THE Philippine hotel, resorts, and hospitality industry continues to thrive with more international and homegrown properties and hotel brands opening up in various parts of the country. In Cebu, the industry is expected to grow even further with the opening of the new international airport terminal this year. Experts predict that the number of rooms in the city will increase by at least 2,500 two to three years from now, with the inventory currently standing at 5,000 rooms per night.
To help ensure that hotels, resorts, and restaurants are equipped with the latest equipment, products, and technologies, Global-Link Exhibitions Specialist Inc. will be bringing its renowned Hotel Suppliers Show to the Visayas for the first time. The Visayas Hotel Suppliers Show will be held from June 28 to 30 at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino, Lahug.
“The country is clearly reaping the benefits of the aggressive tourism campaign led by our government and this is very evident in Cebu, especially with the opening of the new terminal in Mactan Cebu International Airport,” said Patrick Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link. “As more tourists come in, the more we need to ensure that our industry is able to provide an experience at par with the global standards. This is why after years of success in Manila, we decided to bring the Hotel Suppliers Show here to Cebu – to help local industry players position their brands well and stay relevant amid the tight competition.”
