Hey Manila!
Following April’s successful launch of Seamless Asia in Singapore, we are delighted to bring you the first wave of regional Seamless events beginning with the Philippines in September! Mark your calendars for the 27th to 28th September at the SMX Convention Center.

From the rise of fintech, the commoditisation of logistics and the omnichannel commerce revolution sweeping across Asia, 2017 is set to be the most disrupted, exciting and challenging year for the e-commerce, retail, logistics and payments industries in recent memory. We’re incredibly excited to be showcasing all of the latest innovation across 2 days of content delivered by some of the leading trailblazers over 3 uniquely curated conferences.
