'Cebu Design Week' is designed to be a catalyst for Cebu's creative sectors to be instrumental in transforming the island into a dynamic and relevant circular economy and influence big business and government in the process.
A stakeholder's launch for Cebu Design Week was held at Maya Mexican Restaurant last April 6, 2018 where creative stakeholders in Cebu have joined hands to push Cebu's world reputation . The press conference was the first public introduction of Cebu Design Week which will signal the creative sectors to an active stance in bringing Cebu to the world's radar once again. Organized by Cebu Furniture Industries Foundation, Inc. and the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines and co-presented by the Department of Trade and Industry and Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the first-ever Cebu Design Week will be a series of diverse events running from June 16-22, 2018. The events will help promote Cebu as a major experiential tourism destination and will highlight the different topographical and historical sites of the island. Cebu Design Week will be an inclusive, interactive, and action-oriented undertaking that will span a wide range of disciplines that compromise Cebu's creative ecosystem.
