This will be an interesting big forum, should be bigger than the World Economic Forum (WEF), PH edition.
Speakers are top corporate leaders of PLDT/Smart and Globe; Ayala Energy, Solar PH and Aboitiz Power; Rustans, McDonalds and Alaska; Megaworld, Insular life and Sunlife; ABS-CBN, McKinsey and Phinma. From the government, incoming VP, DOF Secretary, SEC and PCC Chairman.
The telecom duopoly and PCC arbiter will be there, though they will be in separate panel discussions. Soon Pres. Duterte won't be there but his DOF Secretary and trustee will come.
And I will be there too, as ordinary audience. Will write articles, tweet and blog it. This will be my first time to hear many of those big corporate leaders, even first time to see them personally. :-)
How to get tickets, http://bweconomicforum.com/index.php/register/.
So the registration fee is not so high given the high caliber speakers from business and government.
Look at the roster of corporate sponsors and partners, they should be the ones who roll out huge contributions for this big event, and little dependence on registration fees, http://bweconomicforum.com/index.php/partners/
High media mileage, that's why they are able to get those big corporate and govt leaders to sit in one big room for a day. Bloomberg PH, BWorld, Phil. Star, TV5, MBC, interaksyon. Plus media outside MVP group.
I will be writing more about these players/speakers and their sectors in the coming days.
