CE-Logic to address IR 4.0’s impact on education in next MIBF exhibit
CE-Logic, Inc. continues to shape the future of learning and librarianship in the Philippines. This September, as an exhibitor in the upcoming 40th Manila International Book Fair, we are set to explore the opportunities and challenges that await the education sector in the Fourth Industrial Revolution or IR 4.0.
With the theme “IR 4.0: Defining the Future of Philippine Education,” CE-Logic will showcase its world-class and integrity-based digital learning materials and innovative solutions for academic institutions in the country. The exhibit is slated for September 11 to 15, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City during the 40th MIBF.
IR 4.0, according to Professor Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, is a period characterized by the fusion of technologies that blurs the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. Schwab coined the term in January 2016 during the forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Since then, IR 4.0 has been synonymous with new technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, modern biotechnology, and the internet of things.
CE-Logic’s upcoming IR 4.0 exhibit is part of the company’s efforts to strengthen its thrust towards addressing the changing needs of teachers, learners, and the academic community brought by the new technological era. Last May, the 11th CE-Logic National Electronic Conference started the ball rolling by convening with university and college library directors, library and information specialists, and other members of the academic community to discuss IR 4.0’s impact on the library systems and practices. The National Electronic Conference is an annual two-day event organized by CE-Logic to provide librarians nationwide with a venue to discuss current issues and challenges in the profession and to advance library and information services in the country.
Throughout the fair’s run, CE-Logic will offer discounts for subscriptions to Cengage, Elsevier, Euromonitor International, PressReader, PlagScan, LexisNexis, Tritech Digital Media, Wolters Kluwer, Cambridge University Press, and Taylor & Francis exclusively for visitors of the event.
The MIBF is the biggest and longest-running annual book fair in the Philippines and the prime venue for B2B and B2C events of the printed and digital content industry as well as allied industries such as stationery and other multimedia publishing. It provides an avenue for foreign and local publishers, distributors, booksellers, agents, authors, and talents to converge, exchange ideas, and collaborate. The event is organized by Primetrade Asia, Inc.
