Participants at the IMMAP DigiCon will gain the opportunity to listen to content provided by powerhouse experts and acknowledged regional and global thought leaders in the field of digital marketing. A total of 100 speakers representing the various sectors of digital marketing’s diverse ecosystem will enlighten delegates on 10 tracks of topics: “Branding and Marketing,” “Content and Distribution,” “Start-Ups,” “The Digital Creative,” “Social and Search,” “eCommerce and Payments,” “The Digital Agency,” “CRM, Data and Analytics,” “Research and Measurement,” and “Media and Ad Networks.”

Included in the speaker lineup for the IMMAP DigiCon are Steve Kalifowitz, Twitter’s Head of Brand Strategy and Advocacy for Asia Pacific and Middle East and North Africa (APAC-MENA); Sunita Kaur, Spotify’s Managing Director for Asia; Ryan Morales, Head of Consumer Marketing for Google Southeast Asia; Eleanne Hattis, Head of Asia Pacific Sales for Waze; and Sandhia Devanathan, Head for eCommerce, Financial Services for Travel, Southeast Asia, for Facebook eCommerce, among others.

“We have long dreamt of establishing the country’s first digital congress, and now it’s finally happening after months of planning and painstaking work. We would like to thank the IMMAP DigiCon management committee for putting together this milestone event for our association’s 10th anniversary, and we’re looking forward to a successful event,” says Margot Torres, IMMAP President.

For his part, IMMAP Vice President and DigiCon Director-in-Charge Eduardo Mapa, Jr. said, “The array of speakers gathers the best of the best, the brightest of minds when it comes to digital marketing. We are glad that they are willing to speak during this event to help spread the word on the importance of digital marketing and, eventually, help transform the marketing landscape to make it even more vibrant and dynamic in the 21st Century.”

“What we are preparing for is the establishment of what we call a ‘digital economy.’ It is slowly and surely happening so everyone, whether in the traditional or digital marketing industries, should be able to embrace it and witness it. Our goal in digital marketing is to complement the tenets of marketing and hopefully transform and bring it to a whole new level. The road is tough, acceptance from companies is trickling, but we are moving forward. We hope that our event will help achieve that goal,” explains Donald Lim, co-founder of IMMAP and overall Chairman of the IMMAP DigiCon.

The first “IMMAP DigiCon, The Power of X: Digital Multiplied,” will be held on October 10-12, 2016 at the Philippine International Convention Center, Vicente Sotto Street, Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex, Pasay City.
