The event industry, like most other industries in the world, has suffered tremendously because of the global crisis brought about by Covid-19. Business has all but stopped. Everyone – from musicians to photographers, from planners to hoteliers – has incurred overwhelming losses and face challenges in what is already shaping up to be a most uncertain future.
In an effort to promote positivity, the Cebu wedding suppliers banded together (in social distancing appropriate fashion!) and put out a message that was heartwarming and hopeful. They worked together, just as they have done so many times in the past, to remind clients keep the faith. “Be strong!”, the message said. And while it was for originally meant for couples and other clients who were forced to postpone their events, it also fostered this incredible energy amongst the suppliers. It too gave them hope. It too reminded them that beautiful things can happen when people become unified and work towards a common goal.
At exactly 4:30 in the afternoon on May 1st, Cebu wedding suppliers, numbering close to 1,000 of them, simultaneously posted on their personal and business social media profiles.
