World Trade Center cited as top ASEAN MICE venue

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — World Trade Center Metro Manila (WTCMM) bagged the MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) Venue Award in exhibition category during the recently concluded 2022 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Tourism Standards Awards held in Cambodia.

The ASEAN Tourism Standards Awards is an initiative undertaken by all 10 ASEAN member states to encourage stakeholders in respective countries to further improve standards in terms of sustainable tourism services. This effort is done to sustain the ASEAN region’s objective to make it a globally-known “Quality Single Destination.”

WTCMM stood out after garnering top ratings in major criteria that evaluated its exhibition halls and meeting room facilities to be compliant to international standards, pursued to achieve positive social and environmental impacts and help promote health and well-being of all stakeholders. This also includes environmental compliance related to improvements and upgrades in technologies such as shift to automated LED lights and motion sensors, and introduction of photocatalyst in air handling units (AHU) and energy recovery ventilators to achieve quality air supply in its exhibition halls and function rooms. Also being implemented are proper waste management, including toxic and chemical substance disposal thru DENR-accredited TSD (treatment, storage, disposal) facility, and noise pollution control through management of noise levels, among others.

Established in 1996, WTCMM is a pioneer in providing a world class exhibition venue in the Philippines. It is a premier accredited member of the World Trade Centers Association headquartered in New York, USA, and the only exhibition venue in the Philippines recognized by, and now a member of, the Union des Foires Internationales (UFI), the global association of the exhibition industry.
