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.
