Cebu Business Month 2019 Embraces Innovation

With the way this digital age has been a game-changing process in today’s society, people have noticed how industry players have been benefited by the way technology has made its progress faster. With this, Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) recognizes the importance on the leverage of technology in the local industries through its annual flagship project Cebu Business Month (CBM 2019).

CBM 2019 was officially launched last April 26, 2019 at Marco Polo Cebu with the theme “Innovation in Action” to emphasize how the tourism, ICT-BPM, entrepreneurship, and other industries will benefit through innovations that drive growth, build connections, improve business productivity and global competitiveness. This year’s business month will offer a series of well-curated events such as conferences, exhibitions, and pitching sessions that will help encourage entrepreneurs to engage in innovation and put action towards it. There will be major events along with other minor events that will run from May - June, these include the Grand Opening Salvo on May 31 at Ayala Center Cebu; the International Film Festival Curtain Raiser on June 5 at Robinsons Galleria Cebu; the Entrepreneurship Summit and Innovation Expo from June 12 - 14 and CEO Networking Night on June 13 at Waterfront Cebu Hotel and Casino; Tourism Innovation Forum on June 18 at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu; Business-In-Golf Tournament on June 20 at Alta Vista Golf & Country Club; Lumba’g Laag sa Sugbo from June 21-23 at the Northern Cebu; How to Franchise Your Business Seminary on June 26 at Golden Prince Hotel & Suites; Grand Chamber Awards and Fellowship Night on June 28 at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu; Franchise Negosyo Para sa Cebu Exhibit on June 28-29 at Ayala Center Cebu; and CBM 2019 will be concluded with Sugbo Entertainment Expo Cebu from June 29-30 at Robinsons Galleria Cebu.

These number of activities will help highlight how each industry will benefit with the use of a digital platform and how it can benefit in a money-generating outcome in the long run, an example being with the Innovation Expo 2019 where all their collaterals are digital. CCCI President Virgilio Espeleta shared that businesses should innovate and do it through technology, “Let us experience and get into action as we provide every participant opportunities to adopt innovative ways of doing business.”
