Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear Partners,

We cordially invite you to the Business Innovation Congress (BIC) to be held in November 2018 in Manila, Philippines

Theme of the BIC in Manila:
Technology Transfer: mechanization, automation and digitalization


The main objective of the BIC Manila is to explore new market trends, products, services, and technological innovation.

The BIC is a strategic venue for top executives, business owners of small and medium-sized enterprises, entrepreneurs, innovators, professionals, investors, and academics to join in practical expert-led workshops and exclusive business meetings with leading decision-makers.

Guided by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, the principal aim of the BIC is to establish an interdisciplinary business interaction platform for industry representatives, government officials, science community and society as a whole to address  compelling competitiveness issues of a radically evolving globalized marketplace within the context of a dialogue on social responsibility.

The BIC Manila is organized by the Center for strategic intercultural communication GmbH and the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation ASEAN Regional Office Thailand.
