Those who still view the Philippines as a technological laggard were surprised when the country jumped 17 places in the 2015 Global Innovation Index (GII), placing 83rd in worldwide rankings and 12th for Southeast Asia and Oceana.
This August, one expo is treating tech enthusiasts to 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), and organizer of the event.
“SIP is about emerging technologies and it is subdivided into different sections depending on industry,” he continued. “We have pro-AVL for events and film; entertainment technology; consumer electronics; advertising and media; IT; unified communications; and office solutions. There will be more than 150 companies at the show so people really have a lot to look forward to.”
Besides the expo, other exciting activities and opportunities are in store for trade visitors, such as Audio and Lighting Seminars (a one day seminar about Phonic Quality in Audio and Proper Lighting in churches); Analog Sound in the Digital World (a two day certification program about audio for film and videos, practical amplification technology, fundamentals on transition from analog to digital mixing, and sound system design, organized); Innovation Zone (a showcase of the latest gadgets and equipment); and, Technical Presentations (seminars about new developments and technologies out in the market).
