The Cebu Business Month (CBM) is a yearly activity organized by Cebu Chamber of Commerce (CCCI) to boost Cebu’s growth towards global competitiveness. CBM’s aim is to celebrate significant and leadership role that Cebu businessmen play in enterprise development, socio-economic prosperity and nation building. CBM has evolved to be the venue to share proper business practices that would improve and enhance Cebu’s business industry through showcasing new technologies and other relevant products and services. Aside from enhancing businesses, it also aims to affect wide-scale economic development especially among the small and medium enterprise.
Considered as Cebu’s biggest and finest business festival, CBM is usually celebrated every month of June. It aims to inspire, promote and grow Cebu business by gathering industry stakeholders to activities and events in the areas of:
- Information & Communications Technology and Business Processing Management (ICT-BPM)
- Creative Industries
Each and every year, the CCCI ensures that the CBM will move to greater heights by making it more meaningful and relevant to the current needs and trends to help the business community in Cebu and neighboring islands sustain growth and development.
This year’s CBM theme is “STEP Up Cebu” which stands for “Stepping UP Technology, Entrepreneurship and Productivity for the Upliftment in Cebu.”
Now on its 21st year, CBM shall continue to boost the connection and collaboration established by the chamber with its existing partners as well as creating new linkages together with the key players in the global market and enabling them to work together in cementing coopetition among each other.
