With over 70 world-class speakers from 14 countries--including China, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Germany, Sweden, and USA--and over 2,000 expected attendees, the third staging of Ignite Premier Innovation Conference will be the largest to date.

Ignite is a two-day conference taking place on June 24 and 25 at Makati Shangri-La, organized by Techshake, dentsu X Philippines, and Brainsparks to support and connect the innovation ecosystem of the Philippines to the world.

This year, the spotlight will be on how Innovation in Asia is leading the charge in the global technology space. The first day will be filled with keynotes and panel discussions by thought leaders and industry experts from the region with exciting names like James Gilbert of Hubspot, Brian Cu of Grab, Cindy Wang of UXIN, Samuel Jeanblanc of Google, Amarit Charoenphan of Hubba & Techsauce, Haruka Furukawa of Slush Tokyo, and Naga Tan of Dana Cita.

The second day will be focused on collaborative opportunities through Wildfire, a groundbreaking and redefined regional pitch competition with several exciting prizes including the chance to win up to P500,000 cash from Future Now Ventures and a chance to win $500,000 from Seedstars.
