Events That Everyone Remembers
When people ask event management companies about their best work, some might cite events filled with technical mastery while others offer the prestige of their guests. M2Live believes that our best works are those that create meaningful experiences for the audience because those will send your message across better than anything else.
Here are some of our most memorable:
Despite being the Philippines’ fourth largest trading partner, China has been at odds with the country, most recently because of the West Philippine Sea. In 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte sought to normalize relations and came back with a pledge from Beijing to invest $24 billion in the nation. As the investment arm of the world’s most populous country, the Bank of China (BoC) was tasked to build a bridge of peace with trade and investment.
On April 4-7, 2017, leading Southeast Asian business investors and government officials congregated in Mactan, Cebu for the 12th ASEAN Finance Ministers Investor Seminar (AFMIS). It was the perfect opportunity for the Chinese bank to extend their assistance to the growing Filipino and ASEAN entrepreneur community.
Established in 1935, GE Philippines is known by Filipinos for its lighting products and domestic appliances. But as a global innovator, GE has pioneered new innovations, recently in the realm of digital industrial transformation. It is changing the shape of industries across the world and GE is determined to lead this transform in the Philippines.
For the Philippines to create jobs and increase national wealth, it’s a given that the country must foster innovation. Fortunately, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) was hard at work at implementing a new industrial policy which hopes to do exactly that. But before its launch, the agency sought to exchange ideas on possible ways to foster innovation among private firms and industries, develop human resources, and enhance industry-academe innovation. It envisioned the Inclusive Innovation Conference 2017 as a forum for this much needed conversation.
NEDA wanted to hold a one-day conference to sustain awareness and promote interest and ownership in its national vision. The event hoped to engage multiple stakeholders who play a critical role in the future of our nation: students and educators; businessmen, entrepreneurs, and professionals; government officials and employees.
Even before the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) was established in 1948, Children with Disabilities (CWD) are one of the most marginalized groups in society. To help change attitudes about CWDs in the Philippines, UNICEF mounted an advocacy campaign highlighting what they can do and turn disability into THISability. For National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week, the children’s organization partnered with SM Cares, Camera Club of the Philippines, and Tanghalang Pilipino to launch a photo exhibit in different cities across the country called See What I Can Do! Additionally, the uplifting play, Sandosenang Sapatos, will be staged alongside to share its similar message.
CDRI’s Wow! Taiwan Selects is a yearly affair that promotes the best in local goods the country has to offer via a pop-up store – from beer to beauty products, shoes, karaoke devices, and much more. It gives the host country a new and fresh perspective on Taiwan, which is mostly known for its technology industry or electronics manufacturing.
In 2016, Greenpeace wanted to highlight solar energy, particularly its energy production on the rooftop of people’s homes, government buildings, schools, and churches in the Philippines. Additionally, it wanted to promote the cause of renewable power in the eyes of newly elected officials after a vitriolic election.

It is a forum for ideas that will renew our old cities and help build new ones that are sustainable, inclusive, and resilient – a platform that will help every community and every person thrive in the world of tomorrow.
In 2015, the Philippines hosted the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. As one of the lead government agencies that would organize a number of key meetings, the Department Trade of Industry (DTI) planned to hold a preparatory event in line with the APEC’s theme of inclusive economic growth.
The Philippine Development Foundation (PhilDev) is working to eradicate poverty through education, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The organizations hopes strengthen the education and training programs in science and technology, foster innovation by driving science and technology research, and build an entrepreneurial ecosystem to start a movement that will lead to long-term economic growth.
The Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) was set to launch the biggest power plant in the Visayas—a 200 MW clean coal plant in Naga City, Cebu. This was a towering achievement and a huge necessity for the country, coming at a time when the power crisis was at its peak.
Philips as a diversified lighting and healthcare company caters to all sectors of society and is committed to promoting sustainable energy use as well as healthier, more mindful ways of living. However, it struggles to connect directly with the grassroots communities, a sector that would benefit greatly from the company's message. For its advocacy to reach the grassroots, Philips tapped a long-time partner with a strong background in advocacy communication, M2.0.
