Globe Business, Restaurant Business Network Partner for RestomaniaPH 2018
RestomaniaPH forum and expo to help SMEs grow their business
Globe Business, together with the Restaurant Business Network (RBN), has launched the first-ever RestomaniaPH 2018, the biggest and most comprehensive forum and expo event that gathered some of the most renowned names in the restaurant and café industry.
RestomaniaPH 2018 provided opportunities to restaurant owners to learn how to grow their business by giving them access to the latest trends and developments in the industry through various talks and panel discussions led by some of the leading authorities in the food, digital, and business communities.
Through the event, business owners were also given tips on how to level up their customers’ experience and be a destination of choice with help from Globe Business, the micro, small, and medium enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, and its partners in the Restaurant Business Network, the first restaurant- and café- specific business ecosystem devised to provide relevant services to companies in the food industry.
Together, the two groups are working to become a key enabler and partner for restaurant and café business owners in every step of the journey of its end-customers such as tourists and restaurant-goers, among others.
“Globe envisions ‘a nation where businesses flourish’ and Globe Business makes sure that it is at the forefront of bringing this vision to fruition. With RestomaniaPH, we aim to champion the success and growth of small and medium businesses (SMBs), the undeniable lifeblood of the Philippine economy,” declared Derrick Heng, Senior Advisor, Globe Business.
For her part, Mitch Peralta, Segment Marketing Head for Tourism and Hospitality of Globe Business, said: “We want to ensure that restaurant owners get the right partners, tools, and knowledge to enhance their overall customer experience and be the perfect destination for their consumers.”
Held at the Maybank Theater in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City, the two-day event co-sponsored by Mercato Centrale, Startup Village, and Manila Workshops featured talks designed to provide new knowledge for attendees such as “Mission Fusion,” which discussed about partnering with various food businesses to create a more exciting, inter-linked food community.
“Branching Out,” on the other hand, focused on how to manage and expand the business while “Chalk Talk” was all about creating concepts that will draw in food enthusiasts and the everyday foodie/influencer. There was also a “Food Photography” session that tackled ways to make a food or restaurant ambience “Instagram-able” as it noted the importance of social media presence for businesses to thrive. Finally, “Digital Digest” explained the tricks of the trade in utilizing mobile applications to make their functions easier and more efficient.
Late last year, Globe Business partnered with Mercato Centrale to launch the Restaurant Business Network. The network provides restaurant and café owners access to relevant and timely workshops, events, and online material, with the hope of educating them about the latest learnings and advancements in the industry. The network also gives Globe Business customers exclusive deals from network partners.
