MANILA, PHILIPPINESadobo magazine will be hosting the fifth annual adobo Festival of Ideas on Thursday, December 5, 2019, at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila, with a one-day program dedicated to the dissection and holistic understanding of “The Connectivity Economy”, as this year’s festival theme. 

With highly-acclaimed speakers from different parts of the globe flying into the Philippines specifically for the festival, it explores the worlds created when industries and sectors intersect, converge, and collaborate. It is also set to look at how the cyclic relationships between these sectors would shape the future of the world and transform it. 

Data & Technology, Environment, Education, Entertainment, Infrastructure, Food, Business, Science, Health, People, Mobile, Makers, Arts & Culture, Sound, and Media & Communications – these are the distinct and seemingly separate sectors the adobo FOI aims to bridge together through dialogue and collaboration. It seeks to unravel the boundaries between the aforementioned trades, and explore how the digital and physical world are merging before our very eyes.

Following the success of last year’s adobo Festival of Ideas entitled, “Creativity at the Heart of Digital”, where over 1,200 delegates were in attendance, it is expected to have even more involved set this year. This time, the festival will take a look at how the modern economy is fueled by collaboration over competition, and the role creative and innovative thinking plays in achieving business and sustainability goals.

Some of this year’s Agents of Innovation, or the 2019 adobo Festival of Ideas speakers, are Royal Pineda, Principal Architect, BUDJI+ROYAL Architecture+Design; Calvin Soh, former CCO and the designer of One Kind House; husband and wife duo Patrick Renucci and Rachel Renucci, founders of Chen Yi Agventures; Reina Reyes, Head of AC Analytics at Ayala Corporation and the Host of Science Says at the Knowledge Channel; and more to be announced in the coming days.
