The event dubbed "Bayang Digital ang Bagong Pilipinas" was held at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City.

To recap, the expo was part of a series of activities in celebration of the National Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Month, held in June of every year, under Proclamation No. 1521, series of 2008. 

As we continue to grow our market, we also recognize the need to provide a safer online environment for Filipinos everywhere. As a leading digital entertainment company, DigiPlus, through our Foundation, will continue to support programs, and improve our own initiatives to continuously pursue responsible digitalization in the country, said Andy Tsui, Digiplus President and Bingoplus Foundation Chairman.

The theme this year emphasized the importance of leveraging ICT and other means to provide efficient government services, enhance cyber safety, and extend limitless opportunities for Filipinos.

The expo was attended by personalities from national government agencies, academe, and industry leaders in Information Technology (IT), Communications, and Technology. 

Earlier this year, DigiPlus Interactive, through the BingoPlus Foundation, announced its plan to allocate more than Php100 million for its advocacies to promote a digitally-advanced and resilient Philippines. Among its advocacy pillars are Technology Education and Responsible Digitalization, done in partnership with the public and private sector.

Some of the programs include the FutureSmart Scholarships and The PLUS Factor program. These are designed to bridge quality education and leadership development with high-potential young tech talents.

The foundation also launched the "Coding for Kids" program aiming to inject "fun" into STEM learning and inspire the youth to pursue an interest in tech this National ICT Month.

Some of the efforts to promote "Responsible Digitalization" include the Digi Buddy volunteer program to help equip target sectors with the right tools and behaviors as Filipino netizens and a "Responsible Gaming" campaign to teach the right habits when playing games online.

Continuing the National ICT month, the parties involved also have a "TechTalk Series" with youth leaders called "Tech-Ready Youth: Empowering Responsible Skills".
