It’s final: Madrid Fusion Manila cancelled

It’s official. Madrid Fusion Manila has been cancelled, as confirmed by Tourism and Promotions Board COO Cesar Montano.

With all the speculations, I decided to just up and get a confirmation from Montano himself.

My story in today’s column in the Inquirer here:

In its place will be a project called Buhay Carinderia by Linda Lopez. In an interview with Linda Lopez, she confirmed that this event will be five times the size of SMX, where Madrid Fusion Manila has been held. “If Singapore has hawkers, Manila has the carinderia,” Lopez explained. “We want to make the carinderia more innovative, dynamic and relatable.”

The Buhay Carinderia launch will be led by DOT Sec Wanda Teo on April 11.
