Shangri-La Plaza turns 25

For Shangri-La Plaza, there was no better way to celebrate 25 years of existence than by showing gratitude and appreciation to those who have contributed to their continued success. The historic mall in Mandaluyong City recently commemorated their silver anniversary by honoring their re- tail partners for their support and friendship throughout the years. Present at the event were Shang Properties Inc. COO lawyer Karlo Estavillo and Shangri-La Plaza EVP and general manager Lala Fojas, who led the toast. The appreciation dinner was attended by the mall’s top executives and friends from the media, and was an opportunity for Shang to hand awards to the retail partners who have been with them from the start. Held at the Edsa Shangri-La Manila, it was a lovely evening of looking back at all that has transpired while also acknowledging that the best is yet to come. Con- gratulations to Shangri-La Plaza for 25 years of being the country’s most established upscale shopping and lifestyle destination!
