Philippines jumped 17 places in the 2015 Global Innovation Index (GII), placing 83rd in worldwide rankings and 12th for Southeast Asia and Oceana. And, those who still view the Philippines as a technological laggard were surprised with this data. This August, an expo will offer tech enthusiasts a showcase of innovations. Now on its 14th year, Systems Integration Philippines (SIP) will take place from August 11 to 13 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, SM Mall of Asia Complex.
“We want businesses to see what innovative solutions, products, and services are out there in the market,” shares Patrick-Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link MP Events International, Inc. (GLMP), organizer of the event. “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. There will be more than 150 solution providers at the show so people really have a lot to look forward to.”
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, Virtual Reality; and Digital Raffle Draws.
This year’s SIP will also be held alongside Wire and Cable Philippines 2016. With the country gaining recognition as Asia’s center for manufacturing and production, this trade event marks its 3rd year as the networking hub for key industry players from across 20 countries.
