Why Japan for IPSUM JPX?

With Japan being one of the Philippines’ strongest economic partners, IPSUM JPX highlights the long-standing relationship between the two countries; not only in business, but also in the way Japan has influenced culture, food, and fashion. Before k-pop, there has always been anime, and our favorite Daiso/Hakkien stores which influenced and still influences our country today. Who better to learn about marketing and influencing strategies than with the Japanese, their culture and how they help it shape their leadership and innovations.

Attendees can look forward to experiential cross-cultural expositions, educational discussions on best practices and innovations, and an engaging series of marketing workshops and networking activities at IPSUM JPX. The one-day event will be further divided into three Tracks discussing Japan’s distinct Culture, Leadership, and Innovations.
