CCCI sets Cebu Digital Innovation Summit
CEBU Business Month (CBM) is celebrating its 21st year as the metropolitan’s highly prestigious business festival.
In line with the celebration, the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI), through this year’s working committee headed by Charles Kenneth Co and assisted by Nimrod Quiñones, will hold a Cebu Digital Innovation Summit, a two-day convention for the business sector, academe, ICT councils, local government units and nongovernment organizations on June 2 and 3 at the Summit Galleria Cebu.
This gathering offers an opportunity for the participants to learn, interact, network and collaborate for the continuous growth of the industry on a national scale.
Special stakeholders come in the form of the newly organized Innovation Council of Cebu envisioned to seek, cultivate, sustain and promote Cebu as an innovation island through adaptive education and ICT-based advocacies.
Inspired by CBM 2017’s theme “STEP Up Cebu” (“Stepping Up Technology, Entrepreneurship and Productivity for the Upliftment of Cebu”), the event will tackle topics on “How digital innovation is critical for one’s success,” “How to prepare one’s company for the constant developments in technology” and “Disruptive innovation.”
Local and international experts have been invited to discuss “the opportunities and challenges created by adopting new business technology trends, as well as their impact on the ICT/BPM industry, particularly among MSME’s of today.”
Highlights expected during the summit are the keynote address of Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Secretary Rodolfo Salalima; a talk on “Innovations in the World” by Jorge Cohen, Google’s CEO for Marketi n g So l u t i o n s Pl a tform/Tech Innovation; a panel discussion on “Going Digital” by First Circle, Google’s Ian Macariola, PLDT SME Nation and Payoneer Philippines’ Country Manager, Miguel Warren.
