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.

The event will also fea­ture the in­duc­tion of the newly formed In­no­va­tion Coun­cil of Cebu, a ground­break­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion of for­ward-thinkers and cre­ative minds.
