The Cebu Business Month (CBM) is a series of month-long business and fellowship events that aims to accelerate Cebu’s continually thriving economy, and provide economic advancement opportunities to Cebu and the rest of the Visayas region. Headed by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI), the annual event held every June also focuses on tourism, entrepreneurship, and Information and Communications Technology-Business Process Management (ICT-BPM). This year’s CBM carries the theme “Innovate Cebu,” and looks to highlight the importance of innovation in achieving competitiveness, as well as the strategic interventions possible in the key economic drivers of Cebu.
