KPMG Innovation Summit 2023

KPMG R. G. Manabat & Co., one of the country's largest accounting and professional services firms, will hold its annual Innovation Summit at Fairmont Makati on July 20, 2023.

The Innovation Summit 2023, themed MAKING IT HAPPEN: From Innovative Ideas to Execution, debuts two remarkable events: the inaugural Philippine leg of the KPMG Global Technology Innovator competition and KPMG in the Philippines' new Digital Government Center.

Quezon City Mayor Hon. Joy Belmonte will grace the event as Keynote Speaker, sharing her own aspirations and commitments to digitization as a decision-maker in the political landscape.

Business leaders and technology experts are scheduled to attend this year's summit, which will be live-streamed for its growing online audience. This is a departure from KPMG's completely digital conferences in 2021 and 2022, which won the Public Relations Society of the Philippines' Anvil Award for Special Event and Exhibit.
“Recognitions of such magnitude inspire us to keep doing our share in empowering fellow professionals because we know this triggers the beginning of great leadership and boundless innovations," says KPMG in the Philippines' Chairman & CEO, Sharon G. Dayoan.
KPMG in the Philippines will hold its first-ever search for the country's tech start-up to represent the Philippines at the KPMG Global Tech Innovator Competition in Lisbon, Portugal.

The winner will compete with digital startups from 26 countries to achieve their ambitious innovation goals. Industry leaders will mentor the finalists as they get ready for the competition.

The summit's finalists will be judged on innovation and disruption, market potential, consumer uptake, marketing buzz, pitch quality, and long-term potential by a panel of business leaders and decision-makers. The competition winner will receive brand visibility, prestige, and investment funding.

KPMG R.G Manabat and Co.'s Digital Government Center will be showcased at this year's Innovation Summit. The center will help national and local governments design and strategize automated services and use emerging technologies to give citizens efficient yet realistic solutions. Civil servants can also get technical training and certificates from it.
