Cashless Expo 2023: A Pioneering Event
GoDigital Pilipinas is all set to present the groundbreaking “Cashless Expo 2023” from November 17 to 19 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
“The organizers and stakeholders from both the public and private sectors are joining together in order to create awareness and boost the Filipino consumer’s confidence in exploring the world of digital transactions and understanding its countless advantages. Thus, we see the event as a celebration in digital progress and innovation.”
– Mishy Co, Executive Director
Diverse Support for the Cashless Movement
The three-day expo is supported by government agencies such as the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Department of Agriculture (DA), and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP). It has also received support from numerous exhibitors, including farmers and SMEs, all championing the cause of a “cashless” society.
One of the highlights of the event is a “one-stop bazaar” where shoppers can explore the best products from all regions of the Philippines at affordable prices. Notably, exhibitors will exclusively accept digital payment methods, including cash transfers via digital banks, e-wallets, and debit/credit cards, encouraging both consumers and merchants to embrace digital transactions with confidence.
“In fact, two of the leading fintech companies, Maya and GCash, are coming together to support our mission,” Co proudly states.
The event is also co-sponsored by PLDT, Visa, Unionbank, Tiktok, Lazada, Zalora, RCBC, Grab, McDonald’s, UnionDigital Bank, and Foodpanda.
Attendees can look forward to a variety of engaging talks and informative learning sessions carefully curated by experts from both public and private sectors.
Empowering a Cashless Future
“Cashless Expo 2023 aims to provide visitors an immersive and transformative journey. We conceptualized the event as a sort of “platform” for consumers to experience first-hand the ease and advantage of doing digital transactions and for the market to develop a profound appreciation for going “cashless,” says Co.
“We are all united in these key messaging pillars: 1. Digital transformation is the key to propelling economic growth and prosperity; 2. Digital transactions are both convenient and secure; and 3. Switching to digital payments reduces the cost associated with producing and managing physical currency, thereby fostering financial stability and sustainability.”
