This was the 9th year of this event, organized by the business division of PLDT, the biggest telecom and digital services company in the Philippines. They brought together industry experts, tech leaders, and pioneers to meet in person and promote tech for small and big businesses.

“It’s going to be an exciting ride, fueled by our own collective Vision of a dynamic future, where technology seamlessly converges with the essence of humanity. That very word right there, Vision, that’s where it all begins. And while the future we are building is one where ideally humanity and technology seamlessly coexist to propel innovation and progress, only humanity possesses the heart and the spirit to create a Vision of where we want technology to bring us. And this is why we master and harness technology according to this Vision.”

“We will explore transformational leadership, the art of guiding our digital odyssey where visionary leaders steer the organizations towards a brighter and more prosperous future. Sustainability will take center stage in all of our discussions where we bridge the gap between technology and ethics, ensuring a better tomorrow for generations to come. We will also explore the delicate balance between innovations and responsibility, fostering a world where progress aligns harmoniously with our environment and societal values.”

– Mitch Locsin, PLDT and Smart First Vice President and Head of Enterprise and International Business Groups, during his opening speech

The event discussed topics like leadership, technology, ethics, and how they all relate to making a better future. They also explored how to balance innovation and responsibility, making sure progress respects our environment and values.

“We are sincerely grateful to everyone who attended and participated this year. Planning and hosting an in-person PH Digicon 2023, with many ‘firsts,’ has been an exhilarating journey, especially coming from the pandemic, when most events were conducted virtually. We knew that our attendees, leaders, and tech-enthusiasts from across the nation would be very interested in coming here in person to really experience all the technologies and innovations firsthand. This year, we’ve prepared a range of exciting new initiatives, such as opening the event to the public, our SME Zone, the Digicon City with innovative digital booths, and the Start-up Innovation Challenge, among others.”

“But expectations were exceeded, and we were very much pleasantly surprised by the full show of support and record-breaking numbers in terms of registrants and actual attendees.
