The inclement weather last Tuesday (Oct.25) did not stop guests from local government agencies and foreign representatives from going to the Ayala Museum for the soft launch of Professional Event Organizer, EXPOASIA.
Expoasia is a full-service local event organizer focused on delivering events that serve the national interest of the country particularly in Defense, Security and Cyberspace. According to Mr. Menji Paggao, Managing Partner of Expoasia, “Our groups vision and mission is to be able to provide Forums/Exhibitions in Cybersecurity and Defense and Security in the Philippines. Expo Asia is aiming to widen the knowledge base of the Philippines to a Global level by organizing these events with Globally known brands and solutions.”
In 2023, the Asian Cybersecurity Congress: Defending Asia’s Digital Economy will gather cyber security professionals and tech experts from the government, public and private organizations for a three-day conference and expo. Globally recognized solution providers are expected to join the expo while respected cyber security practitioners will share their expertise via the plenary and technical presentations.
Meanwhile, in 2024 the Defense and Security Expo Asia (DASEA) comes to Clark in Pampanga. This is a much-awaited biennial meet for the defense and security industry. In the words of Expoasia Head of Events, Tessa dela Cruz she says “DASEA aims to be the largest and most ambitious defense show in the Philippines. It will address the modernization requirements of the military as well as an opportunity to promote the growing local defense industry. The 3-day event will bring together local and global experts to present cutting-edge solutions in defense and security.”
Guest of Honor for the night was Dr. Clarita Carlos, previous National Security Adviser. However, she was not able to make it due to some unforeseen circumstances. Instead, her message on Cybersecurity and National Security was delivered by Expoasia Managing Partner, Mr. Menji Paggao. Important to note is the impact of cybersecurity to our economy, she said “While it is seen as a great economic opportunity, this increasing reliance upon the Internet has also created a number of cyberthreats. A cyber security study published by Frost & Sullivan in 2018 discovered that, in the event of a cyberattack, the Philippines could lose up to USD 3.5 billion or 1.1% of its GDP.”
Expoasia is backed by its founders who have been in the Defense, Security and Tech industry for more than 3 decades. The events will be international in nature as Expoasia enters the global stage in bringing world-class quality events that connect people, ideas and solutions.
