THE Mandaue Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) is calling on local businesses to rev up efforts in safely reopening industries through its Mandaue Business Month (MBM) 2021 activities.
The month-long celebration is anchored on the theme, “REV Up: REVive, REVisit, REVolutionize. It will focus on helping companies adapt and prepare for the new business landscape by conducting online and hybrid events and learning sessions and community-engaging activities that will encourage Cebuanos to rediscover their identity.
Handling this year’s MBM 2021 are KGK Management Inc. general manager Kelie Ko, who is MCCI’s vice president for Internal Affairs and San Remigio Beach Club general manager and MBM 2021 co-chairperson Mark Anthony Ynoc.
“With this year’s theme--Rev up, we emphasize reviving business, revisiting Sugbuanon culture and identity and revolutionizing ideas into responses that would benefit the business sector and the greater community,” said Ko during the virtual launching on Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2021.
To contribute to the revival of the local economy, MCCI, through its partnership with the Cebu Provincial Government and the Department of Trade and Industry, is organizing a Sugbo Negosyo exhibit that will feature the products of the Top 35 and most promising Sugbo Negosyo beneficiaries.
MBM 2021 also launched MCCI Kamustahan, a new series that will feature resilient and inspiring MCCI members who can share how they have evolved their businesses during the pandemic through adaptability, business strategies and good company practices.
To revisit and appreciate Cebu culture, MCCI also launched the #SugbuanonKo Tiktok Challenge to rediscover and promote Cebu Province by tapping on the Sugbuanons to creatively transform their experiences into widely relatable content through the social media platform “Tiktok.” The challengers should feature distinctively Sugbuanon landmarks, food, products, culture and traditions.
To help revolutionize ideas, strategies and practices in the business community, MCCI is organizing the annually held MCCI Business Summit and other business seminars under the Mandaue Talks Business series.
This year’s virtual business summit features top caliber speakers who will share their expertise to discuss new ideas, new business paradigms and technological developments and business and corporate excellence in the local and global landscape.
This year’s MBM is also organizing a 30-day online wellness challenge dubbed the Cebu Wellness Revolution to encourage Cebuanos to create a habit of living a healthy lifestyle.
MCCI will also mount a ceremonial turnover of bicycle repair stations and another span of the Butuanon ecofence to the Mandaue City Local Government Unit (LGU). This is a tripartite project between Mandaue City LGU, MCCI and Vivant Foundation. (KOC with PR)
