’s 14th year, SIP will take place from August 11 to 13, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center Manila in SM Mall of Asia Complex.
“We want businesses to see what innovative solutions, products, and services are out there in the market,” shared Patrick Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link MP Events International, Inc. (GLMP).
“SIP is about emerging technologies, and it is subdivided into different sections, depending on industry. We have pro-AVL for events and film; entertainment technology, consumer electronics, advertising and media, IT, unified communications, education, and office solutions.”
Expect more than 150 solution providers at the expo, so you really have a lot to look forward to according to Tan.
Aside from the expo, the organizers have conceptualized exciting opportunities for trade visitors, such as technical seminars, business matching sessions, zone sections for innovation, drones, and virtual reality, as well as digital raffle draws
This year’s SIP will also be held alongside Wire and Cable Philippines 2016. The trade event marks its 3rd year as the networking hub for key industry players from across 20 countries, and just in time with the country gaining recognition as Asia’s center for manufacturing and production.
