Membership Meeting & Forum

After the successful first run of Digital Disruption Forum in 2018 with more than 200 attendees, its second edition with the theme “Harnessing Digital Transformation in Driving Business Growth” is set to take place on 03 September 2019 at the Ballroom of the Hilton Manila, 1 Newport Boulevard, Newport City, Pasay, Manila.

The world is witnessing the emergence of digital technologies that are rapidly evolving, optimizing operations, and accelerating innovation in the business sector. A joint study conducted by Microsoft and the International Data Corporation (IDC) in November 2018 entitled “Unlocking the Economic Impact of Digital Transformation in Asia Pacific” shows that business growth and the use of digital technologies are positively correlated.

The Digital Disruption 2.0 Forum will gather government leaders and industry experts to discuss the initiatives necessary for organizations to realize the full potential of digitalization and bring about not only business benefits, but also societal gains at an aggregate level. It will also explore the impact of disruptive technologies on business models across various sectors.
