The Crafting Ideas Through Creative Minds Expo, recently organized by the second-year Marketing Management students at Cavite State University – Silang Campus, stands as the creativity and collaborative skills enabled within academic settings.

This event, held under the guidance of their Marketing instructor, Sir Renz Simpao, was a showcase of creativity, strategic thinking, and hands-on learning in the Product Management and Advertising field setting.

The Journey of Creation

Brainstorming and Concept Development

The journey to the Crafting Ideas Through Creative Minds Expo began weeks before the event, with relentless brainstorming sessions. Students were tasked with developing unique product ideas that not only showcased their creativity but also demonstrated a deep understanding of consumer behavior and market trends.

These brainstorming sessions were crucial in allowing students to explore a wide range of ideas, from traditional Filipino flavors to innovative fusion dishes.

Hands-On Workshops

Following the initial brainstorming phase, students participated in hands-on workshops designed to refine their product concepts. These workshops provided practical insights into product management, including aspects such as ingredient sourcing, cost management, and production techniques.

The advertising workshops focused on brand development, packaging design, and marketing strategies, ensuring that students could effectively communicate the value of their products to potential consumers.
