The fourth edition of AIBC Summit will take place June 8th to 9th 2020, at the SMX Convention Centre, in Manila, running concurrently across two floors with SiGMA Manila to ignite the symbiotic opportunities for businesses in each sector of iGaming, AI, Blockchain, and emerging technologies.
With more than 10,000 sqm set aside for the AIBC Summit Manila alone, this show offers a huge opportunity for networking with more than 3,000 attendees across the sectors of AI, blockchain, Quantum tech, IoT, as well as the complementary iGaming sector which will occupy a further 10,000 sqm for SiGMA Manila.
Echoing the success of sister events AIBC Summit Malta and SiGMA Malta, the dual summits in Manila 2020 expect to welcome more than 600 exhibitors and 13,000 attendees from across the globe for two days of conferences and workshops, and premier networking events.
As The Philippines open their doors to a business-friendly, regulated environment, this event has all the hallmarks to become an annual favourite for companies looking to tap into the region.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created mayhem across the world, with events being a prime target. We had decided, with a heavy heart, to postpone AIBC Manila from June 2020 to May 27-28th, 2021 at the SMX Convention Centre, Manila. In line with our commitment to bring the East and West Gaming scenes closer together, we hosted an online conference on the 10th June 2020.
On screen near you, this conference had been designed to deliver the expert insights you expected from this year’s exhibition and conference, even while most of us were at home!
As Asia leads the way in adopting new blockchain and AI technologies into a booming business sector, the Manila AI and Blockchain Summit aims to secure its place on the global tech calendar as the premier platform for companies to exhibit, network and engage in debate.
