Digital Philippines: Driving and securing the next wave of innovation Growth

November 16, 2022 | Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila

We collaborate to plan and navigate the transformation process.

Coming Soon



In this time of technological breakthroughs, existing markets and business operations are being reshaped. Disrupted but innovating. Shifting but improving. Globally, digital transformation is driving economic change because of the new opportunities it is impacting. In countries like the Philippines where internet usage and activity are regularly high, though the digital journey has already unfolded, there remains a promise that technological advancements hold. Technology has become a very integral element of the workforce across all sectors it became a means of engagement beyond channels for employees working in a hybrid set up, and for customers to reach out to enterprises

The continuous growth of digital tools in the Philippines, among others, has beyond doubt unlocked opportunities for many businesses and for the country itself. A commissioned research by Google that aimed to look into the economic impact of digital technologies in the country, specifically in nontech sectors, has revealed that digital transformation can unlock Php 5 trillion or USD 101.3 billion in yearly economic value by 2030, if leveraged fully. To help attain such value growth, the Philippine government has launched several initiatives and frameworks that realize this potential in digital transformation. But the country is no exception to challenges low adoption among MSMEs, lack of awareness of existing programs and policies to boost digital adoption, and gaps in digital infrastructure

To remain competitive in the digital era, enterprises are prompted to look into innovative digital solutions for operations continuity. Get in on the act of furthering discussions with fellow Clevels and Directors in the Digital Transformation space through Rockbird Media‘s flagship event the 10th Digital Transformation Asia 2022. Loaded with toplevel speakers and industry leaders, discover the next wave of growth and innovation.

Agenda At A Glance


The facilitation session, the one-on-one, these special sessions really give the participants a focused discussion with the experts and they can get their advice they can get their opinions and that would help the participants reflect on what they are doing wrong and probably correctly it eventually. When I look at the variety of topics, they are the hot topics, the critical issues, and the emerging technologies. Like IoT, data privacy, digital transformation; these are “in” things that every business has nowadays must face. These are all inevitable.

[If I were to tell my peers about the event,] I would recommend them to attend it because of the vast knowledge that they’ll get, the opinions and the expertise of these known individuals in their fields. They will really help them in their businesses.

– Meralco

Rockbird in general has invited great speakers and sponsors for the event. Organizers have also assisted us with the antigen testing which made us feel secure during the event.

– Cebu Pacific Air

Awesome event. I would love to attend in future events like this. I gained so much knowledge and understanding with all those topics presented.

– Philippine Bank of Communications

You have the right target market. It’s the same market we have been trying to tap in past couple of months and we’d like to impart the latest technology as I’ve mentioned earlier to the C-level because normally when we conduct our meetings it’s normally with the IT Manager and not really to the upper management or top management. So I believe this is the right format. The one-on-one session was the most appealing during this event because we were able to sit down with the target market, the certain C-level Executive that we’ve been wanting to schedule a meeting with.

– Lenovo

The event was very fruitful, I learned so much and was able to connected to many leaders in the InfoSec community.

– Polytechnic University of the Philippines

Great Job!!! 👍👍👍 Rockbird Media as an event organizer values the participants’ time. Also, their enthusiasm and energy reverberated on the positive outcome of the event.

– Security Bank Corporaton

“It was great to hear everyone’s point of view! Great set of speakers!”

– Manila Doctors Hospital
